Away stoked to show New Zealand visitor the unique landscape and trails especially our swing bridges which I think are a real focal point for a a lot of out #backcountry trails. This swing bridge is on the #BridgeToNoWhere #Mangapurua trail where there are 4 or 5 really cool deep valley crossings full of ferns 👌. .


Ripping turns as we wind our way down some epic jungle, it was a party on #BillyT - built by the local legend Dodzy. Week one of the NZ tour with @markymath and @nzmtbtours.
