January Update

Happy New Year!

It's been a funny ole summer so far, plenty of rain, plenty of cold, plenty of sun, but also plenty of trail building and maintenance.  Not as much riding as I would like though!

We've finished Squeeze On In, our newest trail, and it's going to be super duper fun. With all the recent rain and sun, we should be able to open the trail in the not too distant future.

We now have some sweet singletrack on both sides of the creek, which will form the basis of our starter loop, with plenty of other options.

Lots of work has been done beating back Spring, taming back the top slope, cutting back overhanging branches and stuff, as well as the spraying and mowing of the trail network.

A warning that our number one hazard - Onga Onga - New Zealand Native stinging nettle is in full flight and is prevalent on the entire property but it particularly likes the creek. We work hard to ensure the trail corridor is clear of it, but you will encounter it if you go exploring. It is evil shit, don't let it touch you. Here is some more info

Great news is that the broom beetle bug is doing it's thing and there is significant die back on our resident broom population, the catch is we are and will continue to get broom droop over the tracks, so a timely reminder to take it easy on your first lap of the place.

We have a host of native bird life with heaps of bell birds, wood pigeons and fantails, we have just had a wee family of magpies move in, so will look to send them to heaven shortly.

We are now planning out new tracks and riding them of course!

Here are some pretty pictures.

See you soon

December Update

Well that brings a close to 2015, and another very successful year at that.

Plenty more trails, plenty more trees and a lot more visitors, it is all going swimmingly.

Thanks again to all the helpers and supporters who help and contribute to help make this mad crazy scheme all happen.

We have doubled our starter loop, we have three tracks that connect our lower and upper trail networks, have put 6 bridges over the creek in order to keep your feet dry over winter.

And at the close of the year we are extremely close to having another track which will give us another bigger loop and have sweet tracks on each side of the creek.

Expect more in 2016, we already have the little yellow digger teed up for extending the climb, a proposed downhill track and plenty more hand built magic.

You should come out and check it out over Summer, contact us to gain access to the park.

We dig and maintain trails each and every Tuesday and Saturday, contact us to help.

Here are a few photos from the last month or so.

May your Wheels Remain Forever True.
