The club offers a varied selection of social and recreational rides both in Auckland and further afield.
These are a great way to meet new people, to ride new places and most importantly, to have fun on your MTB!
Occasionally we organise other rides such as night rides or special one-offs. Keep an eye on this website, or our Facebook page.
Mark & Kelly Toplis run a popular Saturday afternoon ride at Woodhill, and usually go for a post-ride “refuel” as well. Sign up to their mailing list to be informed of where and when.
These rides are where we get out and ride our favourite local trails. We try to offer a bit of something for everyone, and hopefully let you ride somewhere new and maybe a bit different!
If you’re keen to venture further afield than Woodhill but aren’t keen on getting lost exploring at Riverhead or Hunua, then these will be the rides for you.
These are where we get away from the big smoke and ride some of the country’s best trails. From the sweet flowing singletrack of Rotorua to epic back-country adventures like Moerangi or the 42 Traverse, they’re usually limited to a set number of riders so sign up quick to secure your place.
CrankSistas Women’s Rides – NEW!
Calling all wives, girlfriends, daughters, sisters, mums and just generally wicked chicks …. have you ever wanted to head out to Woodhill or an Auckland MTB club ride but just don’t have the confidence to head out with the boys…. or you just simply want to meet fellow women mountain bikers to go riding with? Well these rides are for you!
Some other things to note:
Children – Due to the physical nature of mountain biking, and the club not wanting to offer a babysitting service, the minimum age for our rides is 16. Children aged 12 and above can attend if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian. Occasionally we may run family-friendly rides suitable for younger children (again, accompanied by a parent/guardian) and will clearly mark them as such.
Non-members – Non-members are always welcome on our rides. If you enjoy them and keep coming back then expect someone from the committee to start politely asking you to join the club. :) We may charge a small fee or ask for a donation from non-members on some rides, for example if we put on a BBQ or organise accommodation, but this will be detailed beforehand.
