Rivenrock is a purpose built and professionally designed Mountain Bike Park for all levels of mountain bikers.
Located on a private 500 acre farm with beginner, intermediate and advanced tracks Rivenrock is just 15 minutes from Masterton and Carterton just before the Mount Holdsworth campsite. The park's special topography, great location and incredible views from the tracks back over Masterton and Tararua Ranges make Rivenrock a must do.
Rivenrock is closed now for the winter season and will be continuing track building over winter to early spring. They will however still be open for group bookings of 10 or more people and to clubs and schools for prearranged bookings for the Mountain park.

BMX rider Paul Langlands has helped design the mountain bike tracks which include a series of family-friendly tracks on the lower slopes of the farm, single tracks that weave through the pinetree forest and over farmland then back down the steep hills.
There is a shuttle service available which takes riders and their bikes from the main gate to the top of the park. Riders can purchase a 10-trip pass for the shuttle service or pay per ride. Eftpos is available.
Wyn Masters and Cam Cole, two of New Zealand's top riders think Rivenrock has the potential to be the best in NZ.
