The completion of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail is just the start of a region-wide network of cycleways bringing new business opportunities and reversing the decline of small Northland towns, Far North Mayor John Carter says.

On Saturday Mr Carter opened the last and arguably most scenic part of the trail, the 28km section from Okaihau to Horeke, which means the cycleway now stretches 84km from Opua in the Bay of Islands to South Hokianga. It is the only trail of 22 in the national cycle way network that connects two coasts and the only one north of Auckland.
