Start on Marine Parade outside Race HQ and head towards the river. Make left turn onto Hikoikoi footpath and continue until you reach Waione Street. Turn right on to the footpath and just before the bridge go down the ramp leading to the subway under the Waione Street pipe bridge.

Pass under Ewen Bridge and turn back to take the asphalt ramp on the left up onto Ewen Bridge on the north side. Cross Ewen Bridge and turn left on to the stopbank heading north. Stay on top of the stopbank until you reach Melling Bridge/Harvey Norman (take care crossing two car park entrance roads).
