Our ultimate goal is to connect Waihi Beech to Tauranga and eventually to Rotorua, Whakatane and beyond. This will take time to complete, but as long as we keep chipping away at it, it will happen. To achieve our goal we will need the help of motivated individuals as well as local business. Below are a few options by which people can get involved.

Note: The subscription to host this web-site will be renewed in Oct 2019. However, if it isn’t self-funded by Oct 2020 the service will be terminated! Your donation will ensure its continued existence.



Volunteers help by lobbying council or showing up at working bees. Local councils have a myriad of projects requiring funds and they need to hear that the community really wants cycle trails. Otherwise our rates dollars will be spent elsewhere. It’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease!



Friends are local businesses who derive opportunity from the cycle / walking trail either by providing food or accommodation or by ferrying people from one location to another, and so on. For only $200 per annum a business can place a short summary on the web-site describing what they offer, as well as a link to their own web-site.



Sponsors consist of businesses who want to raise their community profile by sponsoring parts of this project. That can be either in the form of a direct grant or provision of a service, for example design / consulting service, providing an earth-moving machine for a few hours, and the like. Sponsors will have their logo displayed permanently on all screens of this web-site.



Money makes the world go around and to build quality cycle and walking trails is no exception. So if you don't have the time to get involved, any cash advance no matter how small can be put to good use. Building trails has to follow a rigurous procedure requiring professional services (legal, design, consent applications, etc). Building the trail requires material to be purchased, the use of earth moving machinery and once completed, signage is required. All monies received will be held in a trust account administered by the trustees, providing total transparency of where these funds have been utilised.
