Description

This track extends the fun that is Ridgeline, though dialled down just a notch. Even so, there are steep, rocky bits that provide some technical challenge.

Watch out for a bump at about the halfway point, which turns into a jump if you're going fast enough – otherwise it can be rolled over.

At about the two-thirds point there are a couple of picnic tables. Behind the first table is the top of the AMP Connector.

After swooping through the bush the track ends abruptly on Snake Charmer, so beware of vehicle traffic from the left or right as you emerge from the trees.

Getting there

Starts on Allington Connector, directly opposite the end of Ridgeline.

Ends on Snake Charmer, opposite the start of Big Tom's Wheelie.

Other notes

This track was built almost entirely in one day by volunteers from NEC Wellington on an office 'community day'.
