Classic New Zealand Mountain bike rides 10th edition.

Where are the best mountain bike rides in New Zealand?

With more than a thousand to choose from, this book is our definitive answer. We have distilled three decades of mountain biking, track building, research and exploring into a guide to the best of the best. It’s a celebration of New Zealand’s forty finest adventures on two wheels.

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 looking at.

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

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
