The Belmont Area Mountain Bike Association (BAMBA) was established in 2009 as an incorporated society (later becoming a charitable trust) to promote the interests of mountain bikers and other recreational users of the Belmont Regional Park.
The purpose of BAMBA is to:
- Advocate the interests of mountain bikers with in the Belmont Regional Park.
- Liaise with the Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC), Friend of Belmont Regional Park (FoBRP), and other interested parties.
- Establish, maintain, enhance, and preserve mountain biking and multi-use trails, while minimizing environmental impact.
- Ensure continued access to existing trails with a view to extend access to other areas of the park.
- Maintain a long term view of the trail requirements as part of the Trail Network Plan.
About Belmont Regional Park
