The Wanganui Mountain Bike Club welcomes all riders and any new members interested in mountain biking wheather it cross country or downhill, for fitness, racing, leisure or just visiting the Wanganui region looking to ride.
Mountain Biking offers an enjoyable and exciting way to see the country and meet people whilst experiencing the outdoors all year round.
Onwards and upwards.....Wanganui Mountain Bike Club are still the great group of members that has been around for a while so if you would like to be involved we would welcome your help and support and your positive ideas and comments.
It is through the club envolvement that the legitimate access to local forests and Hylton park are granted, an annual right to occupy fee, access fees, necessary indemnity insurance, maintenance of key holders, and licenced radios, are all requirements which give credibility and confidence to the forest operators who generously allow access for recreational use.
There is exciting new development at Harakeke forest with a network of new trails being established and built forming a mountain bike park, with the objective of the park being a family friendly facility with the aim of assisting children/people/families to develop a sense of self and community through skill development whilst participating in an outdoors activity.
We have an access agreement with Ernslaw One that requires cyclers to be members of the club in order to legally ride in Harakeke. This is in part due to the clubs insurance cover through BikeNZ.
We encourage mountainbikers to become club members, there is no obligation to attend meetings or participate in activities, although all are welcome to do so, essentially your membership ensures the ongoing club financial stability to continue to support, develop and allow access to the forest, tremendous effort goes into creating and maintaining trails for your enjoyment, please show your support through membership.
