Yet another incredible ride in the Whakarewarewa Forest. This ride can be ridden as a cross country route or if you are riding the shuttles you can easily just ride the descent. This is a super long incredibly flowy descent that will have you wanting to ride it again and again... yes it's that good.

Thanks to Bike Culture for helping to build this route.
