Timaru also has good cycling tracks around its perimeter. There is a good 150km cycle 'Rail Trail'(old train line)in Central Otago. A comfortable 30km a day ride, staying at small gold mining towns on the way. The South Island only has 1/3rd of NZ's population and has good roads, not a lot of traffic. Tons of space and less stress. Timaru has a good climate both summer and winter. About 600mm of rain a year and 2,000 hours of sunshine.
