Bulls Area Riders, Input Neeeded

Postby SamKnight on Thu 9/Jul/09 5:33pm

Hi all,

I'm talking to the council next week about upgrading the skatepark, and possibly building some dirt jumps, a dirt skatepark and pump track, if any locals want to have input for this PM me or leave a message here.

Cheers
Sam

hi Sam

Great to see you are interested in getting things happening in Bulls for riders.

Have you thought about working with the Manawatu MTB club to have a bigger voice?

The club is settig up a DH group to try and develop and manage DH related activities in the region. This includes improvements for the Palmy jump park.

I'm already meeting with the council next week at the site to talk about what i'd like to see happen, so far all 3 people from the council i have talked to seem really keen to upgrade it.

Meeting went well, they've taken on board a few ideas and i'm drawing up a new skate park on cad. The wind turbines are not that close to bulls.

If your meaning the landfill dirt jumps then at the moment we are currently going over ideas with what to do with it. Hopefully get rid of that limestone stuff.

GloryDHO - are you working with the council and mtb club with sorting the palmy jumps?
Sorry I'm not sure if you are one of the young fellows who has been getting involved with the club dh activities and sub committee.
We have a DH mtb committee representative who it may be worth talking do if you haven't already.

If you contact the right person the council will most likely be willing to help if possible.

Yeah this is adam. (the one that got their face smashed in at the dirt jumps lol)
I'm working with Bill. I've been at most of the Awapuni track builds and am trying to come up with a solution for the jumps. Bill has lots of carpet that he thinks he could put over the jumps. I think we're gonna start on them after the Awapuni trail is finished.
