The Riverlands Rail Trail is a sealed cycleway from central Blenheim to the Riverlands industrial estate to the east of Blenheim. The trail is four kilometres long, beginning in Blenheim at the end of McArtney Street. The trail follows the railway line, crossing Alabama Road near Riverlands School. At Cob Cottage Road, it is possible to connect with the Wither Hills Mapp Track.

The trail is mostly flat, with a couple of sections with very gentle gradients so suitable for cyclists of all fitness levels.

Officially opened on 3 September 2013, the cycle trail cost approximately $200,000 to construct.

Did you know? Marlborough Online receives no funding to operate; all operating costs are paid for as a labour of love by one person. If everyone in Marlborough gave just $1 per year, it would fund significant content development and quality improvement. $2 would be enough to employ a second person part-time, and $3 would allow for two people to work full-time.
