Mākū – New Zealand Gravel Bike Film

In November 2019 Damian Stones and Mike Anderson set off to the Marlborough Sounds across the top of the South Island in search of challenging trails on their gravel bikes. The weather forecast was less than ideal but due to time restrictions they decided to commit to this journey with the idea that, ‘surely, it can’t be that bad.’ This film was aptly named Mākū due to the adverse weather these riders faced during this 4-day adventure.

Big thanks to Shimano for the flawless Dura-ace, Ultegra and Pro components, and to keep things rolling, the GRX 650b wheelset.

Special thanks to Hyperformance Hardware for supplying the standout Santa Cruz Bicycles Stigmata.

Team: Damian Stones – rider / logistics / videographer

Mike Anderson – rider / owner My Ride Richmond

I hope you enjoy this short film and it may help with future plans.
