The Whakaumu Track, near Opotiki, Eastern Bay of Plenty has recently received some love from a bunch of enthusiastic volunteers. The track is estimated to be 130+ years old, properly last used 100 or so years ago. The volunteers approached Ground Effect via the Motu Trails Trust for some Slush Fund dough, and settled on spending the $1000 on a much needed culvert. Thanks to volunteer work totalling well over 700 hours there is now 4km of 98% rideable primo trail. We hear the trampers are super happy too.
