Notes:

This trail  was a real surprise packet and not what I was expecting.  Mad If You Don't starts across Red Tank Rd from the end of Be Rude Not To 2 and  winds its way down to Waipa Mill Rd just around the corner from Planet Bike (a short ride to the carparks at Waipa or 8 Mile Gate).

Mad If You Don't has some really nice XC flow.  Mostly on the descent it has a few pedally  sections and a number of short climbs, the key on Mad If You Don't is to be smooth through the corners, but be warned  it has its dangers.

There are a  many a-line jumps, stumps, roots, ruts and small kickers along to the length of Mad If You Don't, getting a little  off line on a corner may see you inadvertently launching off one of these features.  In fact on the last day I came across a rider  in a bad way who had been bucked off her bike by one of the small a-line  features.

But donít  let me scare you off, because Mad If You Don't is a really fun descending XC trail and a great way to exit the  forest after a big day on the trails.

This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
