Gold Trail

Sunday 3rd February 2019

  • 40km Mountain Bike Ride

Shantytown to Moana (Lake Brunner). "up Cock Eye Creek"

Gold Trail is an amazing ride 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.

You’ll start in the history created 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.  

In 2020 we're giving riders 2 options for the race, 1 going up Cock Eye Creek and the 2nd going up Mosquito Creek.  Both rides are the same distance but Cock Eye Creek is 30 minutes slower for the lead riders and up to 90 minutes slower for the tail end riders. 

The last 24km of the race will be the same for everyone, just the first part differs. If you're a seasoned mountain bike do Cock Eye Creek, if you're out to enjoy some of the countries best Untamed scenery then Mosquito Creek is the option.

With these 2 options it gives everyone the chance to experience the amazing Untamed West Coast.
