The bike with road tyres got the furthest up the creek
Lots of rubber to grip the rocks. Unlike a KLX that just seemed to dig holes...

Oh Nelson New Zealand! I thought it was Nelson, BC. He he, I thought those trees looked a little different. When I was on the South Island a few years back, I was amazed how similar it was to areas of BC. Great place. Wish I had a bike back then, I was mostly climbing in the mountains by Mt Cook. I really liked Nelson and Queenstown.

I'll let the pics tell the story.

That's funny! A friend of mine had started a softball team called the "The Nads". When the league asked them what it means, my friend told them, "Never A Doubt". Got a funny look from the league and they let it slide. Of course when people cheered them on they said, "Go-nads!"

You guys are hardy souls, cool pictures!

Looks like some intense riding....going up the "creek" looked border line....like "jeez what am I doing here?" Y'all meet up the the Soggy Bottom Boys?

The creek was a sump buster all right.
Not literally...

The trees were more fun...
One set of 3 took what? Half an hour to get past?


Must remember to bring pruning saw.
