Another section of the cycle trails being developed around New Zealand is being opened in Nelson on Sunday.

The new 6.8km section of the Great Taste trail in Tasman will enable cyclists to ride from the entrance to Rabbit Island through to the Mapua estuary.

A new ferry service will take cyclists and walkers to the Mapua wharf area.

The New Zealand Cycle Trail Programme says a 175km cycleway will eventually loop around the Nelson-Tasman region.
