Get Moving – Get Walking Get Running Get Cycling
Get Moving is an Active Communities project supported by Sport NZ, Tasman District Council, Nelson City Council, Nelson Marlborough District Health Board and Sport Tasman.
Get Moving wants to help and encourage everyone to enjoy the many opportunities we have to get out on the pavements, tracks and trails. Whether you are doing it with friends, family or as an individual and whether you are having a go for the first time, re-discovering, or extending your skills in an activity you already do.
The Get Moving Website lists events for all abilities to take part, groups that provide social support and some tips on getting started.

Richmond is very lucky to be surrounded by two fabulous mountain bike locations. Check out these links for Silvan Forest and Kingsland Forest in the Richmond Hills at the base of the Mount Richmond Forest Park.
The Great Taste Trail
Richmond has several points where one can join Tasman’s Great Taste Trail. Such a wonderful ride where one can stop for coffee, wine tastings, brewery visits, real fruit ice creams and much much more. Village Cycles on Queen Street in Richmond has bikes available you can hire for this purpose.
