Alps 2 Ocean (A2O) Cycle Trail
New Zealand - February 2019

Amazing 320km mountain bike adventure in New Zealand from Aoraki/Mt Cook to Oamaru with Vertical Ventures/Cycle Ventures providing the best food, accommodation, guidance and support thanks to superstar host Rob who really made our experience so enjoyable. A fully immersive experience by bike, helicopter and glider flights to soak in every bit of the stunning scenery at every turn.

I'm very happy how the video turned out considering the many risks I took riding one handed, so please turn on your sound and check it out!
