Arch Hill Dig Day – Saturday 27th May

We are starting a new trail code-named A.T.W.T (above the walking track) very soon. If you would like to be involved in the design or build let us know! We are always keen for lots of input as to what sort of trail people want and lots of hands make light work when it comes to building. Our current plan should add between 0.5 and 1km of trail and needs to be designed to have something for everyone. There will be a tough switchback climb to start (this is inevitable, unfortunately) but after that, it is very gentle and meandering until the turnaround and then downhill all the way back down! There is lots of room for different downhill lines so that we can have a technical challenge for those who like that sort of thing but also really nice flowy alternatives for everyone else.
So first dig day is on Saturday 27 May from 9.30am  to start the build. We’d love to see you come along and give us your input and help with the building. We will meet at the mapboard by the field on Ivanhoe Road. Bring a spade/rake/pickaxe/water bottle and snacks.

This event is coming to Auckland (finally), and screening at the Academy Cinema on Tuesday 24th May and Thursday 26th May, at 8:00pm, tickets are $20.00 and are available directly from the Academy Cinema’s Ticket Box and also on-line at their website

The 2016 collection has an absolutely breath-taking range of short bike films – from mountain bike, to road, bmx, travel, personal journeys and triumphs. The heart of this collection is showing real people on ordinary bikes being part of some pretty extra-ordinary stories!

It’s going to be a great night -WHY??

  • awesome line up of short bike films
  • people can ride to the Cinema and park their bike up outside and leave their trusty treadly up, watched over by security
  • red carpet entrance
  • photographer present
  • a few spot prizes thrown around at half time from our generous sponsors
  • unless you are on your bike, there are few better places to be!!

The organisers are running a promo to win tickets on their website to Aucklanders who sign up for their email newsletter.

New Date for Club Ride

NEW DATE (was Saturday 16 April)
Sunday 17 April 2016 –  Langs Beach up into the Brynderwyns


Join committee members Alex and Sarah for a ride up into the Brynderwyns. The ride will be predominantly gravel roads with an approximately 5km section of singletrack at the end which forms part of the Te Araroa Walkway. There is a longer option of about 50km, or a shorter option of about 25km. Both rides will feature long climbs (bring your legs) but worth it for the excellent views over Bream Bay to the Whangarei Heads. Don’t forget to pack your togs for a swim afterwards, and Alex and Sarah have kindly offered to host a BBQ at their family batch a few hundred metres up the road so bring something to throw on the barbie.

When and Where: Meet at 10am sharp at the carpark at the southern end of Langs Beach (just past the intersection of Cove Rd and Hector Lang Drive).
Ride Leaders: Alex Cull and Sarah Gilkinson
