 Too smooth! Even the DH one wasn't very rugged.

 You might be a mountain biker if... your van quadruples in value when you put your bikes in it. Go son!

 This video recalls me good memories for sure!
Together with a friend we went there for 5 weeks a couple a months ago. We brought our bikes and rented a van to try the bike parks and discover the country.

Kiwis are probably the friendliest people I ever met plus they have truly outstanding trails.
Rotorua is one of the best, but there are tracks like that all over the country (Wellington, Wanuiomata, Nelson, Crater of the Moon, etc. etc.), quite a mtb paradise out there...

 It's just past the Shire, about twenty clicks down the Rohan pass. If you've hit Mordor, you've gone too far.

 I must be the only one who is thinking those were extremely mellow trails for a DH bike and far too buffed of a trail to be 'mountain' biking.
