Around the Viaduct Harbour.
Lots of stair gaps, skinnies (along ledges and whatnot) and small drops. OK for taking it easy or trials stuff I guess.
What out for Prada wearing pedestrians, I'm sure they wouldn't hesitate to call their personal bodygaurds or throw their Cappucino in your face if you get in their way. :)

Start at the tank farm and work your way round the waterfront till you get to where all the bars are at (make sure you check out all the little courtyards and ramps around the buildings. Have a beer.

We need more trails in Auckland City!!!! Wellington is kicking our ass for urban trails and I for one am not happy about it!

It is Auckland, but you can find a mountain a minute away, if you survive the traffic.

I've ridden most of the above, plus Mt Roskill, volcanic base so they are fine in the pi$$ing rain, even after dark if you dare, depends on the neighborhood you might say.

Customer Service

Get away from arterial vehicle roads as quickly as possible, if you want to make it onto the trail unscathed.

Ride with an eye to walkers as Auckland is densely populated and the volcanoes are well visited.

Must use imagination, but a good improvised ride is possible.

Mt Eden can be steep in parts if you don't choose your route carefully. Also One Tree Hill no longer allows m'bikers on the grass bits because of the historic Maori sites. The ride can be as easy or as hard as you want it. Therefore Beginner to Intermediate rating. I give it 4 stars because it always works for me!

Customer Service

As described but the other way around also including Mt Hobson and the Auckland Museum domain and Teachers Training College (heaps of steps, drops and lumps)
