Due to disruptions this year with the forest closing and Covid 19, the 2019/2020 memberships are valid to 31st May 2020.
New memberships will be opening soon. If you have recently purchased a membership I.e. this month, you will he transferred to next season. Due to the disruptions, we have decided to keep the membership fees the same. We are also offering three year memberships again to help with building new tracks this winter. Money from other sources will be limited this year due to the current environment so we are relying on memberships to build new tracks so please consider a 3 year membership. Membership prices will be increasing next year too so a saving in the long run.
Please keep an eye out on here and FB for when memberships go live.
Hi everyone. So what does level 3 mean to us all? Nothing. It’s still the same as level 4. The forest is closed and logging is commencing again this week.
However whilst the majority of riders kept out of the forest in level 4, some did not and forestry management are aware of this. Yes there’s cameras in there and also tyre tracks. Some people just don’t understand what “FOREST CLOSED KEEP OUT” means!!!
We are awaiting to hear if we will have Sunday riding access only again and we are hoping that this small minority of d*ckheads did not spoil it for the rest of us.
Maraetai Forest is only open for riding on Sundays!!! DO NOT ENTER ON ANY OTHER DAY OF THE WEEK – this could jeopardise our Sunday access.
Great news!!! We have been able to keep Fools Gold and Prospectors open. All signage and tape is up now, it should be obvious where you can’t go.
Here’s where you can ride:
Mon, Tues and Thursday its XC time, head over to our good friends at Totara Park and smash out a few laps. Wed, Friday and Saturday its time to get the Enduro/DH bikes out and throw a few whips down Pink Stoat and all the other epic tracks out at 440 Bike Park. Free up track for PCBC members but you may as well do a few shuttles rides as well when you’re out there! Sunday, there’s no place like home. Maraetai is open for business. Yellow tracks below are open, red are closed and blue is the new up line (plus there’s the out-the back tracks for the truly adventurous) . Get into it!
iI there’s tape across track/signage etc then its closed and keep out.
REMINDER! Last weekend for general riding access to Maraetai forest. It will be closed for 2 months for logging. Make the most of it.
The good news is we have negotiated on-going Sunday only riding access to the majority of the tracks (not Sneaky, Ground Effect, Lower Tunnel and probably not Prospectors/Fools) -just finalising details and will let you know more next week.
