Looking like another great weekend at the park! The track fairies have been out - BON APPETIT has had some love and is the pick for the weekend if you fancy a frenchman’s feast! TAANE’S CLIMB has had a tidy up and is looking sharp for your first ascent or hit the shuttle and ride all day long! The pump track of course is the hot favourite and the tropical smoothie at the cafe is sublime. So many options. Come on!
PLEASE KEEP OFF! The pump track has had its final compaction so now we just need some rain to bind it up... coming in the next few days. It should be all good by the weekend, so no riding it till then please.
Huge thanks to PETE SECCOMBE, PETE RICHARDS, TAUNAHA SMITH, STEVE NICHOLLS, LISA PIERI and KYLIE MOTTLE, for help with rocks and rakes over the past week. We certainly appreciate the help. It’s hard work man!
BIG NEWS! Another track is now complete and will be open as of tomorrow morning!! Thanks to the PROVINCIAL GROWTH FUND! Oh yeah!
KAAINGA KAURI – Distance: 100m | Grade 2 – Easy
Access this track from RUARANGI. A short climb provides a link to Mt Bledisloe Lookout where you will enjoy one of the best views in all of Pewhairangi and experience the tranquility of this beautiful location.
Trail name origin: Kaainga Kauri (Ky-eng-ah Kho-ree)
Within the tree kingdom of the Southern Hemisphere, the Kauri reigns supreme. According to maori elders, the Kauri emits a soundwave frequency that acts as a beacon for whales who pick up the signal via sonar receptors which then helps this giant marine species navigate our vast Southern Seas. Maori legend also proclaims the Kauri to be a God and the Northern Territories of Aotearoa is its special home or kaainga. Imagine 2000 years in to the future, the young Kauri currently established near this trail ride will eventually grow high above the ridgeline and dominate the skies, an awesome gift from beyond the realms of infinite potential. If we prevent land development from encroaching on its kaainga and the Waitangi Estate is carefully guarded or protected, then these giant Kauri will surely enjoy the best picturesque and panoramic views of the Bay of Islands coastline for many generations to come. To the kaitiaki of our kaainga, KIA KAHA!
Looking like a fine day tomorrow. Tracks are in super condition. Waitangi Mountain Bike Park Shuttles will be leaving the carpark at 10am then pickups in the trails at the designated shuttle stops after that. Shuttle is running both Saturday and Sunday. Cafe of course open too so come on down. See you there!
