Marlborough Mtb Club

20 June 2023

The Marlborough Mtb Club manages an extensive network of trails. The Wither Hills Mtb Park is a dedicated 65 hectare area catering to all skill levels within the Wither Hills Farm Park administered by the Marlborough District Council. Club members are also lucky enough to have access to tracks on private land at Homebrook and in the Taylor Pass Forest. Plus a passionate group of locals look after the Picton trails on The Snout.

The club recently requested some 'loose change' from the Slush Fund to cover the $2353 shortfall in cash required to purchase a 1.7t Yanmar digger. Next year it will be put to work on the trail network in the Taylor Pass Forest. But in the meantime the digger will be hard at work getting the trails at Wither Hills and Homebrook ready for the club to host the 2023 Skoda National School Mtb Championships in October.

Keep an eye on the goings on at the club via Facebook and at www.marlboroughmountainbikeclub.co.nz.

In 2021 the Marlborough Mtb Club approached the Ground Effect Slush Fund for $1000 cash to purchase a couple of weed eaters to help spruce up the enduro and DH tracks at Homebrook. The tracks at Homebrook provide local riders with a range of grade four and five trails that are not available at the Wither Hills Mtb Park.

Back in 2017 the Slush Fund gave $1000 to the club to help with the purchase of tools for the keen trail builders of all ages at the club.

They worked with a local tool manufacturer, who built different sized tools suitable for kids and adults, plus purchased some Weapons of mass Creation from Trail Fund NZ.
