We are four women in our 70's who love to ride and stay somewhere upmarket every night. The staff at Cycle Journeys Twizel, listened to our requests, suggested alternatives and add ons. We ended up with 6 night trip that worked really well. The step-through ebikes were just what we wanted. They rode well, easy gears and boost. The shuttle service for our bags and us on the odd occasion was great. Allan the driver, knew all about the trail, the bikes and how to handle the different surfaces. A great guy. Paul at the Twizel office , listened to our requests and sorted everything out for us. Excellent restaurant suggestions, great accomodation thanks a million.

From the first phone call I had with Libby to discuss cycling the A2O Trail, I knew we had made contact with an efficient team. She listened to my comments and concerns and came up with an itinerary suitable for a 70+ cyclist to ride and enjoy each day. We chose the standard accommodation package, perfect for one night stop overs, our luggage was collected each day and transferred to our next nights accommodation so it was there waiting for us, when we arrived each day. The itinerary was succinct, yet had all of the detail we required, along with separate instructions for locating our accommodation. Bikes were clean, came with a pannier were in good condition. I would highly recommend Cycle Journeys to anyone.

Cycling the A2O was all sorted by Cycle Journeys - From the moment of our first phone call to with Libby of Cycle Journeys reservation team we knew we would book our cycling package to ride the A2O with them. We were able to discuss a suitable itinerary to meet our needs, 1 over 70yr old on an Ebike, 1 over 65 on a bicycle, neither wishing to cycle long distances each day. Libby came up with a perfect itinerary which included shuttle from Christchurch airport to Tekapo, bike hire, accommodation and transfer of our luggage each day with optional extras. We had two choices of type of accommodation, we chose the standard which was more than adequate for one night stops. Our A2O experience was awesome, from the moment that Geoff, our shuttle driver met us at Christchurch, until the end of the trail at Oamaru. The bikes were great, with the pannier provided, and our luggage was always waiting for us at our accommodation upon arrival.

We just completed our A2O trip booked through Cycle Journeys. AMAZING. They organised the itinerary, transfers, bike hire, fabulous accommodation, some meals, bag transfers and side trips. From our initial booking made in May with the lovely Libby, to checkin/briefing with Paul & Shannon in Twizel, to the smiling faces at the finish in Oamaru, we had exceptional customer service from every staff member. Our self guided trip from Mt Cook to Oamaru was faultless, helped by a great briefing prior to the start and easy to follow notes and booklets for each section of the trail. We hired standard bikes and found them great, although for a little extra comfort would recommend a gel cover!! We could not fault a thing. Thanks so much for organising one of our favourite trips. Highly recommend Cycle Journeys.
