Since this book was first published in 1991, mountain bike events, tracks and bikes have undergone a stunning transformation - from pushing heavy fully-rigid clunkers along overgrown stock routes to whipping around purpose-built trails on lightweight full-suspension machines. And over that time, this book has evolved, from a small black-and-white publication to the 416-pager you're holding now.
This, the 10th edition of Classic New Zealand Mountain Bike Rides, has focused on our 40 favourite rides. They range from fantastically popular mountain bike parks like Whakarewarewa in Rotorua to the inspirational, multi-day, Old Ghost Road on the West Coast of the South Island. For each ride, you will find: * a detailed route description * Geographx 3D maps * elevation charts * essential tips and nearby services * the intriguing back story to these fabulous rides
