TRAIL MAP


BUILT BY: Mark Smith in 2003 as part of a new wave of trail building. The top section was rebuilt 2011 after logging.


GETTING THERE: Starts from the intersection of Pipeline, Direct & Red Tank roads (where the water fountain is). Tickler and The Wash Trails deliver you to the B Rude Not 2 trail head, and Sweet-n-Sour Trail finishes just opposite an entry point 100 metres in from the start of the trail. The exit from Hot X Buns was designed to point you straight at the entrance (at high speed).

TRAIL DESCRIPTION: In 2010/11 there was a major amount of harvesting in the area and the Rotorua Mountain Bike Club took the opportunity for a full rebuild of the first section.
Part of the brief was to retain the shape and length of the original and in this the Club, along with Mark, have created another masterpiece.
The original B Rude Not 2 defined fast and flowing and that is improved in version 2 – lots of berms and jumps take you quickly through young pine forest. The second section, through mature pines, is quite different in character, becoming more rooty and slower – the perfect balance to the first section. It’s a favourite of many riders in Whakarewarewa Forest and handles wet weather well so is a good choice to ride after rain.

GETTING OUT: There are three exit options, from the junction a few hundred metres past a hump-wooden “bridge” combo; 1) turn left to end up opposite the start of Mad if you Don’t Trail. 2) Turn right and keep going straight ahead, to the start of Pig Trail opposite the exit. 3) Turn right then right again, and after a 300 metres or so the trail exits on a road – cross this and follow the side road to the beginning of Lion Trail.

RIDERS COMMENTS:
i rode this when it was first built, on a touring bike with slick tyres @ 100psi ... sadly the old fun track has gone and the new track is a different kind of fun ... it is getting a bit pitted now though from being exposed to the weather ...

I'm sorry but the new B-rude isn't even a shadow of its former self. Once the trees are gone...

Been riding this trail since it's inception...it's the thing I miss the most about living in the North. Even if I was having a cruddy ride, a run down BRNT always bought the smile back. Kudos to a most excellent trail builder :-)

Like a lot of locals I must have ridden this over 100 times and it still feels as good as the 1st time.
