If you're a pedestrian, sometimes it seems as though you're the last to be considered. Other modes of transport get all the big bucks while we get to stumble along on our own, catching our heels on the cobblestones and dodging the seemingly interminable earthworks.
So it's nice to see that there's a dedicated Cycling and Walking journey planner from the Greater Wellington Regional Council
In an effort to encourage people to leave their cars at home, Greater Wellington has announced that from July 1 this year, bikes can ride on trains for free. At the moment, travelling by rail with your bike will cost you another adult fare. Sounds like a good idea to us.
This tour includes some exclusive experiences not open to the general public and expert guides such as an historian, a geologist and an ecologist for a deeper insight into Tasmanian landscape, history and heritage. Come and join us on this amazing one-off adventure limited to 20 participants.
