Mountain Biking North
34 great rides in New Zealand's North Island
Dave Mitchell, Maps by Geographx
New Zealand's North Island has a wide range of world-class mountain-bike tracks, and Mountain Biking North is a guide to 34 of the best of these rides. Selected by expert mountain biker and photographer Dave Mitchell, they range from straightforward and easy rides close to our urban areas to challenging trips deep into the wilderness.
Readers will be able to choose from classic rides such as the Karapoti north of Wellington, coastal rides in the Wairarapa, the 42nd Traverse in Tongariro Forest and other adventures in the Central North Island, through to a range of rides in the Hunua Ranges south of Auckland, and many more.
The informative text and photographs for every trip is accompanied by a Bird's Eye map from innovative Wellington mapping company Geographx, which provide a superb overview of the terrain covered.
A sister volume to the best-selling Mountain Biking South, published in 2010, this book is a must-have purchase for any mountain-biking enthusiast, whether beginner or experienced. Not only is it a fantastic guidebook, it also makes an extremely appealing memento for anyone who loves to take their bike off the asphalt.
A companion volume to Mountain Biking South, also by Dave Mitchell.
