Local Rides

For those looking for a gentle pace, Queenstown has an array of stunning scenic trails alongside its many lakes and rivers as part of the Queenstown Trail, winding from Queenstown to Gibbston through historic Arrowtown.

Adrenaline-seeking riders will find thrills heading up into the mountains, with world-famous trails such as Coronet Peak’s Rude Rock and Hot Rod amongst Queenstown’s crowning jewels, or in the lift-assisted Skyline Mountain Bike Park with over 30 world-class downhill trails and 450m of vertical descent.

Bike hire is available from a range of shops in Queenstown or Arrowtown, including electric bikes and specialist mountain bikes.

Great Rides & Multi-Day Trails

Queenstown is an ideal base for a number of the Great Rides of New Zealand.

The recently-opened Lake Dunstan Trail starting from nearby Cromwell is a fantastic one-day ride alongside the lake edge and the mighty Kawarau and Clutha Rivers, finishing up in Clyde.

The Central Otago Rail Trail is a 3 – 5 day ride that is one of the original classics and a must on any keen cyclist’s bucket list – a 152km journey along the route of the old Otago Central Railway through golden hills and farmland.

The Clutha Gold Trail and Roxburgh Gorge Trail also depart from close to Queenstown, offering spectacular natural scenery and colourful history along the way.

Visit the NZ Cycle Trail website for more information, or organise a guided tour or shuttles through Around The Basin.
