Haggis Basher Details
Haggis Basher (Grade 4 Intermediate)
This is a technical XC track, so named after someone managed to “bash their haggis” while misjudging a rock drop on the track (and an event called the Haggis Basher). This track was used in anger for the 2000 Masters Games, where many of the more roadie focussed riders walked their bikes down the course, to jeers and hoots from spectators. Built in 1998 by Mark, Chris, Trev and others. Named by Chris Arbuckle.
From the OCTAGON, head north along George St all the way to the GARDENS SHOPPING AREA, drive along the Northern flank of the Dunedin Botanic Gardens on OPOHO RD, then up the hill on to SIGNAL HILL RD. Keep to the tar seal until you see the monument. Just below the monument there are a number of tracks that branch, down, across. The Big Easy climbing track also finishes here. There's a notice board on the top of the Roller Coaster which should help you find your way.
