Back Road and Gravel Cycling Tours

Bike packing and gravel riding is increasing in popularity around the world. New Zealand back-country roads offer incredibly scenic and remote touring opportunities. Combining unique accommodation and “real” New Zealand, rather than tourist hot-spots, the result is an unforgettable experience.

Back-country and gravel rides involve 50-70 kilometres riding per day per day. We do not have regular contact with towns during this time. Your guide is also you chef, and your mechanic.

Green Jersey helps you get to remote, less traveled places and ensures you are safe, well fed and watered.
