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.

Blog articles that mention this trail


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.
