Berm Bros – Episode 1 – Deep In The Forest
Every man and his dog seems to be heading to New Zealand at the moment, we keep getting ‘out of office’ emails with some cocky response about flying to the southern hemisphere, not that we are jealous… The Berm Bros. are here with a series of films about the riding in and around Rotorua, the first edition taking in the Hatupatu, Billy T and the Huckleberry Hound, the last one looks a whole heap of fun. Here’s the word from Nick Stevenson at Cadre Productions that are putting the series together.
In the debut Berm Bro’s Episode, our local Rotorua hosts Matt Walker and Keegan Wright set out to show us some of the incredible mountain bike trails and local riding secrets Rotorua has to offer and the lead up to Crankworx Rotorua 2015. We start the series off in the undisputed ‘godfather’ of New Zealand mountain biking, the Whakarewarewa forest in Rotorua with over 100km’s of trails. Meeting up with Jeff Carter the crew do some private shuttle runs with Southstar Shuttles on some of the classic downhill trails and singletrack from the higher elevations of the forest. To finish off the day the boys head to Polynesian Spa to soak up the thermal waters after a big day’s riding. Just another day in mountainbike paradise.
