Model and actress Megan Gale shares her top tips for getting the most out of your cycling holiday in New Zealand.
1. It’s all about new experiences
Every day is a different journey on The Great Rides of New Zealand’s Cycle Trail. Be sure to stop and explore each place you pass whether it is a quaint historical town or hidden beach, there is so much to discover. Being on a bike enables you to get up close and to see things from a different perspective.
2. Get to know the friendly locals
Striking up a conversation with a local is never a bore! New Zealanders are famed for being friendly and welcoming so take advantage of local knowledge – you’ll learn something new every day.
3. Take a fully charged phone with you
Another tip I would say is to always make sure phone is fully charged before heading out. The scenery is spectacular and you want to be able take lots of photos. Besides a phone can be extremely handy in case you run into trouble, or if there is an emergency.
