Rotorua/MTB holiday advice

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

It is common knowledge that in order for one to call himself a mountain biker (particularly in Australia), he must make a pilgrimage to Rotorua at least once in his lifetime. Hence when I consider the need for a MTB holiday between the completion of my internship at Christmas and the start of my final year at uni in March, this is naturally my destination in mind.

Just wanted to say thanks to kittheknightrider for his tips on where to stay in Rotorua. The Alpin is excellent. Close to the trails, a functional kitchen, free wifi, a bike wash, and very comfortable. Our suite has separate bedrooms for a very reasonable rate. A bike mounted atop the sign is a good clue they welcome mountain bikers. Smiling

We arrived yesterday and hit the trails for the first time today.

Highlights of todays riding were The Dipper, A Trail, Tickler, B Rude Not 2 and Mad If You Don't.

Rotorua Redwoods - Video Highlights

HI Guys

At the end of January I spent 1.5 days riding the Rotorua Redwoods. Despite having an unnatural obsession with watching the AMB Mag and FlowMTB videos I still was unprepared for the amazing experience of riding the Redwoods. Probably the most surprising aspect was how technical the trails were, despite the lack of rocks.

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.
