3 Trails in 1 day

First we had to tick off being tourists in Cromwell. So pretty and the historical part of the town is amazing.

Then yesterday it was time to hit the Central Otago trails.

Coffee stop in Clyde before getting the bikes
Huge thanks to the Bike It Now team. Your bikes and service was awesome.
Otago Rail Trail Clyde to Alexandra
Alexandra on a perfect spring day
Roxburgh Gorge Trail truly amazing

Amazing day of riding finished off with the River Trail from Alex back to Clyde.

Clyde – Alexandra – Roxburgh Gorge Trail – Alexandra – Clyde = 47km.

Put it on the To Do list. We will be back for more exploring.

Tiki Touring Fiordland

Doing our bit to support the local economy and being tourists yet again in our own backyard.

This was the first time we had both been down this way since the early 1980s so was like a new discovery and can now see why tourists come in droves to visit this beautiful part of NZ.

Te Anau picture perfect

South Island Roadie

This would have been week 3 riding out bikes through Asia but during these crazy times it wasn’t to be.

Instead we have hit the road exploring our back yard and having a blast. Even have the folks joining us so some good quality time. Some new territory for us visiting spots we haven’t visited before, loving exploring our backyard.
