Tumeke is a great trail with lots of choice & features. Hand built by volunteers who really put in all the fine detail. Tumeke meaning too much or awesome, it really is awesome to ride.

Tumeke starts directly opposite the top of The Doctor. This section hasn't officially been open, but already is well ridden. It starts off with some tables that can be rolled or jumped by anyone, before merging with Upper Tumeke. From here it changes and is able to follow the terrain a lot more naturally.

At the next junction the left line takes you closer to the gate with lots of great hand built berms, while the right gives you the option to loop back into Spicer Link to head out for another lap and offers something similar to the section before it.

Access Info

-Directly from Raiha Street Gate climb Farm Road and onto Boundary Road.

-Make your way there entirely on singletrack by following Spicer Link south, then up The Doctor.

      Mostly dry. The very bottom has an unexpected rut I’ll watch out for next time.
