Weekend Ride Change for this Sunday

posted Aug 6, 2010, 4:55 AM by Manawatu MTBClub
The planned ride up to Mangahao Dams this sunday has been changed. We have reports that the road is in pretty bad condition due to logging truck operations and this along with the forecast for showers and strong winds has lead to the following ride alternatives.
Option 1.
For those whom want a bit of a hillclimb type workout, Colin Knight will be leading a ride down to Levin. There is a good short sharp climb up Trig Road ,but once at top,  an interesting selection of single tracks to challenge skills and eventually bring you back down to the carpark area.
Still meet at Crank It Cycles, Cuba Street, Palm. North ..9.00am Sunday 8th August for this ride.
Contact Colin Knight on 06 323 5230 for any further details.
Option 2.
For a more leasurely type ride, meet at our winter riding area at Santoft Forest for a guided blast around the trails there. I'll be at Santoft at 2.00pm to take this ride.
To get to the forest, take SH3 through Bulls towards Wanganui.
Approx 10km from Bulls turn left onto SANTOFT ROAD.
Stay on this road for 10km. The entry to forest is on left,at gate with rural No: 1021.
Any queries please phone or txt me on 021 447 596
