Deliverance - Trail, Wellington, Asia And Pacific

Deliverance - Trail, Wellington, Asia And Pacific

DESCRIPTION

Great down hill track with plenty of variety. Quite a fast DH track. Probably more suited to freeride bikes rather than the full on DH rigs. Anyone other than beginners can ride it. If you want it to be more difficult, just ride faster. Can get muddy after rain. Crosses through a very shallow creek on numerous occassions. Not very technical (although there are a few bits that could catch you out). Good riders can probably do the track in 7-8 minutes. All in all, just a good fast downhill ride.

Cross Country Rider

I'm not sure who wrote the last review, but Deliverance is no easy track. Do not attempt if you are a beginner, or an average rider. It is a technical downhill track. Sure, you certainly do not need a DH rig, any cross country or freeride rig will suit, but a good level of skill is required. It's a wicked track that first follows an old river bed which is generally always wet. It then enters some sweet single track (whicjh is on a slight camber) that is quite demanding of the rider, with a few really tricky parts where you have to get the weight right back behind your seat post. It then flattens out somewhat and you have cross the same stream 3-4 times.

Track location is close to Wellington's premium Mountain bike park, Makara peak. Access can be from Hazelwood Drive. Climb up the track called "Salvation". The whole loop takes about 30 mins.

Dont know when the first review was written - a bit of 'north shore' type work has been constructed at the top of the track. Great track - nice and fast. Not too much technical stuff.

Great alternative to the Makara Peak mountain bike park once in a while.

Customer Service

Refer to description of how to get there. Can also do as a DH shuttle run by driving to the top by heading up Wrights Hill Road. Can be picked up at Fitzgerald Place to head up again.

Any of the tracks in the Makara Peak mountain bike park. Trickle Falls and Vertigo are fun. Although Vertigo can get ugly when it is wet.
