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.
