A mate and I are heading to the South Island in a couple of weeks and we are curious to know the extent of the damage to trails in the Port Hills area.

Would we be wise to not consider riding in that area?

The media coverage looks pretty extensive but I thought I would ask the question.

We are heading across Arthurs Pass and then up to Nelson for 2 weeks of riding so if Christchurch is simply out of the question then its no biggy.

Thanks.

It was probably a silly question to ask but I was just as curious to know the extent of damage to that area whether it was safe or not.

Thanks for the heads up, I guess we will give that location a miss on this trip and concentrate on heading North to Nelson.

Hope things improve in the mean time.

Thanks.

be prepared for more climbing though ... after the big shake the port hills are now about 3ft higher ...

watch out for boulders if you do go riding there though, both on the track already and those dislodged by further shakes ...
