Season of Shred Party set for 9th of December

Our annual SEASON OF SHRED (SOS) party is happening this year on Saturday, December 9th, 2017 from 3pm to 10pm at Wynyard Terrain Park in conjunction with the Through The Loop Enduro race!

Come help us kick off the season in style with a BBQ, bars, live music, rad local riders and HEAPS of amazing prizes to be won in our raffle. This is always a major fundraiser for the club so make sure to tell your biking and non-biking friends.

The more the merrier!

Southern Trust awards QMTBC $10,000

The club would like to thank the Southern Trust, who has today approved our $10,000 funding application for a new climbing trail on the Wynyard side of Fernhill Loop!

The next stage of the project will be a flow/jump trail back to Wynyard jump park.

Work is scheduled for October by Tom Hey of Elevate Trail Building who have also discounted their price for the club.

Thanks again for the support.

Economic Impact Study Shows Mountain Biking Brings in Millions

The Mountain Scene reports that bikers are bringing in millions. We commissioned this study by TRC Tourism over a year ago and it shows the massive impact mountain biking has on Queenstown's economy. The study reports that $65 million is spent by mountain bikers in our town each year and $25 million stays in the town in the form of profits and wages. Thankyou to everyone who answered the questionnaire and a special thanks to those who volunteered to survey riders on their day off. This effort will really help our cause when it comes to obtaining funding to build you new trails. Queenstown MTB trail digging

7 Mile Upgrades

During May and June the QMTBC has an approved contractor doing some scheduled maintenance and upgrade works on the mountain bike trail network. (Kachoong, Cool Runnings, Eagles nest entry). Some access to tracks during this time will be limited or closed. Alternative detours will be in place. Please respect all closures for your own safety and do not enter a worksite without prior permission. Thanks for your cooperation and we look forward to riding as soon as its good to go. Dig - Respect - Ride. 7MileCarving
