    Bestes Wetter 🌞👍wir sind heute mit gemieteten MTBs einen Teil des Ortago Rail Trails gefahren. Über Viadukte, Brücken und durch einige Tunnel führt die ehemalige Eisenbahntrasse von Dunedin nach Clyde. Erbaut um die Jahrhundertwende zur Zeit des Goldrausches wurde Material und Menschen in diese Gegend gebracht. Die Trasse wurde nach dem Bau des Wasserkraftwekes in Clyde 1990 zurückgebaut und wird seitdem als erste Great Rides Radstrecke genutzt. In der Gegendwurden auch einige Szenen von Die Hobbits und Herr der Ringe gedreht.Read more

    Kirsten! Cycling! Yaah!

    It's all come together! We're cycling the Otago rail trail with Kirsten!  Day 1 is under our belt and so far so good. Only 150 km to go. The bikes are great, the trail super, the company exquisite 😊.

    We travelled by van to a little town a couple of hours from Dunedin. Clyde is so cute...and start of the rail trail. We got fitted with our bikes...ready to go. First priority... fuel up with a cheese roll.  Now ready for the river trail to Alexandra... another cute town... I think there's definitely a theme here.

    Wine tasting at Judge's Rock cellar door. That might become a theme too 🍷. A small winery that's trying to break into BCLB. Hope they do!

    It's just a warm up day so we loop back to Clyde, check in to our lodging, find our suitcases waiting in the it. Now off to Olivers brewery to sample their wares. Then to Paulinas...50 metres down the road... fabulous fettuccine and blue cod dinners.

    I think we're going to like this trip!  Especially if the weather stays like it was today. Ok everybody... cross your fingers 🤞🤞🤞.
