Riverhead Evening Ride Mtb Trails – Robinson Road
Wednesday March 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every 3 weeks that begins at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until March 3, 2021
Register for this ride through the Auckland Cycling Group Meetups group.
These Riverhead rides are on unmaintained rough singletrack NOT on the gravel roads and will alternate on Wednesdays between the STRIP RD carpark, the FORESTRY RD carpark and the ROBINSON RD carpark so please take note of the location and also note that this is not the WCRC Compound so please don’t wait at that location.
These rides are not for beginners but for intermediate and above riders who have some mountain bike experience and want to step up from riding at Woodhill. No drop policy and will wait at junctions to re group.
Arrive by 5:15pm hit the trails at 5.30pm ride for approx 2 hours – no set tracks decided on, we will make a selection on the night.
*NOTE* There are no change or toilet facilities at any of the locations.
LOCATION: Riverhead Forest – Robinson Rd carpark, near Coatesville.
DIRECTIONS: Turn left off Coatesville Riverhead Highway just before Coatesville (if coming from Riverhead) on to Sunnyside Rd, then after 1.5km turn left on to Robinson Rd and drive another 1.5km to the end of the road to the carpark – the gate is directly ahead.

IMPORTANT: If there has been sustain rain in the 2-3 days leading up to a riding date then I may decide to cancel a specific ride due to the trail composition being clay based. When water logged the trails become to greasy to ride – ensure you check the comments section in the days leading up to the event to see if the ride is going ahead.
If anyone wants to carpool I suggest you mention it in the comments on meet ups and see who can help out.
Hope to see you out there – let me know by txt to the below number if you are going to be late.
