Review by Dave on 29th July, 2013
5 stars "All the Good Rides in one easy to read guide!"

This book has it pretty much right for the best rides in the country. Lots of good pictures too! Some amusing anecdotes in Mike's typical style. Well worth having in your collection for locals and visitors alike.

Sent it to a friend in the USA – he has ridden some of the routes with me – fantastic choice of NZ roads to ride – a definite must do.

5 stars "Great looking book for the Biker"

Got this book for my Dad. Five minutes after unwrapping I think he already had his first trip planned out. Had a quick look through myself and think it will be an interesting read, definitely recommend.

A Kiwi's guide to the top 50 motorcycle rides in New Zealand

When you find yourself alone on the Molesworth, despite knowing that a 4WD or two will soon happen along, there is a strange sense of isolation and a dawning appreciation that if you suffer a puncture or a mechanical hiccup, then your name had better be MacGyver. Twisting Throttle is back. Exhausted from circumnavigations of Australia and America, Mike Hyde saddles up to explore his own back yard. And what a back yard! TWISTING THROTTLE NEW ZEALAND showcases Mike’s top 50 motorcycle rides in the Land of the Long White Cloud from Ninety Mile Beach to the Catlins. This full-colour travel guide includes a map of each of the 50 main routes and their side routes, as well as route diagrams complete with GPS references and distances between locations. All routes are designed to be ridden inside a day. Whether you’re a Kiwi with a bike in the garage or an overseas visitor renting a motorcycle, this book will show you where the best biking roads are: road touring and adventure rides, North Island and South Island.

About the Author:

The bestselling author of TWISTING THROTTLE AUSTRALIA and TWISTING THROTTLE AMERICA is back in the saddle. Mike Hyde lives in Christchurch. This is his third book. It is possible he has not ridden every road in New Zealand, but we doubt it.
