Dirt Biking New Zealand
If there is one place in the world to ride a dirt bike it has to be New Zealand! World’s Greatest Motorcycle Rides and The Motorbike Show presenter Henry Cole has ridden on road for over 30 years but in this brand new series Henry fulfils a lifelong dream to learn how to ride a dirt bike.
As well as riding some of New Zealand’s most beautiful trails Henry explores all facets of what’s on offer in the magical wilderness of New Zealand’s South Island. Henry tries his luck at herding sheep on his KTM, rides around Mount Cook, gets a taste for jet boating and drives the biggest school bus in the world. But as well as motorized adrenaline, Henry goes helibiking getting dropped off by Helicopter to descend a 14 mile mountain trail on a bicycle.
But life on the dirt road is not just about riding; it’s also about the places you stay and the people you meet. Henry relishes the luxury of the best hotels, survives a night in a derelict fishing hut, ends up in a hospital and revels in the vibrancy of Queenstown. And to end his journey of discovery there’s no better place to ride a dirt bike than Oreti Beach in Invercargill: the same beach used by The Fastest Indian Burt Monroe to test his bikes.
