In 2009 the Belmont Area Mtb Association (BAMBA) was established to promote the interests of mountain bikers and other recreational users of the Belmont Regional Park. The park covers 3500 hectares of hills and valleys between Porirua and Hutt Valley. The Ground Effect Slush Fund first supported track development in the park in 2007 with $1000 cash for the purchase of tools. The mountain bike trail network is located in the ex-Danzig Forest area that was harvested in 2011 by Greater Wellington Regional Council and re-designated for mountain bike trails. In 2013 the Council agreed to rebuild the popular 'Danzig climb', and clear the debris from the 'Choppers' and 'Big Weta' descents. In the meantime BAMBA finished a couple of trails outside the logging zone. Ground Effect met the $400 shortfall in funds to purchase some new tools for the job. And the Bull Run was finished off too.
