The Timber Trail is a fantastic winter ride. Keep an eye on the weather and when the  forecast is for one of those perfectly clear. crisp, windless days, head to the Central North  Island and ride the timber Trail. If you are very fit, start early and knock the full 85km off in a day.  A better option is a later start and a nice easy ride on the Southern half of the trail from  Piropiro to Ongarue (45km). Book a local accommodation with a fireplace, get a group  together and make a weekend of it. EPIC CYCLE ADVENTURES is offering a special winter rate of $30 ea for a shuttle from  Ongarue to Piropiro and $40 ea from Ongarue to Pureora‐ Minimum group size 4 people.

Colin Maiden Park Bike Hub

East City Bmx need your help! They’re campaigning to council for a bike hub to replace their old track. This would be an awesome facility for all sorts of cyclist, from kids to pros. Even better, it’s within a stones throw of the new Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive  cycleway. Head over to their site and sign their petition to voice your support.

Hunua S.L.A.M. (Singletrack Love and Maintenance) Sat 13th June

hunuastreamHunua Single Track Love And Maintenance session. The trail network has taken a bit of a beating in the past few weeks (note: the River Trail is currently closed due to erosion under a bridge). Working bee this Saturday to spruce up the network in prep for a new bridge in July. We go for a pre-dig ride, partly because it would be rude not to… but also to check for anything that might need maintenance. After that we regroup at the car park before getting stuck into the work. Meet at the Mangatawhiri carpark at 8.30am if you want to go for the warm-up ride, or at 10.30am to rip straight into the digging. The club will look after you with a high energy lunch and our mates at the ranger station usually shout a BBQ afterwards – this is if you let us know you are coming! trails@aucklandmtb.co.nz or Hayden on 021 665 242 More details…
