We’d heard so many cyclists rave about New Zealand, that we blocked off 3 months to explore it all.
It wasn’t nearly enough. We could have easily spent 6 months on the lonely tracks and backroads of the island. They always led to the most magnificent scenery.
The highways were less endearing, with heavy traffic and narrow shoulders, and we had a few uncomfortable moments while in New Zealand. They only convinced us even more that the unpaved roads were definitely the way to go.
