Welcome to the Heaphy Tracker, mouthpiece of the Heaphy Mountain bike trial. Big news this month is of course the launch of our smashing newsletter here, followed closely by the return of bikers to the Heaphy scene. The ultimate mountain bike trial has commenced and 15 months of riding, over the next three years, will decide the future of the track.
So, pedalling pioneers, what’s it like to cycle the Kahurangi Ranges after the forsaken years? Is it really the Milford Track of bikeland? Did trampers and bikers arrive hand in hand over the bluffs or was there carnage out there? We want your point of view to help bring the heaphy track out of the wilderness while this trial gets underway.
Remember folks, this is only a trial, which will end with major discussion, debate and decision, so best to bring the track’s profile into the open from Day 1.
The Heaphy Tracker will publish monthly and will broadcast your pictures, advice and experiences to anyone with a Heaphy interest. Fill out the suggestion box up top and drop into any of the featured businesses or email us: heaphytrackerlive [dot] com, to be included in next month’s edition of the Heaphy Tracker. Our website is under construction and an online forum and e-newsletters will follow. Until next month enjoy the ride, get in touch and spread the word. The Heaphy Tracker is here!
