The Queenstown Trail has made it to the finals of NZ’s Favourite Places to Cycle 2016. That’s no surprise – these bike trails are truly awesome. We’re up against some stiff competition though from the Hauraki Rail Trail, Hawke’s Bay Cycle Trails, Great Lake Cycle Trail, and Otago Central Rail Trail so hopefully we will manage to scoop the coveted title! The overall winner is announced on 2nd March!

It’s been a huge biking summer for Around The Basin to date and we are looking forward to continued great weather through to April. The trails have been in primo condition throughout the summer and a bit of rain during the past week has settled the dust nicely. Motatapu in coming up in a couple of weeks so lots of people are out riding the trails in preparation – once again we’re looking forward to the spectacle!
