As part of the Nelson Cycle Fest, I am running a Technical overnight ride up in the Richmond ranges. Start at 10am on Sat 13 oct, we climb up the dun mountain railway, towards Rocks Hut where we stay the night. Next day is a five hour root fest out to the Hacket carpark. This ride is very technical, and involves some pushing, but is very rewarding. Riders will need a good skill level, good fitness, lightweight overnight gear and a reasonable quality bike. Because of the technical nature of the track I prefer flat pedals and knee pads (just saying, not mandatory).Cost is $30 which includes hut fees and transport back to town.

That rider looks to be wearing no shorts and have long ears.
But he knows a good ride when he sees one.

Wow, that looks awesome. :cool:

Pity I'm in the wrong island, and have no MTB. :huh:

Flesh coloured shorts and a back pack worn too high. But he was enjoying that ride for sure.

This is worthy of a *bump* even though I won't be participating myself, it's the sort of adventure I am aspiring to when my skills get there :rolleyes:
