Welcome to the Porirua Grand Traverse MTB Course for 2018

following a myriad of hidden trails around Porirua, with terrain ranging from single track to farmland, forests, ridge tops and cycle paths. Parts of the course are on private land not normally open to the public. It's starts with a loop in Takapuwahia Reserve (Ngati Toa land) with some climbing, single-track and sweet sweeping downhill. Then you pass back through HQ again before following cycle paths to the awesome single-track networks on Colonial Knob/Rangituhi, then a big climb to the top before more single-track for the descent back to transition.

the MCG crew have done a sterling job fixing up the seepage bogs that had appeared so running nice with usual sneaky wet patches to watch out for in the lower trees
