Bike (USA) - - Start -

Shoot­ing for the “DreamRide” se­ries has taken our team to some very unique lo­ca­tions the past two years, and the third in­stall­ment was no dif­fer­ent. Spend­ing over a month in New Zealand had our in­trepid crew zigzag­ging over both is­lands, trav­el­ling South to North. In the fi­nal days of the trip, we found our­selves at the Te Paki sand dunes, near the north­ern­most tip of New Zealand. The 10-kilo­me­ter-long and 1-kilo­me­ter-wide strip of desert is a nat­u­ral odd­ity that fit in per­fectly with the pe­cu­liar mind­set for “DreamRide.” We were greeted with driv­ing rain and strong winds, coat­ing our bags and cam­era gear with sand. Work­ing in these con­di­tions was not ideal, but with any project like this, per­se­ver­ance usu­ally pays off. It did so once again in this im­age Mike Hop­kins, one of the only us­able frames in two trips to this spot.
