On the day after the Milk and Honey Race (Monday 27 October) we are organising a helibike up the Kill Devil Track. The Kill Devil is a grade 4/5 track that descends 1000m from the drop site near Riordans Hut. There's a fair bit of up too..... and you have the option of dropping down to Waingaro Forks Hut first (awesome) but you'll need to pedal back out.
Whatever way you go, the Kill Deveil is one the great backcountry rides in NZ. You'll need to be prepped for a big day out, be self sufficient and ride with some mates. It's rocky terrain and can be pretty harsh on bikes and bodies.
