Riding a road bicycle in the New Zealand countryside is one of our absolute favourite cycling-related activities. The quiet roads, open plains, green grass, the smell of cow shit in rivers and hundreds of sheep quietly waiting to be slaughtered, it’s Kiwi as fuck.

Racing a road bicycle in NZ in 1981 was the real deal, when frames were steel and straight, shoes were black and socks were white, and hairnets and jerseys were only made from the aforementioned cows and sheep. Real men getting the job done, no mamby-pamby gluten free carbon water bottles here, just a Waikato Draught straight from a gumboot and don’t you dare suggest that moustaches are gay.
