    My mate did it in the last fortnight in a group of mainly 1190R's and the like. Lots of pics on FB. I can put you in touch if you want to talk directly.

    AFAIK there are no access restrictions.

    Sadly due to fire risk, all mtb tracks (and most council reserves etc) are closed in Nelson, Richmond and Kaiteriteri, so we may not be able to get a ride in while you are here.

    If it's the one ending 386, then yes.

    Got a young chap coming with me on a dr6fiddy, he might like you to share your experience on that bike.

    Anyway, let us know.
