River Riders NZ cover
Description From the humble home of Rider Riders, gifted to us by the kind people of Tainui, our friends and owners of the 'The Arrowlodge Motel' on the lower esplanade near 'The Point' you begin your journey across river from the home of the Maori king - Turanagawaewae, at the northern most point of the 'The Great Te Awa River Ride in Ngaaruawaahia 'The River Kingdom'. You ride south towards the largest man made water crossing of its type in New Zealand 'The Perry Bridge' which spans the 'Mighty Waikato River', a modern master piece that seamlessly blends into the natural beauty of the landscape and river below. Stick around for a twilight ride and you're in for a special treat as the bridge has more to offer than meets the eye. You will continue towards Horotiu passed the Ngaaruawaahia golf course and towards the new 'Te Awa Lakes' development currently accessible off the 'Te Awa River Ride' onto Hutchinson Road and into the 'Perry Bike Park' where kids and big kids play and ride, grab a coffee and a bite to eat before you return back to River Riders to rest at the 'River Bed Motel' and share your experience with family and friends on social media, post your fav pics on Instagram to show off what you've been up to before you head over to the local restaurant of choice 'Poppy's - RSA' which pays tribute through its name to all of the fallen soldiers, men and women that gave their lives for their country - 'We will remember them' - The ANZACS. If you're lucky you may very well be told war and local story's of old by one of the locals here. You can discover Ngaaruawaahia in 2-3days but if you want to learn the ancient ways of the Tanganata Whenua - TAINUI, then you may need to stop into the local real Estate office as these secrets are not for sale. If you sit near Waikato Te Awa and look upwards to the Hakarimata hills you may imagine what it was like here hundreds of years ago when this thriving Maori tribe prospered on these lands and rowed their waka here in 'The River Kingd
