In 2014, I went on a wonderful trip to New Zealand. Riding the Rail Trail, an over 90 mile railway track turned bike trail that takes you through the South Island’s beautiful Central Otago, was a highlight. Mostly flat, it’s leisurely riding, but you get to pass through golden rolling hills, stay in boutique inns and get a glimpse of New Zealand rural life. If you go, make sure to overnight at the Wedderburn Cottages and the Pitches Store in Ophir.
