Return to Dillon Cone
Back in 2017, a team strapped mountain bikes to packrafts in an attempt to access an unridden peak accessible only by river. Their mission? To explore the boundaries of bikerafting and freeride at Dillon Cone.
Mid-way through the trip, the team realised that their route had become impassable as a result of the Kaikoura Earthquake. They had to turn back.
Five years on, the Dillon Cone dream remained alive, and so Damian Stone, Deane Parker and Sam (Muel) Jones (three of the original five) included Rose Green, bikerafting convert, set off to negotiate the jagged gorge of the Clarence River (Waiau-toa awa) by packraft.
