Where No Cars Go
A spectacular undertaking but not for the faint hearted. With 70km of gravel road and 1800m of ascent its a long day. Stop at the Granite Wharf at Waitoitoi, enjoy the pohutukawa at Fantail Bay and the views from Fletcher Bay. At Fletchers Bay read the sign Mountain Bike track as meaning pasture. There are two ways to get over to Stony Bay - the easy way and the hard way. The Bridle Track is a massive slog and you'll be doing well if you can ride it all the to 500m summit. The Coastal Track sounds like joy in comparison. Heading home you'll pass through Port Charles and can finally rejoice with Trumpets at the Colville Store after 7 hours of epic scenery.
