What type of riding do you do?:
Happy to be on the bike, a mixture back country exploring to shuttle runs on the local hill. Enjoy technical trails and smooth flowing tracks. It's all about being on the bike and taking in whats around you. The passion to go around the next corner or over the next hill.
Your Local Trails / Where do you ride?:
Living in Queenstown there is a good selelction of flowing track in town, either ride up or use the gondola. Good variety of trails. Longer rides in the back valleys, and other trails that can link up to make multi-day trips. With lots of good trout fishing it worth while to take a rod.
Also lived in Wellington. Assessibility to good tracks for a city is awesome. Most times you won't need a car.
Also lived in Rotorua, over 100km's of flowing single through Redwoods.
