Clear the Slip! Get the Gorge Open: NMBC

Clear the slip to get the Gorge open and get stranded volunteer cars out! #GettheGorgeOpen #SavetheGorge #LoveTheGorge

When Eddie turned up with his rake to clear a “wee slip”, he realised the job may be a bit bigger than expected….

Wairoa Gorge Bike Park volunteers Eddie, Mike and Jamie were at the Gorge volunteering their time to clear trees when a rather big slip came down, blocking their cars in the Gorge. The slip has also meant that the Bike Park shuttles have had to close. Many may say being trapped at the Gorge to ride and play is a good thing, but the reality is that they can’t play forever and need their cars!

With Eddie, Mike and Jamie carless and our operations suspended, we need to get the slip cleared. The only trick is that we need to raise $50,000 to not only clear the slip, but make sure it is done safely and won’t happen again! The more we raise the more we can do to future proof the access. If we do not reach our target, we will do what we can to get the cars out and look to alternative funding sources which will take considerable more time to secure (if at all). We will also look to begging and pleading already under pressure local companies, for help!

Help us get the Gorge open and get Eddie, Mike and Jamie’s cars back! Donate today and give yourself some warm fuzzies for helping volunteers and for helping NMTBC to save this unique mountain bike park.
