Are you looking to experience Queenstown’s magnificent scenery and exhilarating outdoor activities? One of the best ways to do both is on one of the region’s thrilling mountain bike tracks. Leading Kiwi rider Kate Fluker, who is on track to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games, loves living in the area for this very reason. “Everyone is active”, she says. “It’s just part and parcel of living here.”
There are plenty of cycling tracks on offer in Queenstown, including the 122-kilometre Queenstown Trail, which covers pictureseque locations including Lake Wakatipu, Lake Hayes, Arrowtown and Gibbston. Kate praises the town’s ‘let’s do this’ attitude. “The Queenstown Trail trust and the Mountain Bike Club are really pro-active in getting trails all around the mountains,” she says.
