    There’s no link, The only online presense for sidecars in NZ is the Flyingthechair section of this website. No idea about 2 wheelers.

    hmmm, i was thinking about Thompsons in the next 2 days. Last time I rode there it was blocked with landslips and treefall; it was completely impassable.
    Think I’ll ride the Tect Park in Pyes Pa (staying in Rotorua for a night and 2 days with son and grandson. Grandson really wants to take his BRAAAP out for a ride!

    of course I’m only a 50cc rider here so i’ll have to keep my 300exc in 1st gear and 25% revs or I might get booked for being too fast

    Thanks for that, I didn’t know about it. Looks like the ideal place to take our 12 year old and her drz 125, and possibly Jennifer on her DR250 for some off road experience.

    Do you know of any other similiar places?

    Just had a look at that map again, the motorcycle tracks are marked with an asterix, which translates to ‘Open Weekdays’.

    Any idea whether that means only open weekdays or also open weekdays?

    I took our 12 year old to Archery direct last week and we had a practice/training session on the bows, it was fun.
