City Mountain Bike Track Opens


Mountain bike riders will have two new tracks in the heart of the city with the completion of the Arch Hill Scenic Reserve mountain bike trails.
The two tracks – ‘Training Wheels’ for the whole family and ‘Twist and Shout’ for more advanced riders - will officially open this Sunday,

The council has worked in partnership with the Auckland Mountain Bike Club on the design and development of the trail to ensure it meets the needs of both beginners and advanced riders.

Councillor Greg Moyle, chairperson of the Arts, Culture and Recreation Committee, says: the trails will revive an underused park for the benefit of families and mountain bike enthusiasts alike and I hope we see plenty of cyclists using the new facility over the winter months.”
Marke Jennings-Temple, president of the Auckland Mountain Bike Club, said the trails were a great new facility for riders. “While it’s smaller than other tracks around the region, it will be a lot more convenient for a lot of people meaning they don’t have to drive for miles to go mountain biking. “This is a growing sport in Auckland and around the world so it’s good to see the council has built a track that’s accessible right in the heart of the city.”

    I’m very happy with the new Arch Hill Scenic Reserve mountain bike trails. Twist and Shout is challenging although just 10 minutes long. Training Wheels is good for my friend’s 7 year old. I’m glad the council listened to the people. I’d like to see another longer trail opened.
