Kerikeri Mountain Bike Club is proud to be the most awesome Mountain Bike club for miles around!
Our members help to build a vibrant MTB community in the Bay of Islands.
Our home is Whitehills Forest. Hand-crafted and machine built tracks, for intermediate to expert riders, weave through plantation and native forest. Covering a range of terrain, from technical, rooty and off camber tracks to smooth berms and jumps, there is an adventure around every corner.
Whitehills Forest, State Highway 10, is 8 km north of Waipapa. It is a private forest, owned and managed by Summit Forests NZ, so you will need a membership or day pass to ride the MTB tracks.
We share the forest with other groups including hunters, so the forest is closed for riding and track building every Thursday and 1st Saturday of each month to allow hunters to do their thing.
Kiwi and Kauri live here so leave the dog at home and use the Kauri wash station on your way in and out.
The club is affiliated to Mountain Bike NZ Cycling NZ and MTBNZ

Rides are suitable for riders who have a reasonable level of fitness and are flexible to cater for a mix of abilities. Riders on Tuesday Club Rides need to be at least 16 years old or accompanied by a parent or adult who has agreed to take responsibility for them. During the winter months we usually ride for a couple hours and decent MTB lights are essential for evening rides.
We have our very own shuttle truck and trailer so run pop-up shuttles when the conditions are right.
The club fosters skills development in a social environment, with group rides, events and activities.
All funds go back into providing riding trails and mountain biking opportunities.
