Welcome to the Hamilton Mountain Bike
10 minutes from downtown Hamilton is Pukete Farm Park, home to the Hamilton Mountain Bike Club and a 10km network of amazing single track. The park is full of twists and turns and can be ridden by riders of all levels.
Established in 1989 the Hamilton Mountain Bike Club has worked literally thousands of hours to create the track network and keep it maintained for free public and club use. It’s all done by volunteers so joining the club or a donation are great ways to help us continue this development.
During the year the Hamilton Mountain Bike Club run a number of events, both competitive and social so don’t worry if you think its all about racing, its not.
Summer see’s the always popular ‘Summer Series’ run on a Wednesday evening with competitive and social grades. This series has races both before and after Christmas. Please Note: All or some parts of he track may be run in reverse direction on certain race nights, please be aware of this and take extra care on these race evenings.
Fostering young riders at competitive and social levels is a key part of the club with youth development squad for the competitive, and many casual family group rides and events for those who simply enjoy riding. Many of the social rides are organized by club members rather than at committee level and are always well supported and fun to attend.
Events away from the clubs track that are attended include favorites like:
- The Moon Ride
- The Black Stump Adventure
- The Day Night Thriller
- Colville Connection
- nDuro Series
- and many more…
Being part of the club puts you in contact with other MTB enthusiasts and gives you a chance to enjoy your sport at a local level. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a social or competitive rider – the club has something for everyone.
For less than the cost of a family visit to the movies you can join the club for a whole year – and we reckon theres no where else you could have this much fun for so little money!
Your membership helps to pay for track improvements, park maintenance and fuel for Scrub-cutters, weed-spray etc.
Please note that the track is one direction only, for everyone’s safety please follow the arrows.
