Meet the new Queenstown Bike Trail 12th Nov 2012
From bike trails to wine trails and everything in between... meet the new 110+ kilometres long Queenstown Bike Trail.
The trail, one of the great rides of the New Zealand Cycleway project, was officially opened by New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key on the 18th October 2012.
The new trail is made up of existing and new trails looping around the Queenstown region. Highlights of the trail include wineries and cafes, lakeside trails, riverside trails, swing bridges and historic bridges, historic buildings, mountain views and picnic spots all with Queenstown and Arrowtown as the hub.
We tagged along with a one of the local bike tour operators on a semi-guided day trip to experience some of the best the new trail has to offer.
