New Zealand Cycle Touring Route - Black Forest Station to Albury

Mackenzie pass is a back country route that is not a main road and is shingle and there is a steady but not to demanding climb out of the Mackenzie Basin through the pass. The pass leads to Albury which is a small village with a pub in the southern part of the Canterbury region. The ride is 70ks long and takes you through the fantastic Mackenzie Basin back country landscape with few people and minimal traffic.

We went through in March and overnight there was a dusting of snow.
