20-25mins ride from Matiatia ferry terminal. Head from ferry terminal up to Oneroa shops, ride on through main Rd towards Ostend, through Ostend past Woolworths (down the hill on the left), up the other side, 5 mins past Woolies on the main Rd out to Onetangi you hang a right at turn off heading to Rocky Bay, then hang first left to Onetangi Sports Park.

MTB trails start 100m back from the Sports ground buildings on the right!!! Signposted from there! If you see some locals riding ask them where the rest of the trails are!?! Make a day of it!

Head to 'Lure' cafe on the way in Oneroa for phenomenal coffee for early morning pick up, on the way back pop in to Sand Bar on Oneroa Beach for a beer, ferries go on the hour every hour!!! Magic day out!

Plans for trail park are huge! Watch this space, on the door step to AK this will become our newest playground!

Enjoy , )

Pity i missed the ride on the weekend due to bike maintenance issues ... alas ...
I am definitely keen to head out there for a day over the silly season holidays.

Anybody else keen to make a day of it?!?! Let's organise group ride out on The Island!
Midweek wold be awesome for those not working but still in Ackl; else weekends for those unfortunate souls not lucky enough to be on leave over the holidays.

i currently have the following days available
24 Dec
28 - 31 Dec
11 - 17 Jan

I'm a local Waihekeian resident MTB'er, would be happy to conduct a bit of guided 'trail tour' on 28 Dec for those interested. Then once you're familiar with where the trails are you can head back anytime in future with the local knowledge! Let me know who's keen? First two riders that get back to me will even score a free car+bike on rack ride from Matiatia to trail park & drop off back to ferry!!

If I'm in town that week, which I probably will be (and providing I have the all clear to get back on the bike too), I could be up for some riding at waiheke :thumbsup:
