    Trail&Track riding venue North Wairarapa

    Winter huh? Sod all rides on Silver-bullet. Hmm, what to do? Well Iíd seen this place advertised. Seemed like a long way to drive from Wellington for a 15km track.
    But desperation & all that. $30 a day or $50 for the weekend.
    Heck can make a weekend of it.
    Accommodation is like $30 for bunkrooms. And the host will cook a roast or whatever & breakfast all for not very much money.

    Wasnít expecting much, but got the other end of the scale. The hall is a converted woolshed with lots of wood slab tables etc. Fireplace. Can sleep up to 30, ok in bunks but there you go. The food however was fantastic and you could not grumble about the cost. She made maybe the best desert Iíve had. OK Iíd had a few beers by then but it was right up there.

    It gets blowy up there, real blowy, but the track is somehow out of it for the most part. Check on Castlepoint weather forecast which seems to be well different from say Masterton.

    The Trails? Well mid winter it was quite muddy so if it was 15k it felt like a lot longer. OK itís not the best ride Iíve been on but it is far removed from the worst & Iíll be going back for sure. Check site for dates it runs. Suspect the mud will dry enough from now to make it a real blast, I was a bit tired from paddling a fair bit.
    In the summer it may be a little easy, but itís a lot better than not riding & the weekend experience of it was the highlight.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.
    Everybody listen, voices in my head
    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    With Tussock Buster cancelled we needed a consolation. Trail and Track weekend then.

    Shit what an awesome setup. Much easier in the dry but it was still fun slinging through the s's. Back home totally spent. Outrageous value for money.

    We compiled all tracks in NZ in one list. Only tracks not included are Club MX Tracks that are not open on regular basis (some of them only when there is a MX, some one or two practice days/month).

    Here (there is quite a few...): https://www.mxvinny.com/mx-training-tracks

    I have this plan of doing them all and writing a review... --- but that will have to wait until tomorrow...

    May the bridges I burn light the way.
