lol.

Hills are one of the problems with attracting young fullas and women into racing here, the MTB parks require some climbing. If it's not a 15min+ climb, it's a steep one. I think Wainui would work, but not sure how many would drive there mid-week?

It's not an easy mix finding Council approval + Close to Town + good for casual riders. Macleans is a goodie as are some other places

more like those sickos in BushLove have scared all the other racers off - turning up to a race to have your eye's affronted by Nick_K etc in lurid coloured skinsuits would put anyone off! :satan:

Singletrack, mainly around Danzig and Sweetacres

http://tracks.org.nz/area/show/11

Lots of farm track linking other isolated sections of singletrack

There is a small group that have started digging in the area in the last year or so

WTP is not far across the other side of the valley. Pick your route and the traffic isn't bad at all
