Prepare to experience Auckland's urban scenery and the wild Waitakere Ranges! Our first destination will be the top of Mt. Eden, our most picturesque volcano with views over the entire city and the Ranges in the distance. After a brief ride out of the city, we'll ascend the Waitaks and make a few scenic stops to experience classic NZ bush. I'll take you up a narrow little-known path to the highest lookout in the ranges with views over the entire region, before a thrilling descent and a well earned coffee. After heading back to the city on a separated cycle path along the estuary, we'll finish off with a cruise down our iconic pink Lightpath, high above the motorway. For your convenience, I'll meet you at your accommodation with your bike rental. *Please note this Experience is designed for cyclists who are up for a physical challenge. You must be comfortable in traffic and on a road bike with drop handlebars . The route is 65km with 1500m of climbing (it's hilly!). If you want a leisurely sightseeing cruise of the city, this is not for you. If you're up for an awesome adventure in the rainforest full of long climbs, epic views, and exhilarating descents: game on!
The streets of Auckland inspired me to buy my first road bike 10 years ago: it's such a fun city to ride in, and also such an easy city to escape from. I love Auckland, I love meeting new people, and I love riding - combining all three is the best! I currently race and chase my youth with Webscope, an amateur masters cycling team. When not riding I'm probably busy with my real job: playing french horn with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

Missä tulette olemaan
The best way to experience Auckland is by bike. I've carefully curated a route which first takes in the urban sights and shows off our recent boom in cycling infrastructure, and then shows off our famous jungle climbs of the Waitakere Ranges. Along the way, I'll take you to all the best coffee shops and selfie stops.
