Thank you Kopiko Aotearoa 2022 rides  3 July 2021

Thank you to the Kopiko Aotearoa riders who have chosen to donate to Motu Trails Charitable Trust as part of their 2022 entry. It's hugely appreciated. At the trust, we do the general maintenance on Pakihi Track and Dunes Trail: this winter has been mighty challenging with several heavy rainfall events and, on Pakihi, resulting multiple rockfalls, slips and windfalls. We've got Pakihi in good condition again now, but there was some significant work (about 200hrs in the last five weeks). As well as providing important funds for future work, the donations to the trust mean a lot. Thank you! Jim ... Photo, clearing one of the recent Pakihi Track slips.
