The New Zealand Cycle Trails Nga Haerenga
Jonathan Kennett, author of New Zealand Cycle Trails Nga Haerenga, was born in Christchurch but was raised in Invercargill, Dunedin and Wellington. In the late 1990s Jonathan and his brothers, Paul and Simon, began working for councils around the Wellington region designing cycling tracks, and managing the development of the award-winning Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park. Jonathan developed a strong interest in cycle touring, and later road cycling. In 2009 Jonathan was employed on the Technical Advisory Board for the New Zealand Cycle Trail advising the government on all aspects of the cycle trail. From 2010 to 2013 he worked as a project manager for the New Zealand Cycle Trail, overseeing the construction of trails from Hawke's Bay to Westland, and being on the project team that started developing a nationwide network of safe cycle touring routes.
