NZ - Queenstown

Below is a preview, click to read the full post


I've been a user of information on this site for quite a while, and never really had the opportunity to contribute until now.

I've just returned from a 10 day holiday to Queenstown NZ where I did a fair amount of riding. I went with the family (wife, 6yr old boy, 5yr old girl) all of whom are keen cyclists so we did a lot of riding and exploring.

NZ South Island knowledge

Hi guys, I'm lucky enough to be spending Christmas nr Queenstown this year, the missus and I are going to take the XC bikes over and I know there are a plethora of single track rides and circuits there, but I have been instructed to find a scenic ride, my partners fairly fit so I would think something along the the lines of the Anderson and oaks with views? This ride could also be in Wanaka or maybe Arrowtown, any recommendations would be a great help.

Hi Everyone (not sure what category I should have put this post)

Im heading to the Rotorua Redwoods the weekend after next for a hit and run. Saturday afternoon and Sunday until I can't ride no more (so maybe lunch).

Im hiring because I have the work trip from hell either side of Rotovegas and don't want to be lugging the bike box around. I'm staying at the Alpin and have a car.

What happens when you take cycling seriously

An interesting article in Saturday's AFR on NZ's efforts to provide facilities for cyclists and the effect it can have on the economy.

The 18 “Great Rides” comprising the New Zealand Cycle Trail will span the country and are designed to be conquered by biking dynamos and amateurs alike. When completed early next year, it will provide 2300 kilometres of trail, linking up with other largely on-road cycling routes and giving tourists more opportunities to cover the country by bike.

"Aussie" Moonride...NIGHT RIDERS!

For all the keen night riders out there ...

For the last 10 years the Kiwis (!) organised a fantastic "Moonride Festival"...

Sounds like a lot of fun!

See for details and videos...

I'm gauging interest for a similar event - here in the beautiful nightlife of the Kuringai/Garigal woods...(we can start small - the kiwis limit theirs now to 390 TEAMS...)
