    I think New Zealanders have a motto that if it moves you should be able to ride it. Here is another example of how you can try adventures while having safe fun in New Zealand. You get a definite feel for the people. Our group was the two of us and a bunch of Australians in a wedding party that was throwing a "ride down the mountain bachelor party." Well, why not?

    Open spaces, bright blue lake, mountains around... Make for great cycling. Not much services, be warned...

    In the backgound you can see the lake far below. This is an exhiliarating ride down a narrow track. Bikes are equipped with special brakes. You have a guide, who will fix your flats if you get any.

    Equipment: Sunscreen!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: If it is raining and nasty up at Mt.Cook village is a Nor'Wester wind blowing - then you can pack a picnic and head to the east end of the lake.
    Often during a Nor-Wester the east end of the lake is in lovely Sunshine and a warm breeze.
    There is a great place with an information centre and toilets. And heaps of picnic tables

    Fondest memory: Brie and Crackers
