      Classic NZ Cyvle Trails review.

      I haven't had a chance to read Classic NZ Cycle Trails yet! I bought it as an early Christmas present for my husband. Since then he's read it from cover to cover and has now temporarily lent it to a friend.... I guess that's the sign of a good book!!

      Makes me want to head to NZ now.

      I bought this book as a Christmas present for the missus - terrible aren't I? We have done a couple of rides in NZ and loved it so I was keen to see what else was available. This book is a great resource whether you are planning a trip or just want to spend a bit of time dreaming about rides to come. More good stuff from Ground Effect. (I think the missus liked it too.)

      Inspiring read

      I have enjoyed a couple of cycle tours in NZ mostly on sealed roads so bought this book to expand my experience of this great country with some off-road trips. The book is full of trip suggestions with lots of useful information which will help in my planning such as trail difficulty, distances expected times and most important gradients! Also a stack of other information on getting to the rides, where to stay, bike hire etc. There are maps and trail descriptions though whether they have enough detail to easily follow the trails I wont know until I get there. In summary an inspiring little book packed with relevant information.
