Just thought a specific thread may work.
Anything up this weekend?
I went up the Wairoa Gorge and did the Boundary Road/Ben Nevis loop yesterday. Scared myself a bit sh1tless when I headed back off a skid site and realised as I started down that I'd just chosen the downhill mountainbike track
Luckily it was short and had no big drop-offs or it could have been interesting
I got right up into the pines to the start of the Ben Nevis Track where it's too steep to ride. Turning around I realised that I do not like riding down a steep hill with wet pineneedles...
Nothing up there the KLR couldn't do fine.
Probably a hour to 2 hours loop from Nelson.
