Those looking for a fun activity the whole family can
enjoythese holidays, may like to hire a bike?
Ranfurly Bike Hire is situated halfway along the rail and
offers a range of 60 leisure mountain bikes, including
children's bikes, tag-along bikes, baby-trailers and
babyseats, so the entire family can participate.
Ranfurly Bike Hire can organise packages to suit the needs of
individuals, groups and families wanting to ride the trail,
including bike hire, accommodation, food, luggage, and
shuttle transfers. It can also deliver "fully serviced"
bikes to any destination along the trail, whether it be
Clyde, Alexandra, Middlemarch or any other location.
The Otago Central Rail Trail runs for 150km between Clyde and
Middlemarch, along the way encompassing some spectacular
scenery; mountain ranges, hills and gorges across the
Maniototo Plain, through old gold-mining towns and finishing
in the picturesque fruit-growing areas of Central Otago.
Because the rail trail follows an old railway line, it is
suitable for most age groups and fitness levels to cycle, as
it offers a level gravelled surface with no steep hills to
climb. It is recommended people allow at least four days
to cycle the trail, riding for approximately four hours each
day - anything more can become quite uncomfortable!
The owners of Ranfurly Bike Hire (and booking agents for
therail trail), Janet and Dick Parker live locally,
making them familiar with the trail and the surrounding
area's weather and gradients. They are more than happy to
assist those wanting to embark on this extraordinary journey
whether it be by bike oron foot.
