Join us for an early morning ride at Woodhill on Sunday for 2 to 2.5 hours of riding. SKILL LEVEL This is an Intermediate level ride. It won't suit complete beginners and some basic fitness is required to be able to ride for 2 hours. TRAILS Mix of grade 2 & 3 (potentially some 4) through out the day but as mentioned above you can elect to do only 3's and the odd easy 4 if you aren't in the advanced camp FITNESS We won’t be treating these as uphill races, the ride is more focused on the ride downhill so your uphill climbing speed is not critical though you must be fit enough to climb judgement call at least 2 times. 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. ----------------- MEETING POINT Arrive and meet up at the BBQ tables in front of the main Woodhill MTB Park shop by 7am so everyone can have time to purchase park passes and get their equipment ready to ride by 7:10-7:15am at the latest. Arrive a few minutes before 7am when gates open. Arriving early means you won't be left behind. 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
A social Anniversary Weekend trip suitable for all levels. Staying at Tauranga Bay north of KeriKeri. Ride Waitangi MTB Park, the Twin Coast Trail (probably not all of it there and back though) and the Pirau Ridge Gravel road track in the Puketi Forest. Afternoons swimming, surfing, boogie boarding (swell permitting) and lazing about at Tauranga Bay. NB: I have dibs on a house on the waterfront that sleeps 6-8. If more people are interested I will wait list until there are enough for a second house or cabin in the campground. Both options cost about the same.
