Bike Wanaka Inc has been in existence since the early 90’s developing and growing Mountain Biking (MTB) in the Upper Clutha region. We have a membership base of over 850 and an active committee.
Our priorities as a club are to:
Our MTB trails range from beginner Cross Country (XC) to expert Downhill (DH). We have trails suitable for first time families all the way through to world class competition.
Are you new to mountain biking? Hire a bike from the operators in town and cruise around the spectacular shoreline to Beacon Point.
Take a look at our trails on the trail map page
Cross Country trails start from town and head into Sticky Forest or on to Deans Bank. Every trial is hand crafted XC perfection. Many are ridable all year round as they don't suffer NZ’s worst enemy – mud! Check out the trail maps to plan your MTB mission.
Gravity riders can also be entertained by the Lismore Jump Park in town, the numerous technical trails in Sticky Forest or in summer months, the fantastic Cardrona Bike Park where World class DH runs are served by chairlift.

It’s the kind of ride dreams are made of – untouched dirt in the Southern Alps of New Zealand on trails that flow like mountain runoff. Speed, agility, and flow intersect at every corner, peeling your eyelids back and plastering a grin across your dusty mug. For some, rides like this are few and far between, and the moment is fleeting - blink and it's gone. Sam Blenkinsop was lucky enough to find himself in the middle of one while christening the Glendhu Bike Park, just outside Wanaka, New Zealand – and the crew from HUNT Cinema was there to capture his first tracks aboard the 2020 Sight.
Bike Wanaka Inc was formed to represent the mountain bikers of the Wanaka and Upper Clutha area. We work hard to ensure that the trail network is world class. For a small membership fee, you can join us and help us all keep on mountain biking.
