    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

    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
