The Whanganui Mountain Bike Club organises rides most Sundays. The rides vary somewhat in experience and fitness level, but are generally suitable for beginners. The club members share transport and help each other out in case of mechanical failure or other mishap. On club rides there is always a senior member who knows the route so there is little risk of getting lost or stranded, unless we intend to… 😉

The leisurely scenic ride on the sandy tracks and forest roads in and around Harakeke forest are often the club’s go-to destination if nothing more adventurous has been planned. The ride starts at the Lake Wiritoa domain carpark, is about 25km and takes 2.5 – 3 hrs with lots of stops. Canine mates welcome on certain rides, but only if super fit please. Generally the distance is too far for the average dog.

The rides will be anounced a few days in advance via email to all the club’s members. If you are not a member yet and want to know more about our rides call Frank on 021-944560 or email
