We left Lake Ruataniwha and the South Island rowing Regata for a short trip into Twizel. Once in Twizel it was back on to the Alps to Ocean leaving town you can see some lovely new homes. We travelled by road up to the canal then took a short trip to visit Ben Ohau Cheese; a very small off grid cheese making place. Matt the Cheese Maker is a very interesting bloke, worth a visit. We then continued our journey up the canal and eventually coming to Ohau lake. The Cycle goes around the lake on a trail with great views everywhere, the trail comes out just short of Lake Ohau village which we cycled past on the way to the Lake Ohau Lodge where we settled for the night with a very nice dinner.
