Lonely Planet Epic Rides
In this beautifully illustrated Lonely Planet book, we write about two of the world’s greatest biking adventures, located right here in New Zealand.
Released in August 2016, Epic Rides features 200 thrilling, two-wheeled escapades from all around the globe. As well as easy-going family jaunts and urban sightseeing rides, there are wilderness adventures from cruisy to hardcore.
Fifty of the best rides are described in first-hand stories complete with excellent photography, maps and practical information on how to do the ride. Two of New Zealand’s (and the world’s) finest rides are included – the super-scenic Alps2Ocean that takes bikers from the foot of Aoraki/Mt Cook to the Pacific Ocean, and the Old Ghost Road, the ultimate off-the-beaten-track, multi-day mountain biking epic on the West Coast.
