Thermal by Bike - Te Ara Ahi - National Cycle Trail
Rotorua District Council
APR gave project support to the successful Stage Two Feasibility Study and Business Case for the 'Thermal by Bike' cycle trail (Rotorua to Orakei Korako), as part of the New Zealand Cycleway Project. The initiative was subsequently approved to proceed in September 2010. Rebranded as the 'Pathways of Fire' cycle trail and then reverted to 'Thermal by Bike'. This project involved a combination of desktop literature review, primary research and stakeholder consultation. Subsequently field work was undertaken to confirm the route, traffic mitigation measures and a business case was devleloped for the cycleway which was then supported.
