The Wairoa Gorge Mountain Bike Park riding season grand opening is the 18th of September 2021.


After a very wet winter and lockdown, roads into the park are open and thanks to a large army of Nelson Mountain Bike Club volunteers and Gorge crew who have groomed and cleared the 70km of single-track, the trails are in mint condition.


Excitement is building amongst the riding community for a great season at The Gorge with new options for the 2021/22 season.

  • First up is The Gorge express shuttle on our new Yamaha Viking 6-seater side x side that will be one of the hot tickets for the season – do as many shuttles as you can between 9am and 2pm.

  • For E-Bike fans, The Gorge offers a single shuttle up where the e-biker can access some of the best grade 3-4 single track climbing and riding in New Zealand.

  • Great new affordable pricing caters for non-NMTBC members and out of town visitors.

  • Great discounts for NMTBC club members.

  • New accommodation options at Barry’s Hut and Gibbs Lodge.
