Ooh, too soon.


Renting bikes gets expensive, and yours is probably more fun for you to ride. (no idea what it'd cost you to bring it over)

Rotorua, Queenstown, Nelson and wellington have high concentrations of tracks near town.
Look at trail forks for general info.

Also, give us more detail about your preferred riding. Tech or flow? Easy or hard? Wheels up or down?
It's a small country, but the roads are long so good planning will reward you.

xc and enduro style and all day epics. will hit Auckland next month.
been looking at old ghost road. time split between cycling and backpacking around so think hauling own bike around will be out the question.

Hiring bikes is expensive. Starts at about $100 a day for a decent trail bike and drops to about $50 for longer rent periods. Also might be difficult to find a decent bike for where you're at.
