Most Epic Ride?
A few summers ago I heard someone talk of a ride off the back of Coronet Peak (a local mountain/ski area) - with full exploration of the backcountry into Skippers Canyon. I Convinced my mates Stew and Jarna to join me and set off. Unfortunately, I got the directions wrong and it ended up being a 10 hour hike/ride a bike up & down cliffs on goat tracks & through tussock.
Finished the ride in the dark with one flashing rear red light to guide 3 of us down the only fun bit of singletrack all day and then a pedal out of Skippers canyon With a flat front tyre. Afterwards found out the people before us had done it on moto's which is why it took them 4 hours (plus they went the right way). Lesson learned!
