Alps to Ocean Trail, New Zealand

I just did a writeup of our trip to a new cycle trail in the South Island, New Zealand.

If you are ever in the area, it’s a beautiful ride!

Outstanding, mate. Superb time of year for it.

You’re right, too. Nothing like being in a chopper in the Southern Alps!!

Sounds like a great ideal ride!
NZ sounds like a very uni friendly place on this planet for sure.

Thanks for the writing and pics. Sounds really like a great ride. Is there nice spots to camp on the way or is it better to shuttle to and fro for the nights?


Plenty of accommodation along the way, from camping through to upmarket lodges and backpackers. We stayed in Twizel mainly because Anna’s grandmother lives there.

Here is the video of our tour:
