An amazing experience - to cycle through so much of Central Otago over 4 days. I still feel I need to pinch myself to check if it was real. Pauline was a wonderful cycling companion. Nick was always there where he said he would be - with snacks on the trail or somewhere to stop for lunch. Both Nick and Pauline have a wealth of knowledge about the trail and the history of the region. Their one-stop-shop with one payment for the whole tour, including bike hire and accommodation made it very easy.The offtherails accommodation in Ranfurly is superb and being transferred there each night meant that there was no packing up and moving on each morning. Highly recommended.
