Ausie Xc Rider Visiting Rotorua Taupo & Tauronga

Postby Tez on Mon 14/Dec/09 8:40am

G'day all...

This particular Aussie XC hard-tailer is visiting:

Rotorua (& Taupo) 22nd to 29th December
Tauronga 30th Dec - 1st Jan
Auckland 2nd & 3rd Jan

... and I'm keen to check out NZ's famous single track & trails for a few hours a day, hopefully early morning (we're doing the tourist thing after my rides).

I'm a 6 hour/enduro rider, pretty fit and cope allright with most techo stuff, but I'm up for rides with any skill/fitness level (beats getting lost)...

So let me know who's up for it. Bring on Redwoods & Craters of the Moon... can't wait! :)

... and I'll have my Ay Up! lights with me, so keen for a night ride... :blink: (in theory, I'm doing the dusk to dawn in Brisbane at the end of January).

Anyone up for it, let me know.
