Let yourself be led by beauty… from the mountains to the sea.
If you’re looking for picturesque scenery and want to feel the serenity of your surroundings, then this easy to intermediate grade cycle trail is for you. Take in some of the best sights and sounds New Zealand has to offer as you pedal your way through the initial stages of the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail, on and off-road trails gently leading you across some of the more than 300km from the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean.
Because The Jollie Biker is based in Twizel three of the sections of the Alps 2 Ocean Trail are on our doorstep in the MacKenzie Basin. Choose a single cycle trail for a magical day trip that will stay with you for a lifetime or combine all 3 into a longer trip.
So what are you waiting for? Gear up and get ready to see New Zealand at its very best.
