Te Aroha – The Silent Film

5 0 1881

I got to go up a little known local bit of singletrack with a few of the boys today and put this together.

The trail is called Gum Ta Native, in the bush behind the town of Te Aroha, New Zealand.

It was all hand built by one man (who is actually in jail now – oops), including all of the bridges, rock work, and terracing, over the course of about 10 years. There is no fancy editing, no slo-mo, no music, just the sounds of the forest, bikes, and a bit of fun thrown in. Sometimes the simplest things are the best!
