January Update

Hola - we've been busy beating back Spring, and working on the existing trail network. 2017 is shaping up to be a consolidation year, after seven new tracks being built over the last 18 months.

We recently had Scott from T5 Contracting out with his Little Yellow Digger tidying up a lot of track, and realigning a couple of spots after trees came down.





We've almost finished spraying the main network and then we will expand this to the remaining tracks that have a couple of pines blocking the track.

It's all shaping up nicely, come out and play!

Here is a cool video of a recent ride around some of the tracks we have.

We have a Bed & Breakfast through AirBnB for a reasonable rate, so you can ride, rest, and ride again!

Now that summer is finally here, look good, show off your guns and help out the club with your very own Haven Tee, you can choose from a variety of colours.
Grab one here >>> http://www.myshirt.co.nz/collections/clubs-groups/products/haven-mtb-tee



And lastly here are some recent pics of the place, come out and play.














May your wheels remain forever true.

November Update

Hi Folks

Life has gotten in the way of regular updating on the site, but don't be fooled into thinking nothing is happening!

The tracks and trees are both growing!

At the moment we are fighting the initial spring growth, so be patient as we cut back the trail corridor, spray the grass and scrub cut the top slope. Haven is very fertile which makes spring a challenge.

We have a couple of trees down blocking Zig & Zag and Eagles Nest, but we should have them cleared up asap. The rest of the network is running well and there are no issues.

There are a couple of new tracks Give it a Go and Pork Pie, and a couple more in the pipeline....

There's always a reason to come and ride at Haven.

Happy Trails

February - April Update

So I've been a bit slack on the web front and the digging front - Mr Haven has been officially banned from digging until he gets his dodgy digits fixed. But the park is looking and riding really well.

Ali and I scoped out a new track - Give it a Go - and you will see I took some preliminary photos, he has continued on, of course, and has pretty much finished it!!

The long long long long autumn has meant that whilst we are dry, the riding is super. The great news is that the new loop should be fairly winter-proof particularly with the new bridges across the creek in place taking away the biggest hazard.

Lots of exciting plans to come to fruition shortly. It's our ten year birthday in 13 days, so stay tuned on Facebook and here for lots of information and fun stuff.

It's annual subs time, $15 for an individual, $20 for a family for a WHOLE year's access to the park!

Check out the awesome drone video footage of parts of the park - it's looking super!

Video Two:


Here be some photos of the place as well.

Don't forget we have a B&B&B and it will be open all winter too! Mr Haven is happy to take people round the park if needed as well. Check it out here >> https://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/10950472

See you soon
Mr Haven
