New Off-road Section Opens on the A2O

The Offical Opening Ceremony for the Aviemore to Kurow Section

On Saturday the 8th of February 2020, a new off-road section on the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail opened at the Waitaki Village. Stories of the trail were shared, and the ribbon was officially cut. Cyclists, tour operators, and all those involved in the trail gathered to celebrate this fantastic milestone for the A2O Cycle Trail. The ceremony was followed by a group ride on the new section which runs from Aviemore to Kurow. The trail is now well on it’s way to coming completely off the state highway.

What a great afternoon it was! It was so good to see four tour operators all turn up to show their support and offer shuttles and bike hire. We collected donations for the Kurow Wetlands Trust for our bike hire and shuttles. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who turned up to celebrate this brilliant milestone for the trail. And what a stunning new section of trail it is!
