THE BEST BACKCOUNTRY GUIDED E-BIKE TOUR

ABOUT THE BIG MOUNTAIN – GUIDED E-BIKE TOUR

Try E-Biking one of NZ’s highest bike tracks.

The feeling of climbing in such remote mountains with the assistance of the E-Bike is literally
indescribable.  As you gain altitude, the terrain and trail is constantly
changing.

This really is backcountry riding at its best!

This incredible backcountry ride is a seasonal activity operating from late Spring through Summer.

Riding on farm tracks this ride is suitable for intermediate riders and a reasonable level of fitness is required.

From the top views can be enjoyed of Lake Hawea, The Southern Alps, The Lindis and more. The very best part is the top is
only halfway!

Enjoy a long descent (on Grade 1-3 trails) down through a picturesque high country station.

This is a biking adventure, with riding that is not overly technical.  Some of the tracks are rutted and loose rocks are frequent.
