Since the late 90's our devoted club members have volunteered thousands of hours to deliver a small but effective network in several areas across the region.
In recent years, the clubs main focus has been on developing our two major assets; the Parihaka MTB Park and Glenbervie Forest trail network.
We're trying to keep up with the latest technology, you can find all our trails on Trail Forks. We find this far better than any printed map as it is constantly kept up to date by our minions and trail fairies working behind the scenes. Download the app to your phone, or check it out at Trail Forks
The heart and soul of Mountain Biking in Whangarei.
Glenbervie offers a wide range of riding in plantation pine forest and some stunning pockets of native bush. Check out the Trail Forks website for the most accurate map and up to date trail information.
The park is a short 15 minute drive from the CBD, and shares a carpark with Adventure Forest on Maruatua Rd, Glenbervie.
Parihaka is home to our flow and gravity-oriented trails, and is located within an easy 5 minute drive or 15 minute ride from the CBD.
Offering multiple Grade 3-5 trails built by local builders Trail Flow, Whangarei Trail Builders and noteably Southstar trails.
There are several outdated maps within the park istelf, but all trails and conditions can be found on Trail Forks. The park can be accessed from the carpark on Abbey caves Road, or from the gate opposite the toilet block near the summit of Memorial Drive if you're riding from the CBD and feel like a good climb.
There are many other hidden gems around Northland, including less frequently ridden forestry areas such as Mt Tiger and Whanui Block. These areas offer some superb riding and adventure, with lung bursting climbs that lead to some epic pieces of single track through beautiful native bush and coastal scenery.
If you're from out of town and want to explore, drop into one of the local bike shops or send a message to the club Facebook page for further directions.
