Otago Rail Trail

April 2023

Over three days I cycled New Zealand's most famous rail trail from Clyde to Middlemarch. Running along the route of a former rail line, the trail has a gentle gradient and a great industry of accommodation and food places along the way. This made it a great introduction to multi-day cycling trips. I was lucky with the weather for the first two days but the last day was a killer, cycling right into the wind for most of it. I was very glad to reach the end and got in the shuttle down to Dunedin, exhausted.
