Just came back from New Zealand last week. New Zealand is definitely a cycling paradise with its never ending scenic routes, blue skies, fresh air and all around bicycle friendly environment.
Personally, I find the South Island to be more interesting for me given its wide open spaces where there is more sheep and cows compared to people. More bike trails are coming up all over New Zealand which is a good thing.
I hope to return someday for more cycling in this pristine paradise.
Enjoy some of the pictures I took for inspirations.
