“The Southern Alps looked the most interesting and although challenging, there were options to ride shorter distances. I especially liked the quieter locations for lodging, like the A-frames at Makarora and the Wilderness Lodges.
I enjoyed the support of the guides and liked Bill’s sense of humor. I also enjoyed getting to know the other cyclists over evening meals and along the road, as well as the fantastic views and scenery, especially the rain forest.” - Jamie, England Dec 2011
