This route is part of the Further Faster Canterbury Hills Collection
This is a great cruisy run with a bit of a hill climb towards the end - starting in the Hanmer Village & taking any of the entries into the Hanmer Heritage forest. Easy Rider is a clearly marked & is a shared mountain bike trail. It can be run either clockwise or anti-clockwise, anti-clockwise is slightly uphill.
Once you get to Jollies Pass Rd, cross onto the Heritage Trail & then follow the wide trail back towards town. You can pop out here or follow the trail called Sloop towards Majuba which takes you on a trail less traveled half way up Conical Hill. Make sure you make it to the top & soak up the view then enjoy the fast downhill all the way back down for coffee.
