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. 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).
Interested in the Old Ghost Road? Here is a link to a trip the Tregurtha’s recently did, thanks to the Christchurch Singletrack Club and the businesses involved.
During 2012 we 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 has proved to be quite popular with intermediate riders (and walkers and runners!) and is the first of several small sections of singletrack we plan to build on this property. The next track we built was Deviation, on the opposite side of the valley when you emerge from the trees at the top of C2. Work started on this in autumn 2013 and Deviation opened at the end of 2013. Due to being a new track and on the shady side of the valley it was kept closed during the 2014 winter and spring due to being too wet to ride. In 2015 we built a track in the pines that is an extension of Deviation and meets up with C2 and Crocodile at the cattlestops going in to Halswell Quarry.
