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.

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.
