Park Information


The Waitangi Mountain Bike Park is a community mountain bike park. It has been built by the efforts of our community and is for the benefit of our whole community.

Every user is encouraged to register to ride by making a minimum annual donation of $40 per adult, $25 per child (14 years and under). This money will go towards trail maintenance and is vital for the sustainability of the Park. Donors will receive a map and two coloured plastic tags. One tag is for your bike – very uncool to be seen without one – and a smaller one for your key ring to be flashed around town.
Many businesses in the Bay of Islands have volunteered incentives to encourage bike riders to donate in this way. The key tag is their way of knowing who you are. The tag colour changes each year, we will send you a reminder when your tag is about to expire.
