He’s Baaaaack!

Jumping Jack is back! Bigger, better and faster than before ready for you to throw down. Take it easy on the first few runs, as the top berms are still soft, these will compact over time and the track will get faster.
First a few ground rules:
1) If it is WET, e.g. raining or has been, we ask that you preserve our hard work and stay off it for a few days.
2) It’s a JUMP track! Not being rude but if you have no intention of jumping, please stay off this track until you have more skills and confidence. We would welcome you to attend our Thursday skills development at Panieri Park. All the jumps are well made and have no surprises, they all float you nicely over the gaps.
3) Don’t enter the track from part way down. Good riders will be approaching you at speed and there is the chance of getting torpedoed by a fast rider!
4) Please respect TRAIL CLOSED signs. Occasionally we may have to close the trail to do some maintenance tasks. We will aim to do these out of peak times, but neither you nor we, want to have you barreling down onto a work party fixing the trail!

This fantastic trail demonstrates the many hours of hard work put in by our club and trail crew. We hope you enjoy it and perhaps you enjoy it so much as to give your support so we can build more trail.
