An open day at the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park from 12 noon to 5pm on

up some tips and techniques from experienced riders. 

 

 

The public can follow the park map and ride independently, or make a
booking to join a free one-hour guided trip lead by an experienced rider. There
are tracks for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders.  A qualified technician will be providing free
bike checks.
