ONE DAY WONDER: ROXBURGH GORGE

GRADE 2   1 DAY

From NZ$270pp

• This is the ultimate one day trip, it has everything you would want in a cycle journey and all in one single day.
• Considered NZ's little Grand canyon.
• Learn about Central Otago Gold mining history
• Experience taking your bike on a jet boat adventure

Our suggested itinerary would be to bike the River Track to Alexandra (12kms) which is a great single track trail then head into the Roxburgh Gorge. You will then ride 10km of seriously spectacular countryside until you get to Doctors Point. We will have the boat waiting for you to transport you the 12kms down the Lake to Shingle Creek. You would need to ensure you are at the Doctors Point Jetty at the arranged time.
Then ride the next 12kms to Roxburgh Dam, some of the sights are super impressive here and riding the switchbacks will be memorable. 
You cross the Roxburgh Dam and follow the Clutha Gold Trail for approximately 9kms and cross the Clutha River into Roxburgh town itself. We will then meet you at 103 The Store Cafe, load up your bikes and shuttle you back to Clyde

• A bike suited to the terrain, helmet, gel seat, top mounted pannier, ergo grips and a Bike It Now! drink bottle
• Boat ride with informative commentary from Doctors Point to Shingle Creek
• Shuttle from Roxburgh Town back to Bike It Now! in Clyde

Additional Information

From our perspective and to make things really easy we suggest you start at our shop in Clyde our bikes are very well suited to this trail being Trek Roscoe 7’s.
