MTB-Buddies - Killdevil Helibike - Labour Monday 28th October

Helibike Nelson in conjunction with the MTB-Buddies are running a Killdevil Helibike on Monday the 28th of October 2019

The Killdevil IS a grade 4-5 track requiring a good level of technical skills and a suitable full suspension bike, Knee and elbow pads are also recommended. Please do not opt in for this trip if you are not up to riding this level of track. Walkers and Runners are also welcome to use this service.

There are two options for this trip.

The longer option is to ride down through the native Beach forest to the historic Waingaro Forks hut and then ride back up to the start point, before riding out along the ridge line and down the numerous switchbacks to the end. This normally takes about 5.5-6.5 hours

The shorter option is to just ride out along the ridge line and down the switchbacks, this takes about 1.5-2.5 hours.

Pricing for the Helibike is now $170, we have had to increase our prices to include higher running costs, and the inclusion of the DOC Landing / user fees of $20 per person. PLEASE NOTE you are ONLY paying for the lift up, nothing else is provided so you will need to be prepared to look after yourself. We are also offering a long scenic flight from Nelson right across Tasman Bay and the Kahurangi National Park for $240 (great birthday present), but there are only a couple of those seats
