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.
There were several vehicle break-ins in Marybank/Atawhai overnight Monday/Tuesday (9/10th December). Stolen from Wastney Terrace was a very distinctive "Hoodlam/Sea Shepherd" jacket made especially for Sea Shepherd crew members. It is probably the only one on the South Island and also has a sentimental value. I attach the following photos. If seen being worn please contact the Police or if found telephone 5451103. Thanks.
