The ‘HeadsUp Adventures’ Story
Business owner, Warren Gill, has forged a passionate career over the years in the civil construction industry and his love of machinery has seen him operate almost every type of earth moving equipment there is. Over the years, Warren has loved to construct many different types of tracks, from motorbike to mountain bike tracks for both himself, his mates and his three active sons – Luke, Liam and Wyatt. It was over this time that Warren began dreaming of being able to share the family’s love of riding and outdoors with others and was eager to fuel his passion of building longer and better tracks. To create an outdoor haven of activity and a forever paradise was Warren and his sons ultimate goal and lifestyle dream.
Warren, with the support of his wife, Ange, began to look for the perfect property and it didn’t take long before they found their slice of paradise – 143 acres of beautiful land with endless 360 degree views of both the ocean and forest. Constructing and sculpting existing old farm tracks through native bush and indigenous forest became Warren and his sons weekend passion (including most summer nights!). The development of the family’s lifestyle dream has been 24-months in the making and there has never been a dull moment – with amazing friends, family and woofers who have worked tirelessly to help develop the tracks, has been a wonderful adventure in itself.
Custom Designed Bike Tracks
As Northland’s first dedicated downhill mountain bike and Monster Scooter trail park, HeadsUp features WORLD CLASS trails in a beautiful natural setting. Our custom-designed bike tracks navigate through natural bush and stunning mountainous scenery, with trail grades to suit most levels. We’ve worked with the guidance of international downhill biking expert designer, Jeff Carter (Southstar Trails), to construct tracks that will leave you breathless – literally! Our 143 acre property doesn’t just cater for those on bikes, as we also offer New Zealand’s very first (and only) Monster Scooter adventures. These exciting non – motorized scooters are ideal for all ages – even toddlers can join in, making these scooter tracks a completely unique outdoor experience for the entire family.
