For The Irishman Riding The Fatty... Thanks

Postby Vaughan308 on Tue 8/Jan/13 1:25pm

i was recently in Wellington and spent some time up the hills getting blown around, after becoming sick of it i headed up to Mt Vic to check out some tracks where we stumbled across a man riding his fatty who directed us to Transient which was excellent.

so to the Irishman who wants to chase antilope thank you very much for the freindly chat and the local advise. and to those that havent ridden Transient i recommended it (Aro Street) and look forward to my next visit up your way.

Yes, transient to tip track and back is a regional treasure.

Always nice to read positive feedback

Yep

We have further ideas..... one being why should the track stop at the top of Barking Emu. We've probably got 3 years digging ahead but we would be keen after that to extend the track from BE south round the slope and up to the pinetrees on the road south of the white dome. There would be a few rockbluffs but hopefully some good flow. Great views from there and the top of the hill.

It's true. Going round to the other side of Hawkins Hill (towards Te Kopahou) gives a totally different view (and invites one to head down to the coast via the gun emplacements).

Thread hijack!! Thanks for the nice words Vaughan308.

Not sure a trail up from BE past the golfball will have huge amounts of flow, more subalpine/exposed ruggedness (hopefully) like the southern end of BE.

Name is booked, all we need to do is build the other trails first...
