New Zealand Cycle Trail to be expanded to include backcountry roads
The Ministry of Economic Development is planning to expand the New Zealand Cycle Trail.
It intends to add a number of back country routes to the 18 predominantly off-road trails being built.
The first expansion ride will be on State Highway 43, known as the Forgotten Highway, which runs through the King Country and Taranaki.
Ministry of Economic Development spokesperson Sarah Berry says other routes will follow.
