NEW ZEALAND CYCLING ROUTE MAPS
Below are maps of routes that I have cycled in New Zealand; this was at the South Island. These are routes we took when we cycled along the Central Otago Rail Trail. We did cycle at Lake Tekapo, Lake Pukaki, Queenstown and Christchurch, unfortunately I did not track those rides (... to view those rides click here to see Cycling New Zealand 2014).
Click on relevant screen zoom rectangle (at the top right hand corner of each map) to go to the respective route map:

New Zealand Cycling Route Map: Central Otago Rail Trail - Clyde to Omakau

Route: Bus Ride: Queenstown>Clyde;
Cycling Route: Clyde>Alexandra>Galloway>Chatto Creek>Omakau
From Queenstown we boarded an Intercity bus to head on a 85 km. trip to Clyde. We did a bit of cycling around Clyde town and then rode on the 150th Anniversary Clyde to Alexandra Trail. Over at Alexandra we rode around looking for a winery to sample some wine.
It is at Alexandra that we really started our trek along the Otago Central Rail Trail, kicking of at a point from a place curiously called Chicago Street. This first day trail ride of 29 km. ended at Omakau. These cycling trails are on the route of a former railway line and are un-tarred; they are instead covered with large gravels. They are several bridges (mostly wooden) and tunnels to cross.

New Zealand Cycling Route Map: Central Otago Rail Trail - Omakau to Wedderburn
The route is from Omakau (Oh! My Cow) to Wedderburn (Weather Burn); please pardon us for the play on the places' names, it helped us remember the places more easily.
I did a slight detour at Oturehua...

The final day of our Otago Central Rail Trail ride was a 42km. route, one that was fairly flat and quite straight taking us pass a few towns and also a memorial.
