Fun for the whole family

News

Yes the weather is terrible at times now that winter is in full effect. Whilst many cyclists choose Nelson for cycling adventures in the warmer months of the year, friend and family groups are beating the winter blues and booking our Great Taste Beer Tour. Completing the 16km flat circuit is nice and simple, family friendly and completely off road.

Most people go anticlockwise, following the old Railway Reserve towards the Nelson Classic Car Museum (which has a nice cafe) and the first bar; Speight’s Ale House. Onwards towards the coast and the Honest Lawyer, a classic old British-style pub set right on the water. Enjoy the crisp winter air in the gorgeous gardens, or sneak inside and enjoy the large fire, allowing you to warm up with a drink inside, whilst admiring the coastal views outside.

The Honest Lawyer:

Families may want to take a detour around Monaco, a sand spit with beaches, a playground and reserve with great views over the Waimea Inlet.

Continuing up the coast towards Richmond, Eddyline Brewery is a bar and pizzeria that always delights with its wide range of batch brewed beers and delicious wood fired pizzas.

Heading back towards our base, make sure you leave enough time to pop into the legendary McCashin’s Tap Room. Redeem your voucher for a paddle of beers (or Rochdale cider) to decide which is your favourite brew from this historic Nelson institution.

After the short ride back to our base, we’ll be grateful to hear stories from your adventures whist we shuttle you safely to your home from home here in sunny Nelson!

Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

We are evolving and adapting to minimise our impact on this wonderful planet we call Te Ao / Earth. Choosing to offset 120% of the carbon emitted by our vehicles and electricity consumption, the wonderful people at Ekos are rewilding Mohua, an indigenous forest in Golden Bay. We're proud to support this and other great initiatives to improve the biodiversity and resilience of our natural habitats.
