Woodhill Mountain Bike Park
New Zealand is home to some of the world’s best mountain biking. While the finest is found three hours south in Rotorua, there's a similar forestry setup at Woodhill Bike Park, just 40 minutes west of Auckland. There are more than 50 tracks in this adventure playground, and for the nominal fee of a $10 day pass, you can have as much fun as your legs and lungs can take. There are single tracks for everyone from beginners to advanced, plus night riding on Wednesdays when the park stays open until 10pm. Handle the Jandal and Acquired Taste are just a couple of the quirky names given to the at times fast, flowy, technical, and breathtakingly uphill tracks. There’s bike hire, a shop, mechanic, and great coffee at the venue as well.
