XC: Wakamarina And Nydia Dec 30 And 31

Postby inzane on Mon 11/Dec/06 10:38am

Going to ride these just before New Years.

Plan at moment is
30th Dec Wakamarina
31st Dec Nydia bay

Throw me a pm if up that way and keen. Both trails require good fitness (4 to 7 hours biking each day), good skills and self sufficiency as they are a long walk if something goes wrong in the middle, but are great trails to ride. Also require some organising of shuttle from one end to the other.

Might ride Barron flat on the 1st, depending what is happening.

urrgh. I'd be dead keen, but I've got to work in the afternoons both days. :(
I might be able to help out with transport if you need it.

Sweet.

Not sure how many of us there will be. Likely that there are going to be 5 of us so far... will have to work out car shuttling stuff (unless we find some willing drivers).

Both are great rides. The descent from the top of the Wakamarina is a fantastic piece of singletrack!!

Looks like it will be the Wakamarina on the 30th for me. (though I'd sorely love to get back on the Nydia track).
Will be driving from Nelson if anyone wants to get together.

I suppose I should stir up some lazy locals too.

I am likely to be heading across from Nelson too. Could probably hook up.

Hey, couple of other questions about Nelson riding that you might be able to help on here

also have been talking to Andy01 and he seems to think that starting from the Maungatapu saddle that it would take about 3 to 3.5 hours to ride the Dew Lakes/Rush Pool track. Would that be about right??

Coming over with my mate corky on the 9pm ferry on Dec 29th.
Will be bringing a toyota master ace van with a bike capacity of 4 - 5 bikes.

(We will have a bike each so will have room for 2-3 more..)

Will be heavily armed with beers in exchange for advice on which trails to ride in our time on the road before we get the ferry back to welly on the 12th..

Where and what time to meet on the 30th?

Corky has the details. Have said 9.30am at the Trout Hotel in Canvastown. Can organise shuttle etc from there.

Probably same sort of deal for riding Nydia bay... Can organise shuttle from the Trout for that one too...

yes the ride is still on. I'm not sure on numbers, but I think there's a few from here and there. Meeting at the Trout Hotel Canvastown 9:30am is still what I'm planning for.
3 of us going from Nelson (+ inzane)- meeting at my place 8am to sort transport to canvastown.
I txt you mike.
