The Central Otago Rail Trail has been buzzing with laughter and the crunch of little feet and wheels.

Clyde Primary School pupils took part in a bike ride along the trail last week to celebrate the trail's 20th anniversary.

Otago Rail Trail Trust chairwoman Kate Wilson said the trust would celebrate the anniversary with trail events and activities over the next 12 months.

"The trust is proud to celebrate its 20-year anniversary with its partners, local community and supporters of the trail.

The Ranfurly and Alexandra Lions clubs provided a sausage sizzle lunch.

Wilson said she was thrilled to have the support of local schools.

"It highlights what the trail is about, providing not only economic opportunities for the community but also as in this case encouraging active lifestyles for our own communities."
