Ben Nevis Helibike Sunday 20th OCTOBER

We are running a Ben Nevis Helibike due to interest shown by a number of people. 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 5+ 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 but with enough registrations we hope top keep it at around $95

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.

If you are interested in this ride then please register your interest by registering on this site and opting in to this ride. I will keep you informed of details from then on.

Were you there and have a story to tell?
