Sunday 24 April: Tadmor Community Group Trail Ride
Org: Peter Wilks
Excellent turnout of 340+ riders. Bit of rain the night before made things a bit tricky first thing but later made for great riding conditions. Weather on the day couldn't have been better so all in all a successful event and lots of happy riders. Special mention to Andrew who turned up at 7:30 in the morning-said he had just come over from the U.K!! A keen lad if there ever was one!
Many thanks to all the riders, and the local lads for helping set-up. We also really appreciate the gnerosity of the landowners: Bruce Moffat, Brent Hodgkinson, Peter Philips, and Tony Firth.
These are held 2nd Wed each month 7pm at Club Waimea in Richmond. All members welcome.
Next meeting 11th May

Forest Permit Riding Scheme:
Update on forest closures 19 April
The NMCC are working hard to get the usual forests open again. Currently the only forest open to motorcycle rider permit holders is the Moutere Forest. AFM advise the reopening of Hira is imminent so watch this space! With riding concentrated here, make sure you ride carefully and abide by the rules of forest use - do not enter the forests without a valid permit, and do not enter the closed forests. Please bear with us and we will update you as soon as we have some more news to provide.
Moutere FOREST OPEN
Hira and Wairoa FOREST CLOSED
AFM are reviewing this and advised they will allow access when it is safe. Security checks have been increased.The Hira forest has recently changed ownership.
Carry your fire extinguishers, clear headers and check spark arrestors before going out plus display your Vehicle Dashboard Card and put your Permit Tag on your bike. Be polite when you are stopped and please promote this riding scheme to other users as this will help us keep our access.
If you need to get or renew your AFM permit Jannine is available in Stoke by appointment. Bring the $60 permit fee (or pay online) and your completed Bike Check and Permit application forms and do your club membership application online first if you are a new member (to save time).
Txt 027 439 1740 for appointment.
