VTT Passion NC and MTB Rotorua are proud to announce their partnership!!
Welcome to NZ MTB Riders and MTB Rotorua Members !! Please contact us if you need any help or if you want to ride with us.
The Rotorua Mountain Bike Club is a New Zealand club dedicated to promoting the sport of mountain biking and bringing the exhilaration of mountain biking to as many people as possible. Rotorua is a world class mountain bike destination with MBA Gold Status being achieved in 2015, the highest rank possible.
The club continues to help make Rotorua a must-ride destination for mountain bikers from around the country and the world.
The Club was formed at the start of the 1990s just as the first mountain bike specific trails began to appear in the Whakarewarewa Forest. From those early, inspired beginnings – a 20-kilometre loop called the Challenge Trail – the club has overseen the development of a world-class network of around 150 kilometres, flowing and undulating through a unique landscape and environment, just minutes from town.
As well as assisting the Rotorua Trails Trust with trail activities the club also promotes the competitive and social side of the sport via a range of activities:
– Social races and fun events
– Supporting beginner and novice riders with skills and group rides
– Supporting national and international level riders
– Trail maintenance days
VTT PASSION is born in 2001. This is thanks to the will of a handful of avid outdoors lovers and mountain bikers that our club exists today. New Caledonia is an amazing playground for mountain biking. Our motto is « sporty but friendly ». Throughout the year, members of the club organise on average a couple of group rides a month. These rides are ranked from « green » for the easiest to « black » for the most difficult and they can take place on one or several days with or without assistance.
Every year VTT PASSION also organize a major mountain biking event: « La Mégarando ». This event is taking place the last weekend of August and gathers more than 1,500 mountain bikers in one place on one day ! This event has become a marker of New Caledonia’s sports calendar, and many awards recognized the organizational quality of our event. « La Mégarando » is the result of the mobilization of the whole club !!!
If you want to join our club, you first need to participate in a mountain bike ride organised by the club that suits your level. And if at the end of the ride you are still interested to become a member of our club you just need to:
_ accept the club statutes and rules
_ apply for a Fédération Française de Cyclisme sporting licence through our club.
If you wish to discover or re-discover New-Caledonia’s mountain bike trails, VTT PASSION will welcome you with great pleasure !
