Around 8 kilometres of off-road trails wind through the Sainsbury road forest west of the township of Pirongia. A kids track and pump track provide great off road children’s cycling, while tracks such as ‘Easy As’, ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Home and Away’ are great grade 2 (easy) Waikato mountain biking trails.
The intermediate grade trails include ‘Hard Labour’, ‘The Sorcerer’, ‘Tusker’ and ‘Not so easy’ which vary in length and wrap around the forestry access road.
With new tracks regularly in development, the available trails are always growing, providing something to suit all levels and abilities.
The Mt Pirongia trails have been developed by the Waipa Mountain Bike Club, which holds regular group rides and events on the trails. For more information visit www.waipamtb.org.nz
