Mountain bikers may soon be allowed to ride the Kepler and Hollyford tramping tracks.

The Department of Conservation’s Southland conservancy is including the proposal its draft conservation management strategy.

Its community support manager, Sarah Murray, said there was a lot of interest from mountain bikers wanting to ride on the two Fiordland tracks, which was currently banned.

Christchurch mountain biking advocate Guy Wynn-Williams, a key advocate who fought for the Heaphy track to re-open, said yesterday he welcomed the news.

“Regardless of whether it’s a good or bad idea, I think it’s a delightful change in the Department of Conservation’s demeanour to be actively looking for opportunities for mountain biking.’’
