CHOOS­ING BEST ROUTE

Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

The NZ Trans­port Agency’s NZ’s Favourite Places to Ride com­pe­ti­tion is open un­til May 31. It says this coun­try has some of the best places to bike in the world. From breath­tak­ing of­froad trails to new pur­pose-built ur­ban routes, rid­ers are spoilt for choice. Last year, the com­pe­ti­tion re­ceived more than 12,000 nom­i­na­tions and votes. The Otago Cen­tral Rail Trail took the top award from The Red­woods in Ro­torua. This year’s com­pe­ti­tion has a new best com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity cat­e­gory and top town award. The cat­e­gories are ur­ban ride, Nga Haerenga – the New Zealand cy­cle trail, off-road or ad­ven­ture ride, and com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity - velo­dromes, bikes in schools, BMX and pump tracks.
