An easy cycling trail from Foxton township to Foxton Beach following a shared walking and cycling pathway.
This relaxed ride begins in Foxton and leads you down to the sea-front, Manawatū Estuary, the boat ramp and the camping ground. To start, head along the path that runs alongside Ladys Mile for about 4km. About 500m from the town's entrance, turn left onto the bike path that runs alongside the field and playground. This pathway takes you down to Hartley Street, where you’ll ride past the Boating Club before joining the pathway again. Follow this pathway alongside the Manawatū River. The path will be a mix of limestone, and sealed sections. Follow the path through the pine trees and you’ll end up on Pinewood Road by the holiday park. You can access the Manawatū Estuary from here, or head over to the park for some dirt tracks.
From here, you can safely bike to the Foxton Beach entrance on Marine Parade, head to Seabury Avenue for the iconic Mr Grumpy’s for fish and chips or the Little White Rabbit for coffee and delectable local treats.
By car, either park off the main street (Ladys Mile) on Duncan Street in Foxton. Or, park beside the trees on Pinewood Road, near the motor camp close to the birdwatching information board.
