What Riding Is There In Oamaru?

Postby Outy on Thu 16/Dec/10 8:31pm

Looking for a bit of a heads-up from someone with local knowledge.
In town January on family holiday.
What is there in the way of
a) flat(ish) bike path style or easy singletrack rides suitable for young children <10k
b) singletrack technical rides >10k
Thanks

drive a tiny bit further north, to Waimate. highly recommended is to stop in to The Savoy for the bestest ever Peas Pie and Pud, then hit up the White Horse. you can shuttle it, or just ride up and back. its a good distraction driving north or south too. well worth the detour. Waimate is a cool town, neat old buildings and wicked secondhand shops. and The Savoy... :love: hot waitress too... :love: ;)

find Point Bush Rd, drive to the end, its only a couple kms out of town... its in the Kennett's book.

The capes good for a play.Easy to find and plenty of good tracks for all abilitiys.
Also have just built a pump track were the old bmx track was could be worth a look.

Thanks for all the tips.
Will probably call into Waimate as a former workmate runs Havoc Farm, producing organic free-range pork, and is overdue a visit from me.
Will have to pass on the hot waitress, unless I can lose the wife and kid! :sly:
