An interesting experience! We find it a little difficult initially, but we soon get the rhythm going. We go down to the lake and along to the golf course before heading back through the woods. Different! I can't see where I am going, sitting at the back, and there is one fairly steep downhill section which ends in a 3ft wide wooden bridge withoug hand rails. Decided to walk that bit. The girl in the rental place is surprised at how far we have managed to get in one hour. She also says she thinks we did remarkably well when we set off as some people don't even make it to the road before they fall off - or cycle into the table!
One of the Great walks starting right outside of Te Anau. Just did a part of it up to Luxmore Hut as it was booked. Great views, but it's a long day! Take plenty of water!
