We had a brilliant ride from the volcano peak all the way into Akaroa with magnificent scenery and awesome speed down the hill. Darren and Doreen were really excellent hosts who gave us great advice I made us feel very welcome.

All enjoyed our ride and was good to get some local knowledge of the area and history. Only downfall was that I think the bikes could have used a bit of maintenance.

You may want to consider an option of starting at the nature reserve as it could be a bit of a hike for some to go both ways from the drop off point Cheers
