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.
