Story of my life but I have been a bit slack on posting some updates but as usual the day job has been getting in the way of fun! We have finally got some snow down here in the southern hemisphere, after a very low tide July.. Here are a couple of snaps from a day out at Mt Olympus.
And here is a little article on the new Canyon Spectral written by Simon Makker of Makkreative that was in the latest Spoke Magazine that features a couple of my photos – the ones of Makker riding the bike.
I forget over summer just how windy it is in Canterbury, and man has it been awesomely calm lately, which means the riding has been sensational. Here is some imagery of the last little while, mostly from some alpine hike a bike missions.
To start off, due to the weird winter there hasn’t been that much snow around but the riding has been sensational and with the 3rd base trail at Christchurch Adventure Park getting a recent revamp Brent and I teamed up to film a little insta edit for them, check it out below:
We did however manage to get out for the days that Ullr delivered and we actually received some snow, which were few and far between and in typical New Zealand fashion you had to work hard for to get, check out a little gallery of the winter below.
And last but not least as the dirt has been epic throughout the winter check out a little bike gallery below:
The ski season here in in NZ, specifically Canterbury has not started with a bang. We have however managed to get out for a few days in some variable early season conditions, couple of snaps from those early missions below. Either time to head further south where thew snow is looking better or keep up the snow dancing and hope for some freshies.
Also a quick POV video of possibly my favourite MTB track from a few weeks back before we had any snow at all!
Well 2020 its been a weird one, between pandemics, lockdowns, work and family I haven’t really managed to get out and do anything adventurous. So I thought I would least get a post up and add a few photos that I have managed to take over the last few months. A quick post lockdown mission to Craigieburn and ChCh Adventure park before the weather cancelled riding for the season. And a couple of shots from earlier in the year at Skyline in Queenstown. So many tables haha!
