Jack trying a recliner bike for size

Next morning, as we had breakfast in the tiny kitchen, we were joined by another couple. They told us that Clyde is the start of the Otago Rail Trail. They planned to take 4 days to do 90km of the track, then come back another time to finish it. They were riding a recliner style bikes and told us it was definately a more comfortable way to ride.

The trail is 150km of biking, walking or horse riding along what was a train track. It is the first one to be constructed in New Zealand and is hugely popular with over 4000 people doing the trail last year. It is a well organised tourist attraction. Bikes can be hired at any of the villages along the route. accommodation is readily available and any distance can be attempted each day. Your baggage can be transported each day to your next destination. We noticed a number of vans loaded with bikes and luggage along the road.

If we had more time it is some thing we would do… Maybe next time…
