So just why is the main car park closed – well the following pictures should answer that question.
As part of the overall Awaba Mountain Bike Park project the Club needs to deliver some important improvements to the infrastructure to better set up the venue for years to come. When the car park is finished it will be less prone to erosion problems, provide improved preservation and encouragement of the native foliage around it, and allow for a more structured parking plan. Future major events will also benefit from this upgrade, including increased (level) room for competitors to use as pit area, etc.
To help us achieve the best final outcome we really need people to stay off the area until the koppers logs and top dressing of gravel are done in the next two weeks. To help with this we have provided an alternate way to access the trail head – follow the bunting and arrows.
Along with the Down Hill finish area this upgraded car park will present well to new users visiting the Awaba trails, and will showcase what the ultimate goal is with the whole park. In the meantime we are also continuing work on the new trails – an update on these will be provided soon.
