BAMBA require funding to maintain tools and to hire heavy machinery when required.
The Belmont Area Mountain Bike Association (BAMBA) play a key role in establishing a sustainable multi-use trail network in the Belmont Regional Park and work closely with Greater Wellington Regional Council to maximise the value of the park for the whole community.
BAMBA is a small group of volunteers with limited funds which means that a majority of the trail building require our blood, sweat, and tears to complete. Having sufficient funding allows for the purchase and maintenance of hand digging tools as well as contributing to the hire of heavy machinery when required for larger projects.
Currently we are working on some specific pain points on trails to give a better consistent feel, such as the steep turn on Weta, as well as prevent damage over the winter months. Scoping of new trails is also underway and once approved attention will focus on adding to the trail network.
Use of Funds:
Purchase of trail building tools, such as Hilti Hoes, Fire Rakes, Shovels, and Mattocks. Hiring and running costs for a digger and driver.
The Belmont Area Mountain Bike Association (BAMBA) was established as an incorporated society to promote the interests of mountain bikers and other recreational users of the Belmont Regional Park (BRP) in Lower Hutt, New Zealand.
