What you'll do
Once I pick you up from our meeting spot we will be heading to the River Head Forest or Woodhill MTB park (https://www.bikeparks.co.nz/)which is only 20 to 30 min away. You will be transported out of the city life and into the most beautiful part of New Zealand’s natural beauty. You almost won't believe you're on the fringes of a metropolitan city listening to the sea waves and birds chirping in the secluded forests. My experience is designed for someone who is a cyclist or active person and recommended trail is 40km hard gravel wide track and 700m climbing in the Riverhead but the route is very flexible as we can manage to 25km to 60km, this is all dependent on your bike experience and skill, but we can always change the route and speed as you need. This tour is very customizable for each individual. After the bike ride, I'll take you to one of the best breweries in Auckland, Hallertau Brewery, (http://www.hallertau.co.nz/)or if you prefer NZ wines, we could do a wine tasting at Westbrook Winery with optional BBQ(https://www.westbrook.co.nz/)
I'm Hiro originally from Tokyo,Japan but I've been traveling and working in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand for the last 15 years. People refer to me as a global citizen or Japanse Forest Gump. I have biked for 9000km in Japan from north to south, 9000km Alaska to Los Angles, and 5500km in Patagonia, 150000km for the last 20 years. Cycling has been a passion for me since I was a kid, and I love to teach people the thrill of biking on an open road. Luckily, New Zealand is the perfect place to get out and explore the outdoors with its beautiful landscape.
