Old Ghost Road Receives IMBA Epic Rides Status


Old Ghost Road Receives IMBA Epic Rides Status

A huge congratulations is in order for the Old Ghost Road which has become one of nine trails in the World to be taken into the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s (IMBA) stable of ‘EPIC Rides’.

Nine new trails and rides have been added to the list of demanding, mostly singletrack experiences in remote, backcountry settings. These “epic” routes are nominated by local riders and serve to offer inspiration. They should be on every mountain biker’s bucket list.

This is an exciting accolade for The New Zealand Cycle Trail, further elevating New Zealand’s status as a premier destination for backcountry riding adventures.

The full list of designees and criteria can be found here. How many of these epic trails have you heard about or perhaps ridden?
