Birth of a New Trail at Hunua

We’ll be out at Hunua this Sunday (14th September) for the first working bee of spring. Come along and help us break through with the new trail (working title Coronation St, apparently the name of the old workers houses situated there during the construction of the dam in the 1960s).

Trail Fund have come to the party and helped fund the purchase of five trail tools for this project. All we need now is some volunteers to wield them! If you’re keen drop Hayden an email at president@aucklandmtb.co.nz and we’ll repay you with a high-energy lunch, some ice cold beers and maybe even a few snarlers at the ranger station afterwards.

Details of times and where to meet over on the working bees page.
