Due to a slip on the Karapoti Gorge - We will now start at the Locked Gate at the end of Bulls Run Road - past the Motorcross Park, Then explore this amazingly varied forest. All types of quads are welcome. Please consider the conditions are likely to be wet and cold if you have 2 wheel drive.

Parking and unloading quads will be at a new location - arranged at late notice by Vic. Please be very conscious of damage to the paddock as we hope to have access to this safe parking again in future . Bring warm clothing, lunch & drinks.

Members from Horowhenua, Manawatu and the West Coast be entering the track from the Maungatukuku gate.

Both Groups will meet at their start locations at 8.30 sharp and head off at 8.45 sharp - to meet at the Orange Hut at 10.00 for Reg's mandatory "Morning Tea".

Be on time as Vic (Bulls Run Road) and Reg (Maungatukutuku) will be leaving on time.

Seriously - we will be sticking tightly to this schedule so please pack on Friday, check your quads, equipment and clothing and be on time.


The tracks will be a mix of B's, and C's so be prepared for a variety of terrain and bogs.
