[MTB] Riverhead Evening Ride Mtb Trails - BARLOW ROAD
These Riverhead rides are on unmaintained rough singletrack NOT on the gravel roads and will alternate on Wednesdays between various entrances to the forest so please take note of the location and also note that this is not the WCRC Compound so please don't wait at that location.
NOTE: There are no change or toilet facilities at any of these locations.
These rides are not for beginners but for intermediate and above riders who have some mountain bike experience and want to step up from riding at Woodhill. No drop policy and will wait at junctions to re group.
Arrive by 5:15pm hit the trails at 5.30pm ride for approx 2 hours - no set tracks decided on, we will make a selection on the night.
LOCATION: Riverhead Forest - Barlow Road carpark on Ararimu Valley Rd
DIRECTIONS: When coming from Auckland City via the North Western Motorway - Turn right on to Old North Road from State Highway 16 at the big roundabout, then right into Ararimu Valley Road, travel for 5km where you will arrive at the Barlow Road car park (as seen in the photo). If you reach the second one lane bridge you have gone to far.
Here's a Google map link to the location - https://goo.gl/maps/YKrhHDGVJGT2
IMPORTANT: If there has been sustain rain in the 2-3 days leading up to a riding date then I may decide to cancel a specific ride due to the trail composition being clay based. When water logged the trails become to greasy to ride - ensure you check the comments section in the days leading up to the event to see if the ride is going ahead.
If anyone wants to carpool I suggest you mention it in the comments and see who can help out.
Hope to see you out there - let me know by txt to the below number if you are going to be late.
