We’ve got a LOT going on up on the mountain in the next few weeks! Check out all our events – from mountain bike races, to family days out, to yoga retreats, there’s something happening for everyone to get involved with.
Sat Feb 11 – 100% Gravity Enduro
This Saturday we’re hosting the 100% Gravity Enduro. This race consists of 3 intermediate-level downhill courses, with racers getting 3 timed runs down each course. Their best time from each course will be combined to determine the winner. It includes Open & Junior (high school) age divisions. If you’ve never tried enduro racing, this is the perfect event to give it a go!
Sun Feb 12 – Bike Wanaka Members’ Day
Calling all Bike Wanaka members! Come on up to check out the Cross Country trail for the NZ Mountain Bike Nationals & race the clock in a Strava Enduro event. Chill out & enjoy the summer vibes with a sausage sizzle at the bottom of Whitestar Express.
Sun Feb 19 – Geo Adventures Fun Day
Geo Adventures is a family day out to experience orienteering & Frisbee golf together in our alpine environment. If you’re an experienced geo sportster or you just want to come give it a go, this day is the one for you! $25 will get you a lift pass for either activity – grab a day pass to try both or bring your bike up for a blast.
