The Old Ghost Road and Heaphy Track are hot destinations for backcountry cyclists. Damian Stones and Eric Hall recently linked them together in a grand loop over 6 days. Impressive snowfall on the OGR and Eric taking his first tilt at bikepacking added colour and challenge to the journey.
Damian Stones wings his way to the Northern Territories with his trusty Santa Cruz in the hold and favourite mattock in the overhead locker. He regales us with stories of hot-weather trail building, urban cycle ways and bugs that bite.
