Central North island has excellent mountain biking tracks: Craters of the Moon in Taupo, 42nd Traverse, Fishers Track, Old Coach Road, Mangapurua Valley just to name a few. Check with locals about the conditions of the tracks, in the winter some tracks are unrideable and with the pumice in the soil, you will ruin your brakes! Check weather and be prepared, a lot of these places have limited cell phone coverage and can be in very rural areas so you need to be self sufficient. Definitely bring a head light; it has often come to good use.

For people who like jumps in to lakes, the rocks just before Bulli Point along SH1 between Turangi and Taupo are the one. When heading north, it’s the first of the three 25km corners you get to. Part as close to the side of the road as possible and be careful as there is lots of traffic including massive trucks. Walk just through the bush and you will get to some good big rocks.
