On Saturday, 16 October, the MTB Park is hosting its first mountain bike event.
Sponsored by Tineli Performance Bikewear, Stoke Cycle Centre & Konica Minolta, the event is part of an inaugural 10 day long Konica Minolta Nelson Cycle Festival.
The emphasis is on participation, mostly using the Park's Easy circuit but also diverting onto some of Kimi Ora's narrower, bike-friendly, walking tracks. Also included is some new track yet to be officially opened!
All levels of mountain biker are catered for, even if some younger or less-experienced riders may prefer to dismount for the odd corner. Depending on your level of fitness, you can opt to do one, two or three circuits.
There'll be lots of spot prizes, followed by a free More FM barbeque on the beach afterwards.
For added novelty, there's also the option of catching a lift back to Nelson on Wilson's new Vista launch for just $45.
The event will start at 11.30am.
Entry fee is $10 for U14s, others $20 or a Family Package of $40 for 2 adults & 2 chn.
All riders who register online at www.nelsoncyclefestival.co.nz will receive a bag, a drink bottle and a wrist band that identifies them as a registered rider.
Proceeds from this event will go towards more track development at Kaiteriteri so what better way to show your support than by joining in a day of mtb fun!
