Urban Downhill

Downhill hits the streets of Wanaka this Saturday!!! If you haven’t heard or no what’s up check in with you local bike shop or click on the link to the Wanaka MTB Club webstite on this home page. Starts up in the Lismore dirt park before decending the stairs and streets!! Wild day out down town Wanaka, loads of prizes.

Hard Labour Weekend

Based around Ben Ohau Station and the canals of Lake Pukaki near Twizel is a three event weekend for all. A running race “The Pyramid Run”, Road Cycling Race “Canal Caper” and Mountain Bike “Dusky Trail”. These guys have put on many similar multi-sport races on in the past so their experience should ensure this new combination presents something for all and a good challenge for those asking for it.

All the courses look great infact I’ve been thinking for years that the canals would make a great road race; so cool to see it’s happening click here for online regestration and details, maps and distances of each disaplin

Weekly Wanaka Bunch Rides

This list has grown substantially in the last 2 years. If you have anything to add give me a shout I’ll more than happy to promote for the greater good.

Monday’s Starting from Racers Edge at 6pm. This has become the biggest gathering and now splits into various groups of ability from novice to intermediate. Approx. 1.5 hours.

Tuesday’s The Girls ride, leaves the information center (Log Cabin) on the Lake Front at 6pm and, no boys your not invited! Fun social road ride approx. 1- 1.5 hours.

Wednesday World’s Every town has to have one… This is the quickest of the bunch rides in Wanaka, however is genarally a fairly social outing for at least half of it, before someone decides to turn the screws and claim the weekly championship. Meet at the Log Cabin on the Lake Front 5:30 pm (6pm from November onwards).

Thursday’s The Tea Towel Trophey. An Individual Time Trial where you can test yourself against the clock on a set course weekly. Use it as a great threshold training session, a place to test new equipment, your race day nerves or a new aero position. Very popular and prestigious, note that you will only be judged against your own times so everybody has equal opportunity. Currently starting just past the junction of Golf Course Rd and the Cardrona Valley Rd. 8km.
