    Hi – a friend and I are interested in the Ngaumu Gravel Grind. I have a couple of questions. She has an electric mountain bike – are e- bikes allowed? And I see there’s a river crossing – how deep is that likely to be and how fast flowing?

    Any chance of getting a downloadable map file for a Garmin bike computer for the Ngaumu Gravel Grind ?
