Essentially as it sounds, I will take you out and show you one of the awesome riding locations in the greater Canterbury & West Coast region.

Even if you are grizzled veteran, I can promise you something you haven’t seen before.

Where exactly will depend on the weather and what you have or haven’t done!

The cost will be $30 per person.
$$$ includes guiding, transport and some goodies.

What you need:
A sense of adventure & fun!
Be an intermediate level or experienced rider however we can help you make the transition
A well maintained bike, spares and gear sufficient for a day of riding.
Any medication you require and food/water for the day.
If you don’t have your bike with you, we can help you get an appropriate bike to bring out.

A detailed ride guide and gear list will be sent to registered riders.
