Heaphy Mountain Biking Trial Off to a Good Start

Submitted by Rick Lucas on Sun, 15/05/2011 - 1:00am

It’s been two weeks since mountain bikers started coming off the Heaphy Track and into our community. Early feedback suggests that all is going well and that the bikers are enjoying their time here. A few days ago two bikers limped into Karamea with mechanical problems, unfixable locally. But, Information Centre staff to the rescue! Sam photocopied the broken parts and faxed them to Habitat Sports in Westport. Dulcie was making a trip to Westport that day and picked up the identified parts needed. The bikers were so pleased that their bikes were operational they decided to return to Golden Bay by pedaling back across the Heaphy! Now that’s what I call ‘bike friendly’ service!
