Hi I am a little new here, while I joined several months ago, I am mostly a lurker and have posted only a few times.

I ride a 05 XTC2 and am currently building up a trail/freeride bike up

I live in Wellington which is one of the best places to be for Mountainbiking in New Zealand. Wellington City also the capital of New Zealand is surrounded by hills and because I this there are a very large amount of trails to ride.

If you are interested in checking out the sort of trails we have in New Zealand check out this link http://www.vorb.org.nz/modules.php?name ... =top_rated all are video clips and are under 8mbs, most are from tracks around New Zealand.

hi,

My wife is kiwi, and we are planning to move to NZ in the (not so near) future. We currently live in London.

We are going to end up in Auckland - do you know how is the MTB scene there?

I had a friend that was kiwi and her family moved from Auckland to London. Small world

I'm from the UK - lived in Auckland for 4 years and could't wait to get back! :shock:

try woodhill (half an hour north of Auckland) - great forest trails up there:

Somehow VERT introduced himself in 2005, but no one replied back then... until 2013.

Maybe you've already ridden with him and don't know it yet! :shock: :D

You are quite right! Ha, shows how observant I am sometimes.
