Crank Cycles Bannockburn Mountain Bike Classic December 30th, 2016
If you survive the festive season and feel like you might have over-indulged a little; or, want to get the jump on the inevitable New Year’s resolution to being more active….Why not enter you tribe in the Crank Cycles Bannockburn Mountain Bike Classic? This is a race designed to accommodate everyone from young’uns on their first mountain bike to those who filled their Christmas stocking with a custom made carbon fibre feat of engineering. You can choose from one of three courses: Classic Ride – 35 km, Sport Ride 22 km or Recreation Ride 10 km. Each is a mixture of off road tracks, metal and sealed road riding.
Race Director Bill Godsall says “it’s ideal for families; they can explore the Bannockburn Hills, enjoy the views, then enjoy a pub meal at the ‘Bannie’ afterwards.” The truly great thing about this race is that it starts from the Bannockburn Hotel at 4 pm. This means as long as you can get your registration in before the race briefing at 3.30 pm; you can spend most of the day out on Lake Dunstan, play golf or simply enjoy the Central Otago sunshine.
Crank Cycles is Cromwell’s newest and only bike shop. Nigel Lines will be providing spot prizes on the day and if you want your bike serviced or need any extra biking gear be sure to drop in the Cromwell Mall.
The Crank Cycles Bannockburn Mountain Bike Classic forms part of the A1 Homes Cromwell Summer Series that includes the Cromwell Half-Marathon, Pub to Pub Bannockburn Gutbuster, Lake Dunstan Duathlon/Triathlon and Lake Dunstan Round the Lake Cycle Challenge.
