Lonely Planet Epic Rides

In this beautifully illustrated Lonely Planet book, we write about two of the world’s greatest biking adventures, located right here in New Zealand.

Epic-Bike-Rides-of-The-World-coverReleased in August 2016, Epic Rides features 200 thrilling, two-wheeled escapades from all around the globe. As well as easy-going family jaunts and urban sightseeing rides, there are wilderness adventures from cruisy to hardcore.

Fifty of the best rides are described in first-hand stories complete with excellent photography, maps and practical information on how to do the ride. Two of New Zealand’s (and the world’s) finest rides are included – the super-scenic Alps2Ocean that takes bikers from the foot of Aoraki/Mt Cook to the Pacific Ocean, and the Old Ghost Road, the ultimate off-the-beaten-track, multi-day mountain biking epic on the West Coast.
