The Man Behind New Zealand Adventure Riders

"Thanks for visiting New Zealand Adventure Riders! This website has been created to share my knowledge of adventure riding in New Zealand and provide an information hub for adventure riders alike. Aside from a life on motorbikes growing up as a kid, for nearly a decade I have been adventure riding the South Island and GPS logging hundreds of routes to share with the New Zealand adventure riding community through the RemoteMoto website.

While RemoteMoto is focused primarily on New Zealand adventure routes, this New Zealand Adventure Riders website fills the gaps and provides a wide range of preparation, setup and planning information for anyone interested in adventure riding in New Zealand.

If you ever see me out and about of the trails feel free to wave me down for a chinwag, I always enjoy meeting new riders!

Cheers, Josh"
