  South Island Gallery / Mountain Biking / 2007-09 Mt Oxford, Wharfedale, Ashley Gorge circuit  


We did the epic Wharfedale, Lees Valley, Ashley Gorge ride around Mt Oxford. Awesome singletrack, plenty of fords, hundreds of fallen trees to climb over. We'll be back when DoC clear the trees, and maybe staying in the hut halfway around would be a good idea.
