Mountain biking is a great way to get fit and to get out and about for a bit of fresh air.
We run the Mountain Bike activity on alternate Friday afternoons. On one Friday a month, from Stanmore, we may visit local mountain bike tracks such as McLean’s Island and Bottle Lake. On the second Friday each month we run a combined programme with Puriri St which caters for an Urban Bike ride. This is an easier ride and is suitable for those who do not wish to ride off-road. With a wide range of new cycle ways in Christchurch there are plenty of safe places to ride.
On a less regular basis we sometimes run a Mountain Bike activity as part of our Rangiora programme. Keep an eye on the programme if you are keen on taking part. This activity usually caters for a gentler ride.
You do not need your own bike to take part in this activity as we can hire you a bike for $2.50. We also provide helmets and visual safety vests for those taking part.
