Christchurch Adventure Park

Uphill up, then take your pick of the amount of gnar you feel like on the way down.

meh on the park.
Head out to Sumner. Ride up Captain Thomas, then up Summit Rd to Broadleaf Lane, ride to top of this, turn left and head down the track by the tower, all the way back down to Evans Pass. From here, head out Godley Head track (above the road) to the end. Then from Breeze Col, down Anaconda, and either ride back over to Sumner via Scarborough, or ride back up Anaconda, back up Godley track and back down Captain Thomas. or any combination of these...

(bunch of other trails all around this area, but i cant describe them easily, so have provided description via landmarks.)

Park at the Adventure park. Roadie around the bottom of the hills to Rapaki, up there then turn right over Mt Vernon/traverse/thompsons, up past the kiwi to top of Marleys then either turn right for Nun/Old Dyers/Loess or down bodybag into the park proper. That will give you a hill, some cruisy XC and if needed some gnar to finish with the added bonus of beer and nuggs at the bottom !

I'd contend that beer and nuggs would be better got from Twisted Hop, if having ridden my suggestion, or Moon Under Water if ridden yours... ☺️
