On Yer Bike is only five minutes north of Greymouth and offers a biking adventure second to none.

I have a choice of going hard out and experiencing 90 minutes of Mike’s Mighty Mud Track (the muddiest, wettest and most difficult of all its tracks), but seeing as I haven’t really experienced something like this before, I decide to opt for a “magical mix of mud” with the Enchanted Forest Tour.

Exploring Hamilton Gardens

This afternoon I spent some time exploring Hamilton Gardens and it turned out to be a very intriguing place! I knew it was a popular visitor destination – the most popular attraction in the region, in fact, with about 600,000 visitors each year – but I’d never actually been there myself.

There’s a Productive Garden Collection, with kitchen and herb gardens, and a Cultivar Garden Collection, where you’ll find a myriad of roses, rhododendrons and camellias, but it was the Paradise Garden Collection that caught my imagination.

Bicycle Travel: How to Start? Useful Tips for Beginners

Bicycle travel is gaining more and more popularity. And this is not surprising, because this format of travel allows you to feel every kilometer of the way with your feet. In the memory remains a lot more impressions, and you have a completely different perception of the road than if you had done the same way by car (something to fly at speed, something to sleep or watch because of immersing in your thoughts). Each person has an innate need for travel and his/her way to realizing it. If you’re afraid to take a trip on your own and don’t have anyone to keep you company, there are plenty of bike clubs in Lancaster, both paid and free. But if you’ve made up your mind, this article is for you.
