Clinton and Rob Plimmer were on their way to Rotorua yesterday when Clinton got a text to say that it was pouring with rain down there, so instead of carrying on they decided to go and check out the Mountain Bike track at Pukete in Hamilton.
They were greeted by a 10 km circuit of trails. This used to be one of Hamiltons old rubbish tips and the council have given the MTB club use of the land. The trails are all singletrack and compared to Puni they are a bit easier and more spread out – a good option for taking the family out for the day. The only downfall is that it is near the sewerage ponds so the odour isn’t the most pleasant but it’s not the end of the world.
