Tracks in awesome condition for Easter Riding

Just to let you know that the tracks at Puni Memorial Park are in awesome condition at the moment. The tracks were tidied up prior to last weekends open day and are riding really nicely at the moment.

The pine needles have been cleared off the Cross country track and the grass cut so get out there and enjoy it while it is nice and dry!

Happy Easter!

Reasonable turnout for Open Day

Last Sunday saw the Club Open day, which was a meet and greet and a chance for people to ride the track, and a good excuse for a club BBQ.

Thanks to those of you who made the effort to come out and introduce yourselves and welcome to the new members!

The track was in awesome condition, it was recently cleared and the pine needles have been blown off the track  so it is great fun to ride at the moment

Here are a couple of photos of the day


Open Day this Sunday – 24 March

Franklin Mountain Bike Club Inc is to hold an open day this coming Sunday – 24 March at the Puni Memorial Reserve. Please come along and see what we have been working on and meet up with other club members – or join up if you’ve been meaning to but haven’t got around to it yet!

Schedule for the day is still to be confirmed but we were thinking of having a couple of hours dedicated to skills lessons for club members interested – come along and pick up some advice from Clinton Williams on how to ride the tracks

Start time likely to be 10am with sausages on the bbq at 1pm
