Away Ride – Twin Coast & Waitangi – 4th & 5th June

Ride Leader: Nomes

Keen to ride from one side of NZ to the other? We’re heading on a CX mission to check out the new Twin Coast Trail. It’s an easy grade trail, so the plan is to ride the full 85km from Hokianga Harbour, with a few stops to check out the Wairere Boulders, lunch at KaiKohe, then cruise into Paihia for sunset. Bring your mountain bike as well since we’ll be checking out the trails at the Waitangi MTB park on Monday.

Map for Twin Coast Cycleway

Rough itinerary:

  • Saturday 3rd June – Meet at Paihia for an afternoon cruise to recce the MTB trails or roll up later for a beer and bike chat.
  • Sunday 4th June – Early morning shuttle to Horeke. Ride the Twin Coast Trail back to Paihia.
  • Monday 5th June – 2-3 hour morning ride in the MTB park before heading back to Auckland

More details will be added to the facebook event page.

Please register your interest with events@aucklandmtb.co.nz so we can confirm numbers for the shuttle.

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.
