We are loving meeting so many neat people on their Old Ghost RD adventures. 

 

If you want to ride it in One day or over 4 days we can help - Just email or ring to work out a Date & time with what end suits for your pick up...... we will safely shuttle you back to your car (after you have eaten at the pub if you like)

P.S. we can do car relocation's too if your doing an over nighter - we have full class 2 and can relocate vans/ mini buses as well.

“Epic ride on the Old Ghost Road”


5 of 5 stars
We rode the Old Ghost Road a couple of weeks ago, and got a lift up with Habitat. They were really helpful and have top notch hire gear - to the extent that I wished I hadn't carted my bike from Australia so I could have hired one of theirs! The trail is an unbelievable experience, and it was great to get shuttled from end to end!

“Awesome advice for biking the Old Ghost Road”

26 April, 2016

Called in to Habitat Sports whilst on holiday with a view to gaining information regarding their services because we are hoping to ride the Old Ghost Road next year. Deena & Adrian spent a huge amount of their time giving us advice both on the Old Ghost itself & what they can provide us with in the way of hire gear for the ride. They were possibly the most helpful & friendly people I have ever met in a retail environment & were so willing to share their knowledge. I now feel very relaxed regarding the logistics of the bike ride because they offer such a great package that is all inclusive. So when it comes time to do the ride I know that I will be able to hire everything we need from them & it will be all ready for us to load up & go which takes so much of the stress away when planning a trip like this.

“Fabulous experience on The Old Ghost Road”

“Fabulous experience on The Old Ghost Road”
5 of 5 stars
This track is quite unique. A mix of alpine ridges and beech forest with riverside features plus very interesting history as well. We did it in the 2 ½ days recommended to us which was about right in terms of being able to stop to read the informative boards and to enjoy the views. They are spectacular. We had fabulous weather and clear skies so perfect for the trip. The trail is constantly being upgraded – we met some guys with a stone crusher on the top on day 1 breaking the granite into small pieces - & there is a wide range of surfaces. We hired duel suspension bikes from Habitat Sports, Westport, which we highly recommend. The bikes are superbly maintained which minimised anxiety of breakdown. The owners, Denna & Adrian, are passionate about safety and enjoyment of the experience. They are very knowledgeable regarding their extraordinary outdoor environment and the range of tracks on offer. We hired our food and extra gear from them also which reduced the amount of luggage to haul to Westport. Huge admiration for the visionary & dedicated people working on The Old Ghost Road – what an asset to New Zealand!
