"Tandem Mountain biking" New Zealand Sports & Outdoors Tip by grets

New Zealand Sports & Outdoors: 80 reviews and 101 photos


At Te Anau we hire a tandem. which was an interesting experience. We found it a little difficult initially, but soon got the thythm going. We went along the road down to the lake and on to the golf course, then headed back through the woods. Different! I couldn't see where I was going, sitting at the back. There was one particular fairly steep downhill section which ended in a 3ft wide bridge without a hand rail! Great fun though.

Equipment: Tandem and other mountain bikes can be hired in Te Anau

Theme: Biking

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
