Anyone with an eMTB (electric mountain-bike) want to do the Queen Charlotte Trail before December 1st?
The plan is falling into place!
Friday 29 Nov – Drive to Picton and stay in cheap backpackers or other suitable accommodation.
Saturday 30 Nov – Take an early ferry (or water taxi) to Ship Cove and Bike to Portage – 50K
We’ve rented a cool place through Book a Bach that sleeps 4. There’s only two beds but there is space on the couch or floor for a reduced rate. 🙂
Sunday Dec 1 – Bike to Picton: 20K to Anakiwa (on QC Trail) and 20K (on road)
Drive back to Nelson in the afternoon
There is an opportunity to do a little more trail riding on the way from Anakiwa to Picton, depending on how much energy everyone has.
Have you seen Patsy? Missing since Friday morning from Vanguard Street. 2 year old female long haired tabby, little on the plumper side. Can appear quite timid, but more sassy than shy. Can you please check your garages and sheds. We are starting to worry about her and really miss her!
Following discussion at its recent Environment Committee meeting about boat launching at Delaware /Wakapuaka Estuary, Nelson City Council will seek further information and talk to iwi partners and the community. The matter will return to the Committee on 5 March 2020.
Are you a regular user of the estuary for fishing or maritime activities? If so, will you continue to use the area as per normal over summer and has there been an increase in compliance measures in recent weeks?
