Gold Trail MTB Ride 2021

Bike, MTB
Lake Brunner West Coast
From $39 to $79 40km

Gold Trail is an amazing mountain bike race through the history of the West Coast and the Gold Trails that both our ancestors and many Chinese walked, in the search for their riches of the Gold of the West Coast.

Competitors start in the historic Gold Town of Shantytown.

Until the Gold Trail Mountain Bike Ride there had never been a peloton of mountain bike rider’s ride down the Main Street of Shantytown. “This was a first” and it now happens once a year, something to enjoy and experience. Starting to the sound of the Historic Shantytown train.

This is for first time riders to elite riders. Riders experience the untamed beauty of the West Coast of New Zealand. The beauty of the natural creeks, ferns, punga’s, the mighty rimu trees and natural flowing creeks coupled with the forestry roads with plenty of surprises.

If the start in Shantytown doesn’t get to you, then the beauty of Moana and Lake Brunner will as you cross the Arnold River via the swing bridge into Moana, then the Lake front, as you head to the Moana Hotel. What a way to finish with a beer waiting for you!

This 40km mountain bike will touch every rider and provide a chance to experience the untamed West Coast.
