Dh In Palmy?

Postby jerms669 on Mon 20/Dec/10 12:53pm

What is the state of DH riding in PN these days?
Does K-loop still exist or did the logging kill it?
Couldnt find much info on the palmy scene when I was searching... no activity since april?

Cheers for any info :)

The bottom 3/4 of the downhill track is still there. I believe logging is due to start again early in the New Year (6th Jan) which will close riding during weekdays - but still open weekends. How much effect this will have on your preferred trails is dependent on where they next start logging...

Was riding good, up-in-till the recent rain. Hopefully it will dry out soon and we can get some more good rides in before the loggers take over.

Long term this will be great for PN as we get to rebuild the tracks ... possibly with some funding... and replanting will be with native trees. Just a shame we can't swap out the clay soil :crazy: :lol:

PM me if you want some locals to ride with. Only the top 30ish metres have been logged so far. Or theres always Levin DH which is way more fun!

The K-loop downhill is pretty good, but don't go just after allot of rain, last time I was there, there was a quite long clay section that would be a bitch in the wet.
