Just finished a fantastic "West Coast and Glaciers Cycle" of 6 days and over 450km of cycling from Queenstown, over the Crown Range and up the West Coast, then towards Arthurs Pass ending with a spectacular train ride to Christchurch. A great group of 11 cyclists from North America, UK and Australia. A real highlight were our 2 fantastic guides Dave and Brett - who were well organised and managed the group very well despite cyclists of very differing abilities, yet remained very friendly and gave lots of tips and Kiwi culture and history along the way. Accommodation was generally basic motel-style but a good dry and warm place to rest at the end of a long (and sometimes wet) day. Food was plentiful in good restaurants and cafes, as well as some picnics at beautiful lakeside rest stops along the way, and a snack box in the bus. Only piece of advice is that if you want to spend most of the day riding then you should feel comfortable riding 75km or more most days including some big hills, but if you are happy riding the bus some of the way then you could do as little as 25km per day.
