Use to ride the Akatarawa's alot in the 70's, we would go in through the Maungatooks, some awesome hill climbs, camping and drinking rum....lots of rum....cant stand the shit now.
QVMX.....Australia's #1 VMX club......leading the way.

Favourite riding spot for us that own trials bikes, we take a couple of litres of fuel in a small backpack & spend any where up to 8hours  riding. We can completely disappear from the main tracks in there for all but the first & last 1/4 hour of any ride ;D
