The Half Day Offroad Tour we took was an intensely thrilling ride, with a great tutor and guide in some positively amazing rural areas of New Zealand!

The Experience

Wow, just wow! From the moment we arrived everything was both intense and amazing. The weather was simply gorgeous, and the location in rural Canterbury – Springfield private property – covered a huge range of terrain. We biked through bush, forded streams, road around hills and cliffs, dodged holes, and followed railway tracks along grassy verges.

The terrain was exhilaratingly terrifying for me. Being a novice rider, this was an EXTREME experience.

Grenville was the tutor and guide, and he was helpful, friendly, and a great person to learn from.

We stopped after a while and enjoyed some complimentary snacks and drinks – and a much needed break! On the way back, we all switched bikes to have a go at riding on different sized motorbikes.

Probably one of the most exhilarating, but worth-every-penny activities I’ve ever done. If you want to get out on an offroad bike and ride some amazing terrain, this is the tour for you!
