We’re about 2/3rds of the way through the Otago Rail Trail taking our time and interviewing people along the way. We’ve heard a lot of hype about it and are now believers. It is amazing country and lovely riding. Aside from the scenery, the thing that touches us the most is watching people riding it. One person sticks out in particular for me. The gentleman looked to be in his late 50s, his face was sunburned, his knees were sunburned but he had the biggest grin on his face as he was pedaling up the gravel hill. He was having the time of his life on the trail. Say what you will about the trail, but the fact that it can get non-cyclists out there riding is pure magic. Here are some photos from the last few days.
