Contracting as a designer to Media Unlimited I get to co-design their bi-monthly cycling magazine NZ Bike. The latest issue features an article I wrote, photographed and designed for FreerideNZ mountain bike tours. FreerideNZ run an annual nationwide mountain bike trip encompassing some of New Zealand’s finest off road trails. I was fortunate enough to join the tour as their photographer and had a blast! Pick up a copy of NZ Bike today for the low down on the tour.
I recently joined FreerideNZ for the South Island leg of a Nationwide mountain bike tour. Beginning in Queenstown and finishing in Auckland the tour would showcase some of New Zealand’s world-class all mountain terrain and take in superb scenery along the way. The tour included heli biking, spear fishing, sheep herding, wild venison barbecues, ski field shuttle runs and more.
A big thanks to our amazing guides and Dan McMullan for inviting me on the trip, it was epic!
Also check out Americas biggest mountain bike website Pink Bike for more photos on the tour. Cheers!
Last week I received a call at about 12.30pm to see if i wanted to go and photograph some heli biking at 2pm! There was only one answer and before i knew it i was up in the chopper and heading towards Mt Burke. The scenery up there is stunning and if you have seen the video of Brook McDonald (by Tim Pierce) you will know the terrain is pretty epic. The ride down was breathtaking and a great way to get the adrenaline pumping. A big thanks to Dan at FreerideNZ for hooking up the trip it was an awesome experience! Here are a few pics from the trip…
