Mountain Bikes on Mt Wellington
Lydia Marino, the Wellington park ranger, responded quickly to my query about mountain bikes on Mt Wellington. There's a $180 on-the-spot fine which can be imposed, and this would be done if they caught riders on the Pinnacle Track or ZigZag Track. Obviously it's difficult, because there isn't a whole lot of resource for patrolling the mountain. Sounds like the rest of us need to keep an eye out. The response was a little more encouraging than I expected, but clearly they can't watch everyone all the time.
