St. James cycle trail

Nga Haerenga - The New Zealand Cycle Trail network are a series of 18 'Great Rides' that will take cyclists through some of New Zealand's most iconic and picturesque country.
Nga Haerenga - meaning 'the journeys' in a physical and spiritual sense - is a New Zealand Government project to develop a national cycleway network.

The St. James is the first of these 'Great Rides' to open to the public - and traverses 64 km of the St James Conservation Area near Hanmer Springs in Canterbury.

The NZ Government has invested NZ$50 million into the New Zealand Cycle Trail project, and the aim is to have the 18 'Great Rides' completed and ready for use by summer 2012 - 2013.
It is envisaged that the 'Great Rides' will be progressively linked with other cycling routes and facilities, and will cater for a range of cycling abilities, types and purposes.
Once completed the 18 trails are expected to provide more than 2,000km of cycleways.

You can find out more about the St. James and the other great rides at NZ by BIKE, and the Department of Conservation websites.

Earlier this year Richard Schofield embarked on a multi-day trip through the St. James sporting some pre-production samples of our Tour racks and Side frames. Thanks for the photos Richard, and the valuable product feedback... it is greatly appreciated.
