Cycling in New Zealand


Cycling in New Zealand is as diverse as you could imagine.  It will take you to isolated beaches, rugged coastlines, magical bush, old gold routes, pristine rivers, quaint villages, mineral belts, farmland and vineyards.

In New Zealand there is a route that stretches the entire length of the country (The New Zealand Cycle Trail), there are rail trails and multi-day off-road trails, (The Great Taste Trail, Otago Rail Trail, The West Coast Wilderness Trail to name a few), there are mountain bike parks and velodromes.  Whatever your taste in biking – road bike, touring bike or mountain bike, you will have a unique experience in New Zealand.
