Thank you Kopiko Aotearoa riders  19 January 2021

Posted by: Motu Trails Charitable Trust

Big thanks to all the Kopiko Aotearoa riders who have supported Motu Trails Charitable Trust. We are doing our best to keep Pakihi in top condition (600+ hours of work in Dec/Jan period) hopefully we can continue this through Feb/March though Pakihi is dynamic terrain and one major storm can undo a lot of work! Visual: finishing off a bit of restored track on Pakihi. Nga mihi Jim
