Sticky forest is good but try to nab a local to take you there as its a warren, if you cross the clutha river past albert town going west to the west coast I'm told there is a new loop of single track just over the bridge that follows the lake around to the left- told it was really good. And if you feel like shuttling and like a 1000 meter grade 4 and 5 descent then check out the snow farm, opposite cardrona ski field, series fun downhill, just take some big tyres as I kept blowing me tubes on the rock. You will need someone to drive the car for you- afterwards a beer at the cardona pub at the bottom.

Sticky is indeed good, and +1 to getting local help, you will find fun trails without one, but [as always] better with...

the Dean's Bank track longwalk mentions is great - xc flowy, fun for groups with differing abilities, and is much longer than anything in sticky.

would offer to show you around, but I seem to have moved to welly.

It's the motatapu this weekend. So will be a few bikers around and perhaps a few special things planned through shops to take advantage of increased demand. Drop into shops/look for brochures?
