Cycle Trails: Waikato And Rotorua

Postby mjc on Fri 7/Oct/11 3:13pm

Anyone ridden any of the Waikato River Trail or the Rotorua 'Pathway of Fire' (both part of the NZ Cycle Trail Project)?? If so I'd be keen for your thoughts/opinions....

Here is a link to the Ofical Trail site. It gives heaps of info on the status of the trails. http://www.nzcycletrail.com/

As we live at Reporoa and drive to Rotorua once a week we are keeping a close eye on the developments on the Geo Trail. Non of the off road sections are complted yet. But the on road sections are all there of course, hence the 88% completed status.

The Waikato River trail is mostly ready to go, the Offical opening of the whole thing is on the 5th November. From what we've ridden it is a mix of very easy grade 1 grade 2 sections and grade 3 in other sections because of the amount of climbing or how technical it is. It is going to be a awesome ride when completed.

I'm keen to hear anyone's opinion on these two too. Planning a mission to Rorotua later in the year and wondering if I should do one of these as well.
Anyone?
