Win a Dream Trip for You and a Friend
Air New Zealand partnered up with Christchurch Adventure Park, Skyline Rotorua, Skyline Queenstown and Thredbo Australia to offer one lucky Pinkbike user and a friend a 14-day trip to ride bikes at some of the best bike parks in the Southern Hemisphere. Read the following press releases to discover what the lucky winners will get to experience.
Christchurch Adventure Park
We are set to be the Southern Hemisphere’s largest lift-accessed trail network. Based in Christchurch’s Port Hills, 20 minutes from the City Centre, we boast New Zealand’s longest chairlift, taking riders and their bikes to a height of 468m. A devastating wildfire ripped through the Park in February 2017, destroying the entire trail network. However, after a tremendous effort by our trail crew, we reopened in December 2017 with a beginner trail, a blue intermediate flow trail, and a double black single track trail. Over the Summer, more trails will be opening, and by March 2018 the trail network is expected to be at a place where it was before the fire, with a mix of all levels and machine built flow and hand-built single track. Trail construction will continue through the winter for an epic season of riding in Summer 2018/19. Aside from the riding, we also host a Zipline Tour, with 4 dual ziplines including New Zealand’s highest and longest Ziplines as well as a large café & bar with a stunning covered deck - the perfect place for a post-ride beer and fries.
Skyline Rotorua Mountain Bike Gravity Park We are the world’s first year-round, gondola accessed mountain bike park. Our trail network features eleven mixed-grade trails spanning 12.5km on Mount Ngongotaha, from beginner through to Grade 6 with multi-grade features, a 2km jump trail, and the Crankworx downhill line. We offer a range of Gondola assisted bike passes to suit every rider.
Queenstown Bike Park
We’ll sort out going up, the downhill is all yours. Take on the legendary challenges of the Queenstown Bike Park - New Zealand’s first ever Gondola-assisted Mountain Bike lift. Our crew will attach your mountain bike to a Gondola cabin at the base, and with over 30 world-class trails totaling over 30km in length and dropping 450 meters, all you have to do is ride. We have trails suited for all abilities, making this one of the best places to ride your mountain bike.
Thredbo Mountain Bike Park
Our park is one of Australia’s premier mountain biking destinations. This summer it takes freeriding, cross country exploring and action to a whole new level and elevation with a new trail network and revamped existing tracks. There are 25 kilometres of epic riding to enjoy in Thredbo. From downhill, cross-country, all-mountain and a BMX style pump track, there is lots to love about riding in Thredbo this summer.
Air New Zealand
Our Kiwi hospitality is probably the best you’ll ever experience, especially at 30,000 feet. We live and work by a set of very Kiwi values, approaching everything with genuine enthusiasm. We’re a friendly, warm, welcoming and down-to-earth bunch. We never stop looking for new ways to bring you a better way to fly, and you’ll notice it from the moment you step on board! We’ve got delicious cuisine, award-winning wines and even the world-renowned Economy Skycouch™. Not bad for a few hours above the clouds!
