Back by popular demand this Autumn are Emma Bawtree's wheel woman bike skills workshops. Many local women used these last year to help prepare for the mtb stages of the Spring Challenge. They found the range of tracks & switchbacks available to practise on at Kaiteriteri ideal for building confidence and improving technique.
Emma's all-women workshops cater for those just getting into mountain biking through to Intermediate-level singletrack riding. She'll be running them through May & June and recommends you get in early to secure a place as she prefers to work with small groups.
Contact her at email@example.com or (03) 540 2678.
Also coming up on June 19 is the Kaiteriteri Mid-Winter 6Hr Breakout!
For the first time this event is being held at the Mountain Bike Park and is being run in conjunction with the Nelson MTB Club. The course will appeal to recreational riders who can expect a lap time of 25-30 ins. You can enter as a solo rider or as part of a team of 2-4 riders.
We'll be posting details on the cost, course & categories available soon but, in the meantime, start getting your team together!
We'd like to start building a gallery of your favourite pix of biking in the Park. Greg Buckett has got the wheel rolling with this, taken from the top of Rockface on a typical Kaiteriteri day. If you've got a pic you'd like to share, send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
