2017 Working Bee Schedule:
We are currently building a brand new trail and need your help!
Saturday 29 July 9.30am-1.00pm
Saturday 12 August 9.30am-1.00pm
Saturday 26 August 9.30am-1.00pm
Meet at the Ivanhoe Road Carpark at 9.30 or else follow the footpath to the other end and find us there at the start of the new trail. Bring your own spade, pickaxe, rake if possible. Wear sturdy shoes (Gumboots would be ideal if it has been raining) and bring gloves. A water bottle and snacks would be good too.
The club organises regular working bees to develop the MTB trail network in the Hunua Ranges. Auckland Council very helpfully provide tools, machinery and resources and the club provides the manpower.
We go for a pre-dig ride, partly because it would be rude not to… but also to check for anything that might need maintenance. After that we regroup at the car park before getting stuck into the work.
Meet at the Mangatawhiri carpark at 8.30am if you want to go for the warm-up ride, or at10.30am to rip straight into the digging. The club will look after you with a high energy lunch and our mates at the ranger station usually shout a BBQ afterwards – this is if you let us know you are coming!
So us: firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the mailing list, phone Hayden on 021 665 242.
There is also the opportunity for you and your mates to get a team together and head out and work on the tracks any time of the year. Just give Ranger Scott Kusabs a call on ph: 09 292 4267 to confirm some appropriate dates.
