Cycling Holidays Transformed

By the end of 2012, 10 of the 20 tracks making up the 2340km New Zealand Cycle Trail were open to riders, with the remainder scheduled for completion by the end of 2013. Veteran mountain biker Jonathan Kennett was recruited as a Cycle Trail adviser early on, and along with his brothers Simon and Paul has published the definitive guidebook to the routes – Classic New Zealand Cycle Trails. “Up until three years ago, the Otago Central Rail Trail was the only easy, multi-day cycling experience we had,” Kennett said. “These new trails have transformed cycling holidays in New Zealand in that people – people who don’t consider themselves cyclists – can get out and explore new territory.”
