The Grand Loop Film

The top of the South Island of New Zealand has rapidly become a destination for backcountry cyclists. Like all good ideas, this one, to ride the Old Ghost Road and Heaphy Track in one grand loop, was thrown about over a few beers in a bike shop in Richmond, Nelson. Two riders, Damian Stones and Erik Hall completed this 6-day adventure in mid-winter on gravel bikes. Recent snowfalls, and a first bike packing trip for Erik, made this journey all the more challenging.

Recently I had a blast touring the back roads and trails of the Nelson region. I was blown away by the versatility of the bike and how fun it was to ride whether on gravel roads or Kaiteriteri MTB Park single track.
