Great experience. Great scenery.
Did it as independent cyclists hiring the bikes & panniers from Mike Barnett at The Around the mountains cycle company. Mike organised comfort seats for the bikes and an extra front carrier on one of our bikes to take our tents. Mike also dropped our panniers off for us at the top of von hill on the first day. I am not a cyclist and really appreciated those things.
We camped the first night at the Mavora Lakes. This lake warm in comparison with lake Wakatipu.
We rode to Mossburn Railway hotel on the 2nd day. Great pub to stay at.
Nice rooms. Nice hot shower. Great food.Sky tv for the rugby.
We rode to Athol lodge on 3rd day. Lovely place to stay. Has fully equipped kitchen and warm fireplace in lounge. Great showers. We ate at the brown trout cafe in the village.
Beautiful dinner.
Last day we rode to Kingstown. Quick dip in Lake Wakatipu and then met the around the mountains shuttle bus organised by Mike. On the bus was our packs which Mike had stored for us whilst we were on the bikes. We were then driven back to Queenstown and given plenty of time to empty the gear from our panniers into our packs before being dropped at the airport with time to spare before our flight out at 6:10pm.

We experienced headwinds on our 1st and 3rd days which were tough for us. On the 3rd day we had a tailwind leaving Mossburn which has the nickname of windburn.That blew us down the path. Pure luxury.

This ride for me was awesome. I have done 3 other great rides over the last 5 years. Otago rail trail, Timber trail and the mountains to sea. The varied scenery from Lake crossing to majestic mountains to Lake camping to small towns to rural farmland make this my favorite so far. The wind made it hard but in a way added interest for me.
The Around the mountains cycle company headed by Mike Barnett really helped us in every way they could to have a great time. I am grateful.
My mate and I are mid 50's blokes mates who try to do an adventure away in February each year.
This trip was challenging,fun and refreshing..Perfect for us at our stage of life

Where the trail goes, I have no idea but it was fun exploring it as far as I did. Make sure you stop off for a swim in the creek/river running next to the trail

We had an awesome day biking on the 'Around The Mountain Cycle Trail' starting at Five Rivers then to Garston and return. The trail is in great condition and a credit to this that planned and built the trail. Fantastic views all along the trail. Great food and coffee at Five Rivers and Garston. Looking forward to the next ride on the trail.

Cycled from Lumsden to Athol and back again the next day as part of Duke of Edinburgh award training.
Love this cycle trail - the hills are never too bad (remember, trains didn't like steep hills!) and the track is well maintained in most places.
The only BAD thing is that one of the farmers has made it very obvious they didn't want the cycle trail and they keep gates locked. We had to lift our bikes over 5 gates - not easy when travelling with children (15yrs down to 8yrs).
Hopefully this will change as the rest of the trip was awesome (and fantastic to have a tail wind from Five Rivers!)

Living locally I've done several short rides along parts of this trail. I particularly like the section from Lumsden to Five Rivers. The first stretch is close to the willow-lined Oreti River. Coming out onto the Five Rivers Plain there are great views across to the Takitimu and up to the Eyre Mountains. The trail is well built and generally easy riding with a few short stretches along quiet country roads.
