Donate to our trail build project

Track building in the Wainui Reserve is well under way. Once it is completed, we will need to keep them professionally maintained so that their quality is not compromised. If you would like to make a contribution to assist us with costs, visit Trailforks to make a donation.

Raglan Ocean Trails update

Track building has been delayed until October due to our resource consent taking longer than anticipated. Watch this space for more updates

Wainui tracks fundraiser

We are now less than a month away from the tracks starting to be built, and we need to raise a few more $ to make sure they happen.

We are staging a fantastic evening at Rock-it Cafe with local bands, Heavy Lounge Suite and Mighty Mighty playing either side of an auction.

Tickets are $25 and are available from Rock-it Cafe, the Information Centre and the Raglan Library.

Saturday the 28th of March. See you there!

Wainui tracks update

Empire of Dirt are starting work on the tracks in the Wainui Reserve in April 2015. We have nearly raised all of the money needed to get us the first few kilometres of tracks established in the pine forest (stage 1) but are still in need of a few thousand. These tracks will mostly be ‘feeders’ – tracks that will get bikers quickly to the fun stuff. If you would like to make a contribution to the project, please email Merren at raglanmtb@gmail.com
