A better, more extensive network of mountainbiking trails will be developed at Woodpecker Forest near Palmerston North to replace the trails lost because of harvesting of pine trees there.

Manawatu Mountainbiking Club committee member Bill Russell said the rebuilding process would start this winter.

There were about 12km of mountainbiking trails in the forest, and the total length would be extended to 15km to 18km, he said.
