The New Plymouth Mountain Bikers club aims to grow the number of mountain bikers in Taranaki through regular rides, races and events and building and advocating for more MTB trails in the region.

Joining the club will give you a group of people to go riding with, access to skills workshops, trail information, group rides, races and other events as well as help support local trail building and education programmes.

New Plymouth Mountain Bikers will be affiliated to Mountain Bike NZ for 2017 and to Cycling New Zealand, so your membership extends to New Zealand’s national cycling bodies.  Mountain Bike New Zealand (MTBNZ) are the national body for mountain biking in New Zealand and are responsible for leading the development and growth of both competitive and recreational mountain biking.  Our affiliation with Cycling NZ provides the club with comprehensive liability insurance cover.
