Cycling in New Zealand - Canterbury (Chapter)
This is the Canterbury chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling New Zealand guidebook.
Made for bike touring: the terrain here is so diverse that even on a short ride you'll find visual variety. Consider the wealth of hidden bays and isolated beaches of Banks Peninsula, charming Christchurch and French-influenced Akaroa, and the rough-and-tumble wilderness of the Southern Alps. And that's just for starters.
- fantastic off-road riding and decadent thermal pools in Hanmer Springs
- hang out with whales and scoff scrummy seafood in Kaikoura
