Bridle Track

 Length      10.6km
 Time 1-2 hours     
 Difficulty  Grade 1

The Bridle Track runs along the city side of the Manawatu River from Awapuni to Te Matai Road.  The track is a combination of sealed paths, gravel and dirt tracks.  Near the Fitzherbert Bridge the track passes through the Victoria Esplanade, which has toilets, a playground and a scenic railway.

You can start anywhere along the route as there are many access points to the track through out the city. This is a great family ride.  The iBike4Kids event is held in May each year, on the tracks within the Victoria Esplanade.  This network of tracks through native bush and grand old English trees is a great venue that caters for all skill levels.
