The Prime Minister turned the first sod on the national cycleway project last week.

The level of interest around the cycleway continues to gain momentum in Southland.  The 175km ‘Quick Start’ track announced by John Key starts in Queenstown and ends up in Lumsden.  The great thing about it is that local communities are seeing the potential tourism and associated economic benefits to them and the region and getting off their backsides to make it happen.

The interest is not just from keen cyclists – local communities from Kingston to Bluff want to know how they can contribute to make the southern part of this innovative project.

Cycle tourism is forecast to create £14 billion in Europe by 2020.  Australia is seeing massive potential benefits in increasing its cycle network.

Luckily for us, the Central Otago Rail Trail has given us a head start to attracting keen cyclists who want to see the ‘real’ New Zealand.
