What's New:
Hancock Forest Access
The Club now has an agreement with Action Forest Management for NMCC members to get forest riding access at half the cost of non-members - $60 for 12 months!
That's a lot of low cost trail riding that's nice and handy. Includes Hira, Moutere North, and parts of the Wairoa forests.
Junior riders can now get a permit tag as well so the family can go out together.

The 'AFM Access Permits" tab at the top of this page has all the details and Permit Packs can be picked up where you get your bike checked out.

Helmet Cameras
MNZ are announcing their formal policy on the use of helmet mounted cameras before Christmas, due to impact injuries caused to riders (such as point-loading of camera mount to the skull). The NMCC has also recently seen cameras mounted to bolts in the helmet!
We suggest you have alternative mounts ready for the 2015 season as we're guessing that's probably how it's going to pan out!

MNZ Life Membership:
The NMCC is nominating Del Morgan for life membership in MNZ, having been involved in the sport from competitor to organiser to club president to MNZ Steward to MNZ Commissioner and MNZ trainer, so he's never been far from a laugh and a job in dirt biking and we'd like to see him recognised for his hard work. We'd like your support and stories by email!
