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.
I’ve never seen that gate locked. Has anyone?
