What an unbelievable trip! Chappie has pretty much said it all in previous posts - but to me he said it best after a blinding run down Hot X Buns - "I feel 10 feet tall and bullet proof!" We were riding like men possessed, clocking up tons of great memories squeezing 5 sessions into only 73 hours in NZ's finest - leaving just enough strength to get our battered steeds on and off the plane.
All these stories of single track perfection in NZ are giving me the sh1ts, so Lucky Phil and I made a run past the Boulder Bay sewerage works today. (Just joking Chapstick, the stories are great - keep them coming).
I used the opportunity to try EveryTrail on the iPhone - http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=980712&code=018f51b78aef...
What a day! I can’t remember ever feeling so physically tired. But I need to start from the start..
This morning commenced with a frantic call to Jeff at Kiwi Bikes – as recommended by Steve the world’s most accommodating owner of Alpin apartments where we’re staying – to try to find a replacement stem for Chapstik’s bike. The conversation went something like this:
Jeff: Hello Jeff speaking.
until Chappie and I hit Rotorua and the Whakarewarewa Forest! Check out the insane video of the trail "Little Red Riding Huck", this one is on the to-do list!!!

I know it’s normally meant for walking but I don’t think you should let
that put you off:
While there I also recommend watching
