We need to do this in our area.
The council is only obligated to act when the larger part of our community speaks out.
We also need to collectively get together, be it, Bikers, runners or walkers and put forward a submission for this facility as a general requirement.
Doing this separately doesn't have the impact or persuasiveness of a large group.
A loop around Timaru would be great for all, plus smaller facilities, eg (pump tracks & short MTB trails) dotted throughout the city linking specific parks and recreation spots would be great to encourage the younger generation to get outside and become more active.

Found two gintrap possum lines running through Raincliff Forest so take care if wandering of tracks and if you go with dogs.

Due to the weather and the fact this rain is ment to carry on for the weekend we will have to cancel tomorrows chocolate fish race.
Some will be relieved and others would've been looking forward to the mud and carnage but hope for some better weather for next month.
