Great news just in from Jeff Carter at Southstar Trails. Make a donation and see another new trail added to the Redwoods!

Rotorua Mountain Bike Club requires your help to build a new 3.5km grade 3 trail, with two entrances: one from the shuttle drop off, the second via Frontal Lobotomy descending eastwards towards the Blue Lake. Southstar Shuttles is contributing 50% of the $30,000 total trail build. We want to give you the opportunity to fund the remainder.

The trail will feature long traverses that weave and roll across the face of the hill. The main riding line will be relatively smooth but will also include natural features on the side of the trail to make it more technical for advanced riders; banks will become wallrides, roots will become bump jumps. This trail will be an icon.
