2 families of 4 people, ranging from 9 years up, enjoyed the beautiful scenery, sounds and local cuisines over 5 days in July.

Preoccupied with the beauty, there were no grizzles or even thoughts of the cold or fatigues from a perfectly organised trip by BIKE IT NOW.

Absolute trip of a life time...brilliant!

We had an amazing time cycling from Clyde to Middlemarch. We went late in the season consequently the weather was colder. The first day was too wet to cycle and the last day blowing a gale, but we still managed to complete the ride. The advantage of going late autumn was there was snow on the mountains, which looked stunning, and we had the track to ourselves. We met only three other cyclists on the trail!! We were extremely pleased with Bike it Now. Very professional, very friendly and very helpful. Excellent bikes to use and the appropriate gear to go with it. We thoroughly recommend this fabulous rail trail across breathtaking Central Otago scenery. We highly recommend using Bike it Now to anyone contemplating the trail.

We cannot say enough good things about Bike it Now. A special thanks to Lois for planning a memorable trip from Clyde to Middlemarch. Lois went the extra mile by planning things for our non riders to do on the trip too.

Everything matched or exceed our expectations.

Thanks guys.

This is one of the best getaways that we have ever done. I highly recommend this ride. It is not too hard and suits all ages. You just need to plan the length of your ride to suit the participants. We did it in 4 days. 2 x 50+ yr olds and 2 x 20 yr olds. Bums were a bit sore but a bit of practice beforehand can reduce this. I think that some people might be phased by the 150+ kms but its only about 3-4 hours riding per day with plenty of time to stop and relax/eat/have a beer at one of the great pubs along the way. "Bike it Now's" equipment is top notch and the service is excellent. Highlights were "Chato Creek Pub", day 2 scenery, great steak at Omakau pub. Can't wait to organise another vist with a group of friends. 10 out of 10 from me!!!!! Mike N, Sydney, Australia.
