Introducing BAMBA

The Belmont Area Mountain Bike Association (BAMBA) was recently established as an incorporated society to promote the interests of mountain bikers and other recreational users of the Belmont Regional Park (BRP).

About Belmont Regional Park

Belmont Regional Park covers 3500 hectares of hills and valleys between Porirua and Hutt Valley, including the 1200 hectare Waitangirua Farm. Points of interest within the park include: Korokoro Dam, World War II ammunition magazines, and part of the original Old Coach Road. Spectacular views of the park and beyond are on offer from several peaks including Boulder Hill, Round Knob, Cannons Head, and Belmont Trig.

We welcome any party to approach us with help in any way.

Membership

Membership of BAMBA is free and open to anyone interested in the Belmont Regional Park. A key role for BAMBA will be advocating the interests of mountain bikers within Belmont Regional Park, in terms of continuing access to tracks, maintenance of tracks, and potentially building more tracks. The more members that BAMBA has, the more influence it will have with the Greater Wellington Regional Council and other stakeholders, so please sign up. While formal membership procedures are being established contact info@bamba.org.nz, with your name and email address and we’ll add you to the membership list.

Working Bee / Trail Building – Sunday May 1st. 9am – 12pm.

Reminder this coming Sunday (1st MAY ) – 9 am till 12pm.
Work is now in earnest on the new connector – 4 Degrees to Weta etc. Were busy bowling out stumps prior to benching.
If you require a lift to the site a vehicle or two will be leaving at 9 am from End of Old Coach Road. (OCR) Normandale.
 
 IMPORTANT NOTE TOO ALL:  For this date we are required to make access via OCR – off Normandale road and need to go down and come back up the logging road too due to the Iron Man being held that same day in the park.
(They have a transition area at the woolshed and Ranger has stated we need to come in Via OCR at Normandale)
This will mean either parking and biking in along OCR or getting a lift at 9 am with those who have a 4WD and park at Weta Entrance then walk a tad like we did last working bee gone.
(Note however that 4WD Vehicles will be required to go in as one group together and come out as one group as gate must be locked).
Otherwise you will need to make your own way there via bike of foot!
Go along OCR and down Slogger logger track (gravel road) and take the link on the left (directly opposite Weta entrance) make your way to where Black Ute is parked!.
Hope to see you there.
