Bike Wanaka

Lake Wanaka’s Mountain Bike Club

Lake Wanaka’s situation in the Southern Lakes of New Zealand gives it an unfair advantage.  Soaring mountains yet trails that are well drained and rarely wet.  A thriving mountain town, but with wilderness on its doorstep.

Mountain Biking families, enthusiasts or even professionals – we have them all and we’ve got trails to keep you happy!

Bike Wanaka Inc has been in existence since the early 90’s developing and growing Mountain Biking (MTB) in the Upper Clutha region. We have a membership base of over 500 and an active committee. Our priorities as a club are to:

  • Ensure Sticky Forest becomes a community asset
  • Build new tracks
  • Maintain the existing track network
  • Hold MTB events throughout each year
  • Access great discounts and deals for our members
  • Advocate for broader biking issues in Wanaka
  • Develop riders and coaches in the region
  • Build strong relationships with other organisations - DOC, Lake Wanaka Tourism and Upper Clutha Tracks Trust.

Hi Simon, I just wanted to thank you for helping me fulfill a long term dream in shooting a trophy elk. I couldn't be happier with the end result – definitely one of the only animals I've ever shot that doesn't suffer ground shrinkage as you get up to it! It just got bigger and bigger! A lot of amazing country was covered in the two days it took to find him - couldn't have done it without your help!

This is the second time I've been hunting with Cardrona Outfitters and it won't be the last (don't tell my wife that though)! Feel free to share my comments as I'd highly recommend you to anyone considering going to NZ hunting!
