Postby stinkyxx on Sun 12/Dec/10 5:01pm

Hi ...
I am heading down to Blenheim for Xmas with the Olds ,are there any new Mtb XC tracks worth riding down there.
I havent ridden any of the trails for 6 years ,use to head up to the Wither Hills Mtb area.
Have they done any work up there??
Any ideas would be good? ..
Thanks

And if you don't have peeps to run the Wakamarina shuttle for you, even just up and back to Fosters Clearing is AWESOME.

does your bike not have a chain or something?? It is a reasonable gradient to ride up!!

I used to do it on my old Giant Faith DH rig, was not made for pedalling uphill under any circumstances
