Construction Gets Underway On Christchurch Adventure Park

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Thu 3/Mar/16 11:15am

Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel was at hand, with muscle from Todd Blackadder for the ceremonial turning of the first sod of earth. The diggers move in later on today.

The Christchurch Adventure Park is to be developed on 358 hectares of forested land known as the Cashmere Forest. It will include the largest mountain bike park in the Southern Hemisphere and will be the world’s first bike park to operate 365 days a year with a purpose built high-speed lift.

WTF does Todd Blackadder have to do with this?!?!?

Anton Cooper busy today?

Also the Kelly McGarry Centre for Doing Skids would be a way better name than the Christchurch Adventure Park

* a quick check of Facebook has confirmed that Anton Cooper is in fact busy on a morning ride around Lake Wanaka

"The Public" doesn't know, nor recognise who the Sam Hill, Anton Cooper is. It's no good having a figurehead no one knows. Todd is a mountain biker (well he owns an MTB) and more importantly he carries a butt load more media clout than the young Anton, Sorry Anton.

New Zilunders love rugby. Every single one of them. It should be on our flag.

Richie for president.

Good I only seem to catch him up the top of Nun.
Never tried to chase him down, it would be over very quickly.
