Welcome to the website for the Christchurch Singletrack Club, a club for mountain bikers interested in racing, trailbuilding, finding others to ride with and supporting the mountain bike community. One of the most useful pages is the calendar where you will find a listing of most mountainbike events that are happening around the place – very helpful when planning what you will do. On the Living Springs trail map page you will find information to help you find your way around there. Updates on day to day activities are often posted on our Facebook page (see the Latest News link).
The Christchurch Singletrack Club generally holds 3 short track races around October, 3 mini-XC races in early summer, 3 hillclimbs in late summer, a cross country race in early autumn, cyclocross races in the winter and has a midwinter social function. Rides are organised informally through the facebook rides page, or members can join the Canterbury MTB Club on one of their rides. There are some rides organised for beginners and children. The club has a strong contingent of competitive junior riders. Some years we host a round of the national cross country mountainbike series. Aside from all of that, club members are actively involved in trailbuilding projects on the Port Hills, at Halswell and Living Springs.
Living Springs Mountain Bike Trails Open Day
Come and ride at Living Springs on SUNDAY APRIL 7, 12 – 1.30 pm. More information here – http://www.singletrack.org.nz/living-springs-open-day/. We have recently spent a bit of time trimming back the grass, repairing a couple of bridges, and pruning back the vines so it is a great time to ride!
Cycle Surgery Vulcaniser – 9 March 2013 – thanks to those who rode, helped and sponsored
Living Springs Project
October 2012 – We have double fenced the access to our tracks from the Farm Park carpark thanks to a generous donation from Vorb. This will mean ample flat carparking for everyone with easy entrance and exit visibility. Thanks Vorb! And thanks to Texture Plants for the plants, and Living Earth for the mulch.
If you would like more info on these, txt or phone Greg on 027-5118273
Rather than reinvent the wheel, paid up CSC members are welcome to join the Canterbury Mountainbike Club on their club rides (but you’ll need to join their club if you want to go on a weekend adventure). Head along here to view their planned excursions.
We have built a new track (called C2) in the forest next to Halswell Quarry on Dan’s land. It starts at the same place as the Crocodile Track and merges in with the Crocodile again about half way up. This track is the first of several small sections of singletrack we plan to build on this property.
