A collection of fresh tracks open to Manawatu MTB club members only. If you live in Palmerston North then join the club and check them out.
Here’s a scenic, mostly downhill trip for riders in search of gravel roads and a bit of grass track.
There are three rides based around the Carterton Mountain Bike Park. Two that are great for kids, and one big climb up Mt Dick for fitness seekers.
A short purpose-built track at the eastern edge of the Manawatu Gorge.
Another little beauty courtesy of the high-country tenure review process; this ride provides breathtaking views across Lake Wanaka.
This is an easy gravel-road ride through a spectacular wind farm.
This track follows the lake front from Wanaka township to Glendhu Bay.
This is an old-school ride for those who love the outdoors. The track must be dry to be fully ridable. Start by riding over Swampy Summit and then past the old Green Hut site and down Mountain Track Road to Semple Road.
This is a small, community-led mountain bike park with loads of cool tracks and more on the way.
Old farm tracks in the Bendigo Conservation Area make for an excellent test of lungs and brakes.
