TOUR DE 

GRAVITY

6-12 DAYS

Mountain bikers love gravity, nothing is better than shredding a trail on an enduro rig or your big bike with a bunch of your riding buddies hollering beside you as you descend an epic trail.

 

New Zealand mountain biking has world class downhill trails that we ride via gondola, shuttles and heli-biking 

 

Combine NZ’s awesome trails with scenery that will blow your socks off then finish with award winning wines and beers, we really do have it all in the country we call Godsown!

The Itinerary

DAY 1 & 2

Fly into Auckland, meet and greet then make our bikes 

Head to FourForty bike for a day of private enduro shuttles

Grab a quick cold one then in the van to Rotorua, home of Crankworx

A day on Skyline hammering the DH trails and maybe the Crankworx DH course

A second ride in the forest with a private shuttle if the arms can take it

Chill out and soak natural hotpool with a cold one

DAY 3 & 4

Day 3

Fly to Christchurch,  then hit the newest park in NZ for a day of DH laps

Out on the town in Christchurch for a top pub meal and a few cold ones

 

Day 4

Drive to Queenstown via a ski field for a few laps and ride the world famous trails of Coronet Peak for an afternoon of shuttles

Off to our private bike lodge, nestled in the mountains for a Kiwi BBQ and chilled out night

 

Day 5

Skyline bike park, what can we say? Technically challenging for novices to pro riders. Theres a reason why the pros make this park their home in the off season. You are guaranteed to rub shoulders with a world cup downhiller in the gondie or on the trails

DAY 6 & 7

Day 6

Another day up Skyline of we can head up the alpine ski field of Cardrona, home of the NZ DH finals for a day of gondola rides with some of the best alpine scenery you'll ever see

 

Day 7

Pack up the rigs and head for home form Queenstown Airport (hopefully in one piece) with a smile that you cant wipe off your mug!

"I rode the Alpine South with Scott and had the time of my life. I’ve ridden in Europe, the UK and the USA but even as a Kiwi I was blown away at the single track he showed me and the epic times on and off the bike. Cheers!”

Your Accomodation

  • When ever you travel with JustMTB your time off the bike is just as important

  • If you join a tour with other people then you will stay in lovely NZ accomodation with a twin share or double. A single supplement is available

  • If you book a private tour with a bunch of mates then you decide on where you would like to stay and the level of spend.

  • Some of your groups are happy with a back packer while others prefer a 6 star lodge. Either way JustMTB will make sure your digs are perfect for the group 

Your Guide

  • Rod aka "the rodfather" is an ex NZ downhiller and current age group enduro pro. He’s no spring chicken but he sure can ride a trail.

  • Not only a top rider, but a bike mechanic by trade, Rod will tune your bike and use a Shockwiz to get the suspension perfect. Rod's our man up north and will meet you in Auckland and get you to Christchurch where Scott takes over 

  • Scott, aka the bike dad, is also an ex downhiller, who rode for Team Specialized back in the day and now spends his days picking up his 3 x boys as they drop down Queenstown's gnarliest trails.

  • He will keep you rolling and loves to share his local know how on where to get the south's best eats and coffee. He's also a bit of a foodie so will take you to the best pubs, restaurants and vineyards after the days trails.
