Exciting New Mtb Event For North Canterbury

Postby PeteHalligan on Thu 2/Jul/09 5:14pm

A major treat is in store for mountain bikers of all abilities with Waipara winery Mud House teaming up with award winning event director Pete Halligan to present a festival of off-road cycling. Already famous for their “Village Green” concerts, the team at Mud House are now intent on providing their exclusive brand of hospitality to riders of all abilities attending “The Mud House Mudride” in late April 2010.
Run across three days the event will incorporate a cycle expo on Friday, a range of cross country events catering for riders from primary school age to national elite on Saturday and the South Island Cyclecross championship on Sunday. The festival will wind up with a series of demonstration matches of Cycle Polo, a great entertainment option for riders and spectators alike.
Having established an unparalleled reputation as the event director of the Graperide, the largest on-road cycle event in the South Island, Pete Halligan and his team are looking forward to the chance to return to their ‘fat tire’ roots. “The Mud House tracks will be a wonderful mix of challenge and exhilaration for all levels of rider” he said. “From recreational Mums and Dads to our national elite there will be an opportunity for everyone to get out there in the crystal clear North Canterbury air and enjoy the magnificent terrain and scenery Mud House and the Mount Cass area has to offer”.
While reluctant to predict numbers for the inaugural event, Halligan concedes that his aim is to make the event “the largest off-road cycle event in the South Island”. Depending on the weather the mud may be all in the name but bet on one thing, the Mud House Mudride will be a great opportunity to “get some dirt on your tires”.
