    Trail building and riding weekend video. Craigieburn, New Zealand

    Hi all,

    Thought you might like to check out a little video we made of us track building and riding here in NZ.

    During the early part of 2013, Ground Effect took on a project to extend to the Drac' Flat Track (try saying that fast after a couple of cold ones) at Craigieburn Forest Park. The Craigieburn trails lie just an hour and a half (by car) west of Christchurch in the foothills of the Southern Alps, New Zealand. A blend of high country and beech forest singletrack, it is outrageously good mountain biking in a stunning location.

    Over a weekend in March, a burly bunch of Ground Effect staff and customers gathered for the weekend. Forty of us crafted over 2km of fresh singletrack, sweated buckets, replenished with beer, spent a balmy Saturday night at Forest Lodge, ate too much lasagne, squeezed in some riding and had a generally exhausting time. The Craigieburn Trail network is pretty flash now with over 30km of continuous singletrack between Broken River Ski Field and Castle Hill Village.
