Check out our MTB tracks

South Canterbury is making a name for itself as a chilled out mountain biking destination, and Timaru District is home to some of the best tracks.

We managed to grab five minutes to chat to Chris Thomas - event organiser extraordinaire.

Chris is a mountain biker, and he loves our district tracks. He recommends the tracks at Centennial Park. There are heaps of tracks there, for all ages and abilities, from absolute beginner to challenging single tracks. You can pretty much spend all day there trying out the different tracks.

Also, our coastal tracks are another favourite. There's approximately 15km of flat scenic track from Waimataitai past Jacks Point lighthouse.
