Nydia Track photo epic
The May-June issue of Mountain Bike Australia has just been published with my feature on the Nydia Track and should soon hit news stands in New Zealand. Below are a few shots and stories behind the scenes of this iconic track.
Firstly I would like to thanks the "On the track Lodge" and The Mailboat for making this trip happen
Day 1 Opouri Bridle track
Day 1 started off with a late evening shred down Opouri Bridle track to camp for the night at the mint Harvey Bay camp site, a superb spot.
Day 2 Nydia Track
Zack was on form for this trip and hit a banger turn down on a root feature to start the day off
So the plan for this trip was to ride Nydia Track with Catharine, Zack and Virgina Woolf photographer, over two days. Starting at Duncan Bay and riding through to "On the track Lodge" at Nydia Bay. The second-day we would ride through to Kaiuma Bay to be picked up by "The Mail Boat" which would travel through the scenic Pelorus Sound to Tennyson Inlet back to the start of Nydia track, Duncan Bay.
After pancakes, we started off with checking out the Duncan bay wharf. A sublime, still morning and cracker way to start the day.
The nomad was primed and ready yeoow
"On the track Lodge," a rad place to stay
You can ride this trail with just a day pack making riding this tech track much more enjoyable as the Lodge provides a range of accommodation; from a yurt, chalets and train carriages! They can provide everything you need from meals & drinks to comfortable beds with linen etc.
