Fun and challenging trail ride
It's an event eagerly looked
forward to in the
pre-Christmas buildup: the
annual Riversdale Rugby

The event is open to all ages and ability
levels, with the only stipulation that riders MUST
be responsible for their own bike and wear a
helmet and protective clothing / safety gear,''
--- Spokesperson Paul Pomare

What better way to take a step aside from the
hustle and bustle and preparations for
Christmas than heading to the hills for a ride
across some terrain which offers challenges, views
and a break from thinking about what to buy for
someone on your Christmas list.
This year's ride is set to be as much fun and as
challenging as ever, with the nearby Glenlapa Station
'hosting' the routes for this event in 2012. And for all
those trail riders who love getting out there and
getting that adrenalin pumping, the tracks offer a
range of loops to cope with the various levels of
expertise expected amongst those entering.
Spokesperson Paul Pomare said the move from the
2011 venue of Argyle Station is with the aim of giving
a completely new riding environment for trail ride
followers, of which there were over 300 participating
in the 2011 trail ride.
''The new venue for this year's trail ride will also bring
opportunities for great riding across some diverse
terrain,'' Mr Pomare said. ''And into this ride also
comes some spectacular views over parts of Northern
Southland especially the Glenary, Nokomai and
Cattle Flat Stations and down the Mataura Valley.''
Rough riders: Twelve year-old Leigh Proctor, of Mataura, will race in the junior lites
class at the world's most southern super cross event in Winton on Saturday. He is
joined by Jordan Wilson, of Hedgehope, as they train at the purpose-built track
