The Return of Corners

CornersZm

 

It's not every day that a trail building company calls to ask for a t shirt design to celebrate the opening of a new trail, but it's not every day that a trail like the new Corners is completed.

Southstar Trails are looking forward to re-opening Corners this weekend, Nzo has the t shirt right now.

The original Corners in Rotorua's Whakarewarewa Forest may not have been technical, particularly fast, or very challenging at all, but it was among the most popular from the day Dodzy, Rob Metz and Dave Griffin on the rake, finished it.

If you were looking for a place to 'sell' a newbie on mountain biking, Corners was perfect.

Access by bus, and a flowing trail through big old pines with dozens of sculpted Corners could turn just about anybody into a mountain biker on the spot, and make even old hands grin like fools.

The trees got logged last summer, and the Southstar Trails crew have been busy ever since.

The new Corners has taken the DNA of the original and stepped it up a notch or two.

Can't wait to try it out!

Nzo shared $10 from every Corners T sold on the weekend of its release with the Rotorua Trails Trust

Postscript: gave Corners a go on Friday night after work: the boys were still hard at it on the last section, but I can report the rest of it is ridiculous fun.
