Pre-Ride Safety Check

There is nothing worse than finding out mid-ride, that your bike is not performing to it’s usual standard, as you were in a hurry to head out for a ride at the Waitangi Mountain Bike Park. No one wants the long walk out from Zone 5 due to a puncture or even worse have a crash, due to a loose bolt.

At Paihia Mountain Bikes we recommend before every ride you do this quick 5 minute pre ride check to ensure you are going to have the most enjoyable ride!
