Riding in New Zealand ?

Are there any Kiwis out there who can fill me in on the off-road scene in NZ? We're thinking South island maybe Canterbury but nothings definite.

The riding is great on South Island. I didn't spend any time riding on North Island but the photos in Dirt Rider look good.
When in doubt take a holiday in NZ rent a bike and check it out.

This summer I sold a bike to a gal from New Zealand that summers in this area. She rides alot there in the Queensland area. My son and I took her out one day so she could see the trails we ride. It was about 75-80 degrees. She was exhausted after 25 miles, said she had never ridden in weather that hot. Where she rides they go up into the mountains and temp is usually 60-70 degrees. Wouldn't that be great.
