Megan & Alistair's Weekend in Rotorua Day 1

 

Megan and Alistair are the lucky winners of the competition we ran in conjunction with Air New Zealand, Rotorua Airport, Central Park, RideRotorua.com and Okareka Cottage. They won a direct flight from Sydney to Rotorua, accomodation at Okareka Cottage, and a bit of assistance form us in getting around and doing the things that make Central Park such a great visit.

Although it is very simple to bring a bike along for a weekend, we decided to source bikes locally. Bike Culture came to the party with a Santa Cruz Blur for Alistair. Cycle Zone has a great fleet of hire bikes and we selected a Specialized for Megan.

Arrival at 2.40 into Rotorua meant we could transport the visitors to their lodgings at Okareka, get Alistair set up for a ride, and be in the woods by 3.30. That is one the great things about a direct flight into Rotorua and we were keen to make the most of it.

We got in a magic loop of the lower trails, there were a fair amount of puddles and a bit of mud around but Alistair still came out with a huge smile on his dial.
