A Cyclist’s Paradise

Cycling in tropical paradise

The southern region of New Caledonia offers recreational cycling at its best. Winding its way along surf-buffeted seashore and palm-fringed sandy beaches, a dedicated bicycle path takes you from Numea to Les Boucles de Tina, a recreational cycling facility.

Les Boucles de Tina, keep right

The design of this bike park reminds me of an Austrian ski hill. There is a separate riding range for the kiddies to show off their skills to their parents, but the main part of the park features an easy, asphalted bicycle path for the less adventurous as well as a host of well-marked dirt tracks of varying levels of difficulty, ranging from green (easy) to black (expert).

The heart-pumping “pump run“

Great recreational fun for the whole family, off the beaten grid and out of the cyberloop.

I’d love to hear from you.
