Author(s): Mike Hyde
When you find yourself alone on the Molesworth, despite knowing that a 4WD or two will soon happen along, there is a strange sense of isolation and a dawning appreciation that if you suffer a puncture or a mechanical hiccup, then your name had better be MacGyver. Twisting Throttle is back. Exhausted from circumnavigations of Australia and America, Mike Hyde saddles up to explore his own back yard. And what a back yard! Twisting Throttle New Zealand showcases Mike’s top 50 motorcycle rides in the Land of the Long White Cloud from Ninety Mile Beach to the Catlins. Whether you’re a Kiwi with a bike in the garage or an overseas visitor renting a motorcycle, this book will show you where the best biking roads are: road touring and adventure rides, North Island and South Island. Mike Hyde lives in Christchurch.
