Old Ghost Road - riders wanted!

Looking for a few additional riding mates (3) for a 1 week supported tour of some of the best single in the South Island. Highlight would be riding the entire length of the Old Ghost Rd - 82kms of sweet single track. Lots more single track including St James, Blue Spur, Craigieburn, Hanmer Springs (hot springs) this would be a 1 week trip with start/finish in Christchurch. Approx costs are ~$2000 for the fully supported tour + airfare to NZ + walking around money. Due to lead times, accomodation availability in huts along the OGR, etc the exact dates aren't clear but would need to confirm interest in the next week or so to pull this together
Please PM if interested.

Depends on timing around work commitments and a couple of other priorities, but it sounds great

hi John, one of the major factors is the availability of bunks in the huts along the OGR, with the weather warming up over the next few months the bookings are filling up very quickly hence the need to try and nail this down fairly quickly, trip dates will revolve around this. Eye-wink

I'm unavailable from tomorrow to 22 October, and from 1 January to when results go out mid-Feb.

Work would probably be happy for me to take another week off other than those dates to get my leave down.
