Dh During First Year Uni?

Postby -Reaper- on Mon 1/Sep/08 10:13pm

Hey... I'm currently 7th form at school in wellington. I want to do mechanical engineering, I'll probably be coming down to canterbury univeristy next year.

I'm looking at buying a new DH bike for the summer here, but I don't want to have to sell it straight away when I head down to christchurch.

Basically, what I want to know is:

What's the deal with the port hills - are there shuttle days or anything?
Is it sensible bringing a DH bike down next year, i.e. will I have enough time to ride on the port hills? I have an aunty who lives on the hills, so I might be able to keep a bike there, but what are university halls like for storing more expensive bikes? Any reccomendations?
I won't have a car, so would it be feasable to bus to a house than try push up?

Hopefully I meet some other people keen to go biking in a hall... might make things easier.

Yeah bro, you'll want a DH bike here. the Canterbury Uni MTB club runs regular shuttles through the year. Good times.
