This is suitable for any bike (including e-bikes or hybrids) that can handle rough gravel roads.

We will travel about an hour and a half from Dunedin to a carpark near the Old Dunstan Road and cycle the 4WD track that follows the top of the Lammermoor Ranges. With stunning views and interesting landscapes, this “there and back” track allows you to set your own pace and do as little or as much as you please.

The track ascends to a high point near the Ailsa Craig trig. It passes by the old Mountain Hut site with its lovely views and continues in an undulating manner to the Lammermoor trigs at the southern end of the range.

The initial climb up onto the range is steep, but levels out somewhat for most of the trip — we may start above the steepest section on the range itself if we have enough four-wheel drive vehicles to carry bikes up there on the day.

This trip is intended for those with a reasonable level of fitness.
