Well as I have bronchitis & two lots of antibiotics have failed to shift it so far, I've decided to give it a miss this year

Are you doing it?

If there's not, it'll be a lonely ride for you. Good chance for gold though....

I prefer 4 wheels for the 42. Not fit enough to do it on 2 wheels!

Wish I was, bad knees are interrupting my mtn bikng & cycling at the mo.

See you're from N Yorks, some cracking rides in the the Y Dales & Moors, opportunities around Auckland very disappointing in comparison.

Yes I agree the biking around here isn't as good as the UK although I'm yet to experience Mt biking in Queenstown or the South Island.

Yes I am doing the T42, hopefully the weather will be good.

Out of curiosity, where do you bike in Auckland? Just seems a bit ridiculous, that comparison. Suppose you compare it to the cycling around central Hull.

At the moment I'm biking in the forests around Auckland, Woodhill, Hunua Ranges. I've also been down to the Rotorua forests.
I'm looking at getting down to the Napier Forests sometime in the near future. Whats it like around Taupo can you recommend any routes?

Unfortunately i didn't get the chance to bike in Hull.
I've only been there to go to the aquarium.

If it was 48kms of downhill, I would make the trek.

Haven't biked in the UK but have in NZ but the best is still in BC, Canada.
