Keen to try your hand at the Little River Rail Trail but want to cut out the part where you bike through the city? Hop on our shuttle from Central Christchurch to Motukarara, where you will bike to Little River and back, and then ride in our shuttle back to town. This is a great option as this is the most scenic part of the whole rail trail and is very easy to naviagate.

The Little River Rail Trail track is one of the easiest and most picturesque rides on the Banks Peninsula that mostly follows the route of an old 19th century railway line between Hornby and Little River via Prebbleton, Lincoln, Motukarara and Birdlings Flat.

The Rail Trail takes you through a changing landscape that has seen a thousand years of human history. It passes through rural areas and settlements on the Canterbury Plains, skirts past the massive flanks of the ancient volcanoes which make up Banks Peninsula, and hugs the shoreline of a vast lagoon, Te Waihora or Lake Ellesmere, and its smaller twin, Te Roto o Wairewa or Lake Forsyth.

It is an ideal gateway-ride if you want to try your hands at cycle-touring; the terrain is mostly flat and the conditions quite forgiving. The length of the trail from Motukarara to Little River and back is 49km which makes an easy ride, especially on our fleet of comfortable e-bikes.
