Fancy dress cyclists to take over Wellington

Feb 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Front Page Layout, Latest News, News, Sport

MT VICTORIA in central Wellington is again hosting the Wild Wellington mountain bike team relay on February 19.

The popular event is now in its fourth year, and last year attracted more than 700 riders.

“There will be teams taking part in all kinds of fancy dress, with great tracks and something for everyone, as well as easier grade tracks for kids,” says event organiser Jill Ford.

The ride takes place between 8am -10pm and is a six-hour or 12-hour marathon across 6km of the Capital’s best-liked tracks, including a new zig-zag downhill described as “awesome” by the organisers.

Entrants are mostly teams, but solo riders can also take part. There are no age restrictions.

There are prizes for the best-dressed teams, as well as the fittest and fastest.

All entrants will automatically go into the draw for a $3000 Avanti mountain bike.

“So unleash your wild side and enter,” says Jill. “Wild Wellie is about having a wild ride, wild fun and wild outfits.”

Closing date for entries is February 14.
