This year Kaiteriteri MTB Park is hosting the region's premier mtb event, the Mid-Winter Breakout!
Timetabled round the shortest day of the year, Sunday, June 19, will be the day to load up your bikes and head for the Park.
If you've ever taken part in the Rabbit Island events, you'll already know what great fun they are. If not, here's your chance to find out why this is the most popular event on the Nelson MTB Club's calendar.
The Mountain Bike Park offers an ideal recreational circuit guaranteed to have you grinning from ear to ear. Lap times will vary between 20-30 mins - the idea is to see how many laps your team can clock up in 6 hours (hopefully one more than your mates :-)
Teams can be 2-4 people or, for those wanting to push themselves that bit harder, you can go solo.
In many parts of the country, a mid-winter mtb event often means a mud-fest. Not at Kaiteriteri - the firm & free-draining tracks mean they're good for riding year-round. So don't hesitate - get some mates together and get a team in now!
