    Cycle Touring: Ocean to Alps – a 5 Day Self Sufficient Ride

    By

    Together with our friends, Alice and Jeremy we organised to spend our Christmas holiday completing the Alps to Ocean in reverse. Predominately as we had heard the views were better and it would be slightly more challenging going uphill. The Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail is New Zealand in all its colour and beauty – from our highest mountains, past great lakes and rivers, and down to the ocean. Suitable for all ages, the 9 section bike trail is an easy to intermediate grade, linking the Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean.

    Cycle Touring: SOMA Smoothie, a Buena Vista on Route 52

    By

    As everyday riders, our goal was to build new bikes that would meet the requirements of our daily commute while allowing us to take the same bike on adventures across the country. Our commuting requirements were bikes with relaxed geometries for when we saunter past the shops and through the parks. Mounts to take a front or rear carrier for transporting everyday goods and fenders for the wet. For our adventures, we needed bikes that would ride well with additional load and felt stable yet responsive with enough gears to handle more challenging or hilly terrain.
