Cycling Tours New Zealand
As a travel destination, like their rugby team, New Zealand sure is hard to beat. One of the best ways to experience real New Zealand is on a cycling tour. Our cycling tours in New Zealand let you meet the locals, feel the clear fresh air and sunlight on your face, earn a taste of the world class wines and enjoy the ‘takaro’ (fun) spirit of New Zealand.
Our cycling tours in New Zealand are fun and relatively easy. Yes there are lots (and big) mountains in NZ, but we avoid riding up or down those. Our cycling itineraries focus firstly on wine regions, and secondly in areas that are relatively easy to cycle, preferably using the wonderful network of cycling trails that are off road and safe. And finally it helps if the region is within easy reach of a major city to enable simple travel arrangements.
