AFM Forest Access Permits update:
There is now not a lot of fire danger in our local forest riding areas so have your permit tag and fire extinguisher on hand and go have some fun! Check your spark arrestor and keep headers clear of dry matter when trail riding.

Current closed riding areas:
Wairoa areas currently closed for logging operations.
There is a lot of logging action in the Moutere as well so please be careful out there.
As the car club are holding an event mid July they will be in setting up areas so be careful in the Moutere too.

Please stay out of posted and adjoining areas during other user events to ensure continued access to AFM Forests

The Club 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!

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 of the site has all the details and Permit Packs can be picked up where you get your bike checked out.
All riders must have a bike check.
Call Secretary Jannine to get your Permit Tag
