Link: Central Otago Rail Trail cycling guide | Spectacular and simple

Cyclist looking for a spectacular, but relatively easy, journey should head for New Zealand’s South Island, writes Rachael Oakes-Ash. The Central Otago Rail Trail is New Zealand cycling’s pride and joy and the inspiration behind the country’s $50 million, 3000km national cycleway initiative announced last year. The three year project will offer cycling trails through some of New Zealand’s iconic terrain from the tip of the North Island to the far reaches of the South Island for all levels of cyclists.
