Anka Martin & Friends Shredding Nelson, New Zealand

Our trip went down in early February in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand, and the surrounding areas of the Nelson Tasman district. We planned a little backcountry adventure with a few of my friends on our Juliana bikes. We rode sick tracks, and ended big days with beers & delicious food. Perfection. Bliss. After a few days of NZ backcountry at its best, we were exhausted, exhilarated and knackered. And, we were content. Happy, satisfied, and loving our lives. This is what life is all about. This is living. These are the memories that you create with your friends and the moments that will keep you going until the next adventure. Thank goodness for bikes. –Anka Martin
