Thanks to everyone who completed our survey - the results make interesting reading.  We got a great response and have gathered some very useful information that is already helping the club plan its activities for the next year. Overall, respondents said that they wanted to see the Queenstown Mountainbike Club:
  • creating more cross country singletrack,
  • advocating more access to existing trails
  • maintaining momentum in building new downhill trails and 7 mile trails
  • maintaining the existing trail network
Here is a more detailed breakdown of what you said to us...
