The Coppermine mountain bike event offers a chance for you to ride some of Nelsons best trails and traverses the spectacular Coppermine mineral belt. There are three courses to cater for different riding abilities.
New for 2014 is the Big Mountain Enduro...
Race the best 3 sections of the Epic course. Fastest combined time wins. Over 1000m of down hill.
The Coppermine course is a stunning loop of the mineral belt and remains on the Dun Mountain Rail Trail all the way to the Coppermine saddle. This course has been included as part of the New Zealand national cycleway project and is suitable for the recreational rider. The Epic course has the extra climb to the top of Fringed hill (900m) and is suited more to the experienced mountain biker. Both courses descend the newly upgraded Boulder Valley which has had a major make over in 2011 catering for all abilities with an incredibly fun and flowing piece of single track.
There will be a limit on event numbers. Don’t miss out...
Loads of great performance and spot prizes!
