Wed Night MTB Social Ride – Updated Lead Rider Roster

Thanks so much to those who have volunteered [Sophiemarie, Duane, Darryn, Sarah, Barry, Allan, Martyn, Ben] to be on the lead rider roster for the novice group for the Wed Night MTB Social Ride. We now have eight people on the roster, so you are only rostered on 5-6 times per year. If you can’t make your night, please organise a swap. Updated roster below. We are tentatively at Riverhead until the end of April and then move to Woodhill but we will watch the weather and forest conditions.



DOC Helping out Auckland MTB Club @ Hunua

I think we can safely assume that all mtbers love riding at Hunua. So let’s join with our mates at Auckland MTB Club for a working bee on Sat 8th June. The order of the day is pretty simple and goes something like this: Ride – Dig – Eat – Ride Again. Can’t really go wrong. Check out the calender for more info at
