Lower North Island and Upper South Island
There’s great riding routes in the middle of the country and we know a website that will help you make the most of it.
There are several great riding routes at the bottom of the North Island and at the top of the South Island.
So much so that there’s a website devoted to them called Ride NZ.
This website offers loads of helpful information for anyone intending to explore either region by motorcycle, including maps, local hazards to be aware of, petrol stations on route, scenic spots and other useful knowledge. Give it a go.
If you’re planning a long ride factor in plenty of breaks, wear full protective gear and take what you might need for the weather, take some water and rehydrate at break stops and allow plenty of time so you enjoy the ride and don’t get rushed.
