    New Zealand in January, any Kiwis want to show me what's what?

    Hey guys! I'm insanely excited about this trip!

    Right now I'm living in China and I'm about to book a ticket to NZ during the spring festival holidays. I'd love to meet up with any of you guys from there and go shred something, there aren't really any trails around here and I'm starting to get some major withdrawals. If anyone has a couch I can crash on that would be amazing and you will be duly compensated in beer and high fives.

    If you can't meet up, I'd still like to hear some recommendations about where to ride and what to do while I'm there. I'll be bringing my Pivot 5.7 with me so I can ride pretty much any kind of stuff you got, maybe not super tech DH runs but whatever.

    My travel dates are tentatively from the 8th to the 22nd of January.

    your travel dates are right in the middle of school and kiwi xmas holidays ... places like nelson, queenstown and hanmer are pretty full and busy around then ... i would look at rotorua or taupo for riding fun around this time ...

    If you make your way down to the South Island, let me know. I am based in Dunedin, but should be up in Central Otago too at some stage.

    Would be happy to show you around.
