Overview

Reward yourself with big views at the top and a sense of a real remote country covered in pristine indigenous forests on this full day of pedalling up the gentle incline of the old mail road that connects Lyell to the Lyell saddle and beyond. Learn about the history of the place with fascinating mining relics and interpretive boards found along the way.

We begin in Nelson with a trip down the magnificent Buller George to Lyell where we saddle up for an easy ride up a gentle gradient past historic places signposted with interpretive boards and littered with intriguing relics from a bygone era. At the top, soak up commanding views of pristine and remote country before stopping for lunch at the hut.

Relish the views of the Ghost Lake and surrounds after lunch before heading back down for a winding and scenic descent to Lyell.

On the way back home, we stop for our standard “Debrief” at a café or local watering hole in Murchison.
