Where to start - Clyde or Middlemarch?
You can cycle the Otago Central Rail Trail in either direction - Middlemarch to Clyde or Clyde to Middlemarch. There is no right or wrong or easier way to cycle the trail and there are pros and cons for starting at either end. We suggest choosing the direction that best suits your travel arrangements.
If cycling from Middlemarch to Clyde we suggest flying into the Dunedin Airport and out of the Queenstown Airport.

How many days will I need to cycle the Rail Trail?
We recommend cyclng the Rail Trail over at least five days. Five or more days allows for a relaxed and enjoyable cycle holiday without feeling sore, tired and rushed. Having a rest day in the middle of your tour is a great idea and allows more time for you to explore Central Otago.
