Dusty Trails (at last)

Welcome to summer! It finally feels like the weather has joined the programme, and summer is here with a vengeance. The trails are dusty, and we're just about to kick into the 2023 Wellington Enduro Series. Our first event is running this weekend, and if you've been on the fence (or on holiday elsewhere), there are still a few entries available.

We've also got entries open for the second round of the season - the BAMBAduro. And finally, the Capital Enduro is coming to Mākara Peak on the 11th and 12th of February, and is looking for volunteers to help out. More details below

All events run by the Wellington MTB Club are fund raisers for the areas we race in. The club keeps $5 from each entry, and after costs all the remaining proceeds go to the trail areas. This means that there's between two and five grand going to volunteer trail groups to maintain and build more of the trails we love. So come out and enjoy a great day on the trails, grab a sausage afterwards, and bank some of that lovely karma. See you on the trails!

The first round in the 2023 Wellington Enduro Series is on at Mākara Peak this weekend. We've got a great course for both hard and easy course, and with the newly opened upper Pōhatu section, there will be some great racing.

The course has just been announced, and it'll be a blast on a heap of new and old-school tracks.

May be an image of map and text that says "(3) Shared Track Zacs (7) Hard Track Varleys (6) Hard Track Vertigo (2) Shared Track Pohatu (4) Hard Track Lower Starfish (1) Easy Track SWIGG (5) Hard Track Lower Leaping Lizard 1-Int 3-Int 3- 4 -SWIGG Hard-Pohatu Hard- Zacs Hard- Lower Starfish Hard -Lower Leaping Lizard Vertigo Hard Varleys 6- 7-"

If you want to enter, we've got a few spaces available at the Welly MTB Club website. If you've already entered, and want to change the course you're racing, drop us an email at president@wmtbc.org.nz and we'll sort you out.

See you Saturday morning!


The team at BAMBA have been hard at work upgrading the Wētā trail (and keeping the grass under control) in anticipation of the 2023 edition of the BAMBAduro, which will be held on the 19th of February. Entries are available now at the Welly MTB Club Website, with the usual discount for club/Trails Wellington members. 

And with a February date, there's a 37% greater change that we'll miss the semi-regular super-slick trails. In any case, the sausages and coke afterwards will be the perfect compliment for the "I would have been faster if..." banter. We hope to see you there.

Capital Enduro Seeking Volunteers

The Capital Enduro is coming to town on the 11th and 12th of February. It's going to be a great weekend of racing, and we'll be showing some of our best trails in Karori to racers from all over the country. The organisers hope to build this into a Enduro World Cup event, so look to see a lot more here.

Intrinsic events who are organising the race are looking for volunteers to help on the day (there's an easy race on the Saturday, and Hard on the Sunday). If you're available, or you've always wanted to see the country's fastest racers on the trails that you ride, this is your chance. Volunteers will receive a merch kit from one of the sponsors, a good packed lunch, and refreshments on return to the race village. If you're able to help, please pop your details into the volunteer registration form, and the organisers will be back in contact.
