Tekapo to Twizel (this can be done either way)
This ride is a great day out for people who have time restraints but want to do the first section of the A2O, alternative route, cycle trail. Begin your ride from Twizel (54km) or the Lake Pukaki Visitor Centre (44kms) and enjoy looking at the view all the way. The section between the Visitor Centre and the Tekapo B Power Station follows an off-road, easy riding trail, around Lake Pukaki's stunning shoreline. As mentioned in the heading, this ride can be done in either direction.
Price $50.00/bike hire; shuttle $180.00 per group
