Spend the day cycling through some of New Zealand's most beautiful regions with this one-day cycling adventure on part of the Otago Central Rail Trail. One of the most popular and scenic pickup trails in the country, this is a great way to taste the trail without dedicating multiple days.

Transfering you from your Dunedin accommodation to be kitted out with your bike, helmet, repair kit, odometer and trail information, you'll be all set to begin your adventure from the Middlemarch depot. This journey takes you through parts of Taieri Gorge, Princes Creek Bridge and Daisybank, all on a vehicle-free trail with you cycling at your own pace.

All cyclists are advised to wear comfortable clothing and enclosed shoes, bring bottled water and a camera as the scenery you will pass is truly breathtaking.

Tours depart Dunedin from 7:30 am to 8 am and will conclude at around 6:30 pm at Dunedin Railway Station.
