Here be a link to ye Ofical Trail site. It gives heaps o' info on ye status o' ye trails. http://www.nzcycletrail.com/

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

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