The Manawatu Mountain Bike Club requires ongoing funding and support to build and maintain trails at Arapuke Forest Park.  Our initial funding plan, Arapuke Trail Supporters (ATS), is based on an annual sponsorship at differing levels, as detailed below.  Whilst we would prefer an annual contribution we would also be very happy with one-off contributions to ATS. Other funding ideas are also listed and include donations of products or time.  If you have suggestions for any other forms of fundraising, please contact us on


Arapuke Trail Supporters

Annual Sponsorship

  1. Optional Annual Sponsorship; A tax Invoice will be issued for sponsorship for $250 and above. (Sponsorship has no GST as we are not GST registered) 
  2. All money goes into an Arapuke Trails specific bank account which is audited annually with MMBC accounts
  3. All expenditure is proposed by the Arapuke Trails committee and approved by the full MMBC committee
  4. A great way to support the trail building for riders who can't make Dig Days
  5. Arapuke already attracts significant numbers of out of region riders, so support for our trails will benefit Manawatu businesses and the Manawatu economy
  6. A newsletter will be published on this website quarterly
  7. Businesses who become Arapuke Trails Supporters will be afforded promotional opportunities in the form of signage and acknowledgement through club communications, websites and social media
  8. Businesses and individuals who provide Arapuke Trail sponsorship of over $250 will be provided an individual club membership in the year of sponsorship
  9. The link below will take you to our shop.  Whilst we offer a paypal option, we prefer direct credit payments, as we incur no fees on these transactions

Trail Naming Sponsorship

Trail naming rights will be tendered by MMBC on a 3 year contract starting shortly
