Request to stay away from Motupipi Hill tracks for now:
Please DO NOT ride Motupipi Hill tracks for a day or so after the rains we have just had. Phil and I will try to check the tracks soon, but have our own slip problems at home to deal with first.
Some access issues in Rameka area as a result of all that rain
FYI - the heavy rain has caused a slip on the Rameka Creek Road, below the old mill site where you can normally access the bridge at the bottom of Great Expecta...tions. This will be cleared soon, possibly done already. Access to the bottom of the Historic Rameka Track, across the creek near the totara tree carpark, is also a challenge at present.
No other word of damage to tracks etc - please share info if you've been in the area since last night.
This is not the Project Rameka bridge that was built in April. It is further down Rameka Creek, a structure that was built as a kind of 'clip on' to part of The Klicks track.
The Rameka Creek bridge coping just fine with the current deluge

Interesting feature about NZ mountain biking broadcast on Radio NZ National this morning
All the best for the achieving all your cycling goals in 2018, Jack!
Big thanks to local crew for track tweaking
Big thanks to the Track Fairies today. Between Steve Thompson,Brian Alder and Bruce Chick we managed to scrub up Expectations,Odyssey,Hell and Carnage and the Klicks. Just in time for Christmas. Cheers guys.
If you're planning on any cycling anywhere in the region over the next week or so - or until we have some decent rain! - you need to read this
FIRE RISK - Trail Closure Update
19 December 2017
Please take the time to read the update on our website, and share the info with all your riding buddies. Tasma...n Pine/AFM and NCC have worked hard to keep access open to a lot of trails, which is really appreciated.
If you see anyone heading towards closed trails please let them know the deal. Checks will be taking place for everyone's safety. Thanks
It's happened again! If you read our post from November 18th, you'll know what I mean. Once again, some very generous people, totally out of the blue, have paid for bikes on laybuy. As we said last time, it's an amazing random act of kindness from someone who just loves cycling. It's completely anonymous, no connection between the giver and receiver other than this great gift.
It's a privilege to share the great news with the purchasers. Makes you think about doing a few random acts of kindness (RAKs) yourself, doesn't it?! 😍
