Dirty Weekend

Three whole days of the best back country/enduro riding in New Zealand.

The 'Dirty Weekend' concept incorporates the best Heli biking and back country/enduro style mountain biking in New Zealand.

The tracks we ride are natural farm track, sheep track and old gold mining trails; we classify them as Back country Enduro, a bit more challenging than your average cross country trail but not downhill tracks.

If you own and ride a mountain bike then these trips will suit you.

The Dirty weekend - 2 heli bike days and 1 single track day.
