Introducing Todd Heffernan

We love to meet our trail users and this month we caught up with Aussie holiday maker Todd Heffernan. Todd was holidaying in Queenstown this winter with his family and was absolutely blown away by Queenstown's natural beauty and of course what better way to see it than by bike...

WHO? My name is Todd Heffernan, I am from Tamworth, NSW, Australia.


WHAT BRINGS YOU TO THE QUEENSTOWN TRAIL TODAY? I love mountain bike riding and trail running . I am a type 1 diabetic for over 30 years. I came to Queenstown with my wife and two young boys.

I wanted to experience the Queenstown Trails on a mountain bike that I hired from Cycle Higher in Queenstown, it is a Marin Pinewood Mountain with the 27.5+ tyres it was really fun to ride on the trails with.

I guess you could call this an adventure ride, but fitness is my main goal for better diabetes control.


WHICH TRAIL ARE YOU ON? The trail I did was from Queenstown up to Gibbston. I left at 9:30am and got back at about 5pm. This pic was at Thompsons Hill in the part that goes through the deer
