Riding the Old Ghost Road

By Connie Ceuppens

Customers Matt and his son, Archie took off to ride NZ's Old Ghost Road, here's what they had to say...

Kia Ora,

How are you? Please find photos attached of my trip to ride Old Ghost Road, with my 14yr old son. My son would love to see this up on the site! 

Old Ghost Road is 85km cycle/walking track that crosses some very remote South Island mountains and follows parts of an old mining trail. We rode it as a 2 day, 1 night option. Its listed in Lonely Planets Epic Bike Rides of World and is certainly worthy of the recognition.

Kind regards,

Matt

Thanks for sharing Matt, it looks like you had a great trip, with some spectacular scenery!
