We just stayed at Seddonville with a couple of retired women who had recently biked it and they loved it :) They were pretty excited about the whole project.

Looks like they have made a less edgy track across the earthquake slips

Took AJ and I, 7 hours return to the saddle going pretty quickly. Always a good work out on the way up. Will be keen to do it when I return to NZ in August for a visit.

Jonathan Kennett and Murray Drake rode up there in 5 hours last week and stayed the night before biking back down. But it is still a work site, so avoid hassling the Ghost Road team. The track will not be properly finished to the Saddle until late May.
