A note from Wanganui Mountain Bike Club:
The Harakeke MTB park is taking shape and many families are having great fun out there. Fantastic.
Formal signs will go up fairly soon with a detailed map. Paper maps will also be made available at a small cost from selected sites in the area e.g. I-site, Bikeshed, Cyclesport, Orange etc. Costs are mounting in creating and maintaining the tracks and paying the club access and insurance fees.
We need to become a viable club and the only way to do that is to have a substantial and vibrant membership. Our ‘sweat equity’ is already substantial – in excess of 100hrs per kilometre of track – but we need people to join the club!
Attached are maps, as well as a membership application form.
Your challenge is:
1. to join the Wanganui MTB Club (fill in the membership form attached) and
2. forward this information on to as many people as possible, that you know will enjoy what Harakeke, Hylton and Lismore has to offer
3. to spread the word about the pleasure of our local environment that is user friendly for families and
4. to inform others about the easy nature of the tracks where literally anyone can learn to MTB before heading out for the big adventures.
Harakeke is designed as a family friendly MTB park where anyone from age 4 to 104 can learn to Mountain Biking and discover that it doesn’t have to be an extreme sport needing mountains.
