Based In Mountain Biking Mecca, Rotorua
We will be based in the world famous MTB mecca of Rotorua, on the North Island. Rotorua has built a fantastic reputation for awesome singletrack, and has 100′s of KM of trails to explore. The most famous is the Whakarewarewa forest area with trails such as ‘Split Enz’ and ‘Little Red Riding Huck’ to explore , but there are also plenty of other areas nearby. We will have 7 full days to ride, plus 2 half days. Other rides planned will include the W2K trail in Taupo, Craters of the Moon, and the Moerangi Track in Whirinaki Forest, a stunning 36KM singletrack adventure. We also hope to get a chance to have a day of DH shuttles
An Unforgettable Biking Trip
A strong level of fitness and mountain bike experience is strongly recommended. Accommodation will be a mix of comfortable motel/hotel style accommodation for our overnight stops in Auckland and a huge communal house in Rotorua just a short walk from the town centre, which has internet, a hot tub, a swimming pool, and more to keep you busy when you are off the bike.
Awesome Comfortable Accomodation
Relax in our super comfy group house, just a short walk to the centre of Rotorua where you can enjoy a dip in the thermal heated pool every afternoon.
We had a great time doing the Lofty Descents tour with Ian. A really interesting way to see parts of Adelaide you wouldn't normally get to see.
The Lofty Descent Tour was the highlight of our Adelaide trip. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the cycle which was easy yet exciting.
