Okuku Valley - North Canterbury
by George Homan
From Rangiora, head towards and through Loburn, and follow road through to Okuku pass. You can part just after the narrow wooden bridge and ride over the pass, or drive over. Heaps of open and hilly terrain, one of the best places in NZ to ride.
- That looks amazing George. The only time I've spent in the snow down South is while snowboarding. I love that backdrop and spectacular scenerey that is unique to good 'ol New Zealand.
Questions: How do your bikes handle the snow and cold temperatures? Do you have to make any modifications to them? I imagine you'd benefit from some butty 'sand/mud' tires to get through the deep stuff.
Cheers for the pics - they're impressive.
