    Whats the deal with the gate and sign saying it closes at 5:30 on the Nelson side? I’ve been over a few times at night but usually just to the gate closer to the lake and then back home to Picton so didn’t even notice itRead more on AdventureRidingNZ.co.nz

    Wasn’t locked when we went thru it early May. I closed it for this photo. I don’t think you’d get a bigger bike under or around it.

    They wouldn’t spend all that money on it to not ‘use’ it though. Maybe they’ll lock it for part of winter, who knows.

    I just hope the one at the bottom is open when I quietly fang through after 6 tonight XD

    Sure you can ride past the 5PM gate. I remember thinking that it would be easy enough last time I went past it.Read more on AdventureRidingNZ.co.nz

    I am surprised that they didn’t have sort of mechanism for holding it open, i.e. it could be closed by some oik like myself.

    That would make sense.

    I hope so but chances of getting moist are pretty high! Hope the Roller Derby and beers are worth it haha
