Thanks to Geoff and the great company of those on this inaugural tour for the Molesworth Tour Company, this was an outstanding experience. Great weather certainly helps as did the super comfortable gel seat that Geoff provided me with but I have to comment on the great activities that were added on to the cycling that possibly makes this a stand-out tour. We loved the new experiences of curling in Naseby, clay bird shooting with locals in Lauder and learning heaps about Alaskan Malumutes at the Real Dog Adventures near Wedderburn. The accommodation that Geoff had booked included Kokonga Lodge, Danseys Pass Hotel and Dunstan House and these were all appreciated after a day of cycling. The quality of the accommodation and food at Kokonga Lodge was the highlight and I can see why Sir Peter Jackson also chose this place for his base during the filming of "The Hobbit". It was great to have our final night on the Trail at this superlative location. Our final day was an enjoyable ride before a fast clip back to Queenstown Airport. We still had time for a great lunch at Ewes and Moos Cafe in Ranfurly which I would recommend along with the Ranfurly Hotel, Wedderburn Tavern and Muddy Creek Cafe in Omakau which were our other lunch stops. Dinners included the 3 course meal at Kokonga Lodge which was superb and the Post Office Cafe in Clyde was a great start to our tour. All the bikes were well maintained and none of us needed running repairs, just the derrieres!! Thanks to Geoff for another great tour with the Molesworth Tour Company. Looking forward to the next one.
