The Whakatane Mountain Bike Club literally had their work cut out from under them in 2011 when logging crews moved through the Rawhiti Block tracks. The upside is the sudden proliferation of new tracks forming the Rawhiti Mountain Bike Park. Ground Effect supplied a heavy-duty scrub cutter to turn the tide.
A message from the club... unfortunately the park recieved a significant amount of damage courtesy of Cyclone Cook. There are a large number of trees down making it difficult and unsafe to ride. They will advise when they can get back in.
Access to the Rawhiti Mountain Bike Park requires an annual membership or temporary pass. Find the good oil at www.sporty.co.nz/whakatanemtb.
