Lately, I have been thinking/planning of doing a work holiday down under, in New Zealand. I'm aiming to go there in mid-January, which should be in the middle of summer over there. One of the reasons I chose New Zealand is because of the awesome riding I've been hearing/reading about. From what I've read, Rotorua is an awesome town with trails that are very accessible. I also know that Queenstown has lift access DH. Since riding is the main motivation for me going over there, I have a few questions about the riding... Is it worth it for me to bring a DH bike over? Bromont is my home mountain, so my expectations are kind of high in regards to DH... If not, would a XC/AM bike be a better choice? Which town/city has the best riding that is easily accessible without a car preferably?
