This is one of a few places in the area that has this feature.
A quiet room in a modern house with amenities, yet outside you are in the idyllic Banks Peninsula and adjacent to Haven MTB Park - walk/ride/relax in nature - between Christchurch & Little River near Akaroa - a popular tourist destination.

The space
Haven Mountain Bike Park is a 65 acre block of land just 30 minutes south of Christchurch nestled in beautiful Banks Peninsula.

It was purchased in May 2006 by Shailer with the purpose to build mountain bike tracks and plant trees as a way to give back to the sport and to get out of the big smoke.

The McQueens Valley Mountain Bike Club Incorporated was formed in June 2006 with the intent to build a world class mountain bike park in a restored native forest on this land. We achieved charitable status in July 2009.

This long-term vision will culminate in the land being available for the people of Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand and Beyond to access intermediate level trails amongst native trees and plants on a historical piece of Banks Peninsula rock.

Currently the club has almost 100 dedicated members from a diverse range of backgrounds but we are united by the desire to build great mountain bike trails and to give something back to the land and the cycling community.

Most of the land was cleared in 2000 for farming purposes but was never utilised and as a consequence scrub, in the form of broom, wilding pines and small patches of gorse, have taken over amongst the native trees and bushes that are regenerating.

Guest access
All access, except the office and our bedroom! :)

Other things to note
We have two cats - they run the place - one very friendly dog and a unruly puppy (who lives outside) my partner Candice and house-mate Russell.

I enjoy the company of others but I am hardly a raconteur I have travelled most of the world and enjoy it immensely, but there is no place like home - let me show it off to you. I own the land on Haven MTB Park (you will have to G o o g l e it) and we are having fun building trails, planting trees and taking in the flora and fauna. But I love all the comforts of home, enjoy movies, music and books and have plenty to share.
