Hi! I am currently in Queenstown riding with a buddy, and trying to make travel/riding plans the rest of our trip (March 8 through Mar 14). We're debating a trip from Queenstown, through Wanaka, along the west coast, possibly Nelson, and ending in Christchurch where we fly out. Could you guys help us prioritize areas/trails we should spend time at? Maybe possible driving routes we could take if we decide nelson adds too much drive time?
Our ideas so far:
-Wanaka: Deans Bank? Glendhu Bay? Others?
-Alexandra? It's a bit out of the way, should we bother?
-West coast: Info is scarce. Old Ghost road? Other ideas?
-Nelson: Coppermine? It seems theres plenty of riding here, but the big drive to here may be too far to make it worth it. Is there a trail here that is better than everything else that makes the extra drive worth it? Or is it good enough that we skip most along the way and drive straight from Q-town to nelson (and maybe ferry up to Wellingon?)
-Christchurch: Seems lots of trails, but can't decipher which are best. Is the drive west to Craggieburns worth it?
-Is it worth stopping at Fox Glacier or Punakaiki along the way to sight see?
Cheers and ride on!
