Danzig is a great wee track, the ride out there is dull though.

As long as declans sorted my bike out I'd be keen.

Just keep in mind that the corners on danzig get slippery as wet death on a stick when it's been drizzling for about 15 minutes.

Apart from that it's all goodness...

The last 4 days I have been coming through this track. Starts at the top of Belmont regional park, just off dowse drive. Comes out at Cornish Street by the bowland on the motorway. The track follows the stream in the valley in the pic (if you look hard enough you can see the track). Pretty easy ride but nice and quick. I think this track is nicknamed mill stream track as the dams were built for public water supply and for the local mill there back in the day.

correct.
also, you are right. the trail doesnt start at the the top of maungaraki/normandale, its just the piece that I always do which has a short, fun tree area which makes its way down to the dam interstection. Good for a quick ride after work or what-have-you.

*AHEM*

I'm fairly sure it's Phunk's last wednesday night ride in wellington tomorrow, (well, for a while anyway) so let's make it a goodie!

Makara carpark at 6:00ish for gas-bagging, departure around 6:15 :thumbsup:

Perhaps we should sort out what tracks we want to ride at the time :)
