Its been all go at Bike Taupo as per usual and so we thought you all might like a little progress update!
First off, a big shout out to the funding organisations who support us getting our projects underway. Now that the underpass number one is all completed, we begin work on number two! This underpass will be beneath Craters Road, twin tubes (in and out) to eliminate road crossing when going from the car park over to Tankstand, via Hammer and Nail It.
The tubes will be purchased soon so you may see them sitting in the car park while we continue working on funding for "the hole" to put them into! We would like to say a BIG THANKS to Craters of the Moon Trust, The Lion Foundation and Grassroots for their support of this project so far (hopefully there will be more to thank upon completion of the project!!) :) :)
This is Cath Oldfield aka "Lady bike" with a couple of her little star bikers!
We all know what a fabulous job Cath does with the children in the Taupo community. Cath's role is funded by a variety of organisations who assist to keep her on the road and visiting our schools. Just recently we have received assistance from the good buggers at Pak and Save who have donated funds enabling us to purchase some new helmets and bikes. Good on ya Pak n Save!!
The new O2K (Orakau to Kinloch) loop is about 1.3km on it's journey to exit onto Kawakawa Rd near Whangamata Rd. Photo shows the current trail end under some pretty impressive bluffs. The new bridge is now in and when this track is completed it will make for a great riding loop connecting with Chinaman's and then back to Kinloch via Kawakawa Bay
Come and join us in Taupo for some awesome old school XC mountain biking. Courses are set, tracks are ready and waiting for you. Like us on facebook to keep up to date
