Welcome toHB MOUNTAIN BIKE CLUB
Hawke's Bay Mountain Bike Club Incorporated (HBMTBC), was founded in 1991; gained full time access into the privately owned Pan Pac Tangoio Forest in 1995; and became an incorporated society in 1998. The HBMTBC is affiliated to Mountain Bike New Zealand (MTBNZ) and is one of New Zealand’s largest cycling clubs with annual membership of approx 2200.
The club’s ‘home’ is the internationally famous Pan Pac Mountain Bike Park, currently with approx 44km of trails spread over approx 530ha (Mill + Replanted blocks only) of private forestry, located just 10 minutes drive north of Napier.
Our MissionTo promote, facilitate, encourage and develop Mountain Biking in the Hawke’s Bay region.
Post Cyclone Gabrielle
Post the water subsiding, the initial inspection of the Main Park reported that EVERY track, approx. 75km of established trails, was impacted with land slips and/or trees littering the tracks, which as you can appreciate, will take a significant amount of time and effort to reinstate. At present, HB MTB have no tracks in the Pan Pac MTB trail network that are rideable.
Getting our MTB community back out on their bikes is a priority for the Club . We know we have passionate people waiting who will roll up their sleeves and start the rebuild, we just need the tools and funding to enable both our volunteers and paid track builders to get things moving. We all know that our bikes bring us that much needed ‘joy’ during times of difficulty! We need our park back!!
We would appreciate any support you can offer and hope, in time, you can head to HB and ride the trails you have supported.
The forest is currently CLOSED following Cyclone Gabrielle.
