Ben Nevis Helibike II - 17 November

We are running a second Ben Nevis Helibike due to the interest shown after our first one. We get dropped off at the top of Ben Nevis and ride back down to the Wairoa Gorge including the Downhill tracks at the bottom to finish off. This is a grade 4+ ride that involves a bit of carrying and scrabbling in the middle section, but some great views and fantastic riding make it well worth the effort.

Cost depends on numbers so if you are interested I need to know to what level of finance you are willing to go and we will book the helicopter depending on how this works out. For one load of 6 the cost is $135 each for two loads 6 the cost is $120 each for Three loads of 6 the cost is $110 each and for Four loads of 6 or more its $90 each. So if you are only willing to pay the $90 and we don't get 24 then you miss out. or if you want to go regardless commit to the $135 and if we get more it will cost less. Hope that makes sense

A video of the last one can be found on youtube at the link below. that will give you an idea of what the riding is like.
