The philosophy of the club is simple:
To bring the exhiliration of mountain biking to as many people as possible and to continue to make Rotorua a must-ride destination for mountain bikers from around the country and the world.
The Club was formed at the start of the 1990s just as the first mountain bike specific trails began to appear in the Whakarewarewa Forest.
From those early, inspired beginnings – a 20-kilometre loop called the Challenge Trail – the club has overseen the development of a world-class network of around 150 kilometres, flowing and undulating through a unique landscape and environment, just minutes from town.
Trails like this...
The Club operates the RMTBC First Response Unit in the forest and is involved in running events – from low key club events like the Triple Crown or Low Key Super D right up to hosting the 2006 UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships.
The outcome is that our city is now the premier, all-year-round mountain biking resort…in the world.
