The Aoraki Secondary Schools Mountain Biking Championships is being held on Cape Wanbrow this Saturday (16 September).
Cape Wanbrow will still be open to the public but we want to make sure that everyone stays safe while the competition is on. If you're walking your dog you'll need to keep them on their lead at all times during the event. Recreational walkers and runners can still access the cape and marshalls will be stationed at major intersections of the walking and biking tracks.
The location is seen as offering ideal terrain for both the downhill and cross country races. Special permission has been granted from the landowner to use the paddock above the reserve for the downhill which will allow a longer downhill run and easy road access for shuttling riders to the top of the course.
