You may have heard the rumours about a mountain bike park at Auckland Airport. Well it’s true and the Runway MTB Park about to open! Our very own Gabb has been involved in designing this short mix of loops and feels that most of us will enjoy it. “The brief was to make it family friendly,” says the ex club President, “but that doesn’t mean we can’t have testing corners, table tops, rock gardens, berms and there is even a cool Pump Track built with the help of Puni Reserve Pump Track creator Clinton Williams.”
So come along to the fun of the opening from – the club will be running a sausage sizzle and there will be drinks available. Click here for directions – the parking is just behind The Warehouse. The fun begins at 10am and features nothing more than trying out the tracks.
This is a great addition to the offroad riding options in Auckland, especially if live/work nearby (over 12,000 people work at or around Auckland Airport) and is an ideal place to take anyone who is new to the sport. Well done to Auckland International Airport Ltd for taking this initiative. If you like it, be sure to give them feedback – we might be able to get even more tracks!
