WMBC is a nonprofit organisation, we are here for creation and strategy of Mountain Bike single track throughout Waiheke for use by residents and visitors to Waiheke Island. The club is made up from volunteers from the local community, to date the track building team has put many hours in the bush with lots of trees, sun, sweat, tears and some great riding. The WMBC is a very go ahead volunteer group for the community recognised by the Auckland City Council.
We encourage the community to get out and enjoy the spaces around Waiheke Island whilst doing a positive exercise for the body. This is a first for the Waiheke community and with thanks the Auckland City Council for providing funding and support for the development of the tracks at the Onetangi Sports Park.
Part of the development funds were set aside for planting trees which the club had now funded and planted over 150 native trees which has been landscaped into the family track.
Both tracks are allowing riders opportunities to learn skills associated with mountain biking from bike maintenance, track building, ecology and competitive racing. We encourage and foster competitive riding with events and skills training camps.
The strategy moving forward is to encourage as many people from the community and visitors to a 1st class single track which will encompass more riding areas and cycleway’s on Waiheke..
