Meetup info We are planning to enter an ACG group to participate in the PartnersLife Dual in 2019. I have set up a group called ACG. If you use the following link to register you would be joining the ACG group: https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=29773&G=79760 There is the option to camp on Motutapu Island for the weekend (Friday & Saturday evening) - camping is free - or just participate in the event on Saturday. The Partners Life Dual cater for MTB with 26km or 42km options or running/walking (various distances). At the moment it is just myself and my family doing the camping and Carrie is also participating in the dual. Partners Life Dual Event Description Staged on one of the most prized landscapes in New Zealand - the Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu and Rangitoto - the Partners Life DUAL is an incredible event offering trail run and walk, off-road triathlon and mountain bike options. Produced in partnership with Total Sport and Motutapu Restoration Trust, participation in this event contributes directly to the preservation and reforestation of Motutapu. The Partners Life DUAL is a once a year opportunity. At no other time throughout the year are people able to participate in an event of this nature, and at no other time are mountain bikes allowed on the islands. Entry numbers for the 2019 Partners Life DUAL Motutapu-Rangitoto Traverse are limited due to the nature of these two protected islands, so make sure you get your entry early!

SKILL LEVEL This is for Intermediate riders. TRAILS Mix of grade 2-3 through out the ride - FITNESS Medium pace - over a 20-25km distance. ACG operates a no drop policy which means we regroup at trail heads and trail ends to ensure everyone is safe and accounted for. We will be out there for a few hours but it will be at a comfortable pace and will regroup for each other at junctions and top of hills. SOCIAL The ride will be followed by beer at the 'Beer Spot' in Kumeu for those interested in socialising afterwards ----------------- MEETING POINT Arrive and meet up at the BBQ tables in front of the main Woodhill MTB Park shop by or prior to 2pm so everyone can have time to purchase park passes and get their equipment ready to ride by 2:15pm. Arriving early means you won't be left behind - you can always grab a coffee and socialise with the other riders while we wait for the 2.15pm start time. Casual pass $10 or you can buy 6 or 10 month passes.
This a social ride. It is suitable for beginners, building up your fitness/confidence or if you just want a social ride.We will warm up on the Family Loop and then head up the hill to split into groups depending on ability and inclination. The pace ranges from quite slow to nearly intermediate and the ride atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is welcome. Entry to Woodhill is $10 or less with a pass. Look forward to riding with you. Linda
