2025 Gym Trip Options

Our original plans of hiking the Milford Track in 2025 were blown apart in 6 minutes – that’s how long it took to sell out! So we have compiled a list of options that sound E X C I T I N G!! The figures and timelines are all ballpark – we’ll go in to details and quote a price and date once we know which trip is The One! All “ballpark” figures include 12 weeks of training, training calls, and individualized training plans, and the due date to vote is 30th June 2024. While you’re not committing to coming if you vote, please only vote if you are seriously considering it.

  2. Rail Trails, NZ
    All of them. There are four. The advantage of a rail trail is it’s usually flatter and firmer, which means you can use any old bike.
    The Otago Trail will take us 4-5 days, Dunstan Lake we’ll do in one, Clutha Gold trail we’ll do in 2 days, and Roxburgh Gorge is just one day too. 8-9 days riding, with a prep day, transit days, a rest day in the middle, and at least one RnR day at the end.

These trips are a wonderful opportunity to train for a reason, overcome uncertainty and fulfil one of those elusive bucket list items that we never get around to ticking off. While they sometimes can be hard, there’s nothing quite like the sense of pride and self worth that you feel when you finish an event like this!
