After the official opening of the first stretch of the great eastern shared path last week, the big question on many people’s lips is: how do we get there? When the full path is complete, you’ll be able to ride from town. But for now, you can make your way via train to Glen Innes to ride the first part. Or, if you’re local, just bowl up to one end or the other, Merton Rd near the train station, or St Johns Rd next to the Sunhill Garden Centre.
(Also, if you’re local: got any hot tips for fun things to do at either end, or useful approaches to the path if you’re traveling with less confident people on bikes?)
And speaking of local – this handy leaflet is going out to neighbours in the coming week, outlining how the path fits in to the area, and explaining the full timeline: gi-to-tamaki-dr-shared-path-newsletter [PDF]. See excerpt below.
