FIRST RIDE WITH LADS AT WAIROA GORGE MOUNTAIN BIKEPARK – New Zealand 2017 – CG VLOG #88

Cedric Gracia is currently in NZ for the NZ Enduro and during the middle of the week he filmed this wee video in the Wairoa Gorge. I was lucky enough to be riding up there yesterday (and also got tag #8).

Book of the Week

BikeNZ CEO Kieran Turner and cycling author Jonathan Kennett have teamed up to write a comprehensive guidebook to the best 100 recreational road rides in New Zealand.

The book provides everything you’ll need to choose a trip that best suits your favoured style of road riding. The hills, the flats, the scenery, quiet roads and infamous traffic hot spots.  If it’s important you’ll find the details here.

Full ride descriptions, along with route maps and altitude graphs, are provides for three or four classic rides within each region. The authors have also provided Tour de France climb categories, annual average daily traffic volumes (AADT), as well as café stops along the ride.

These well-researched rides are a great way to combine experiencing the natural beauty of New Zealand with the joy of biking – what could be better!
