The latest in mountain biking news will have passionate riders gearing up to experience brand new terrain.
The new Skyline mountain bike park is the world’s first year-round gondola accessed mountain bike park.
The park features 8.5km of downhill trail, with the bonus of riders being able to take the gondola back to the top instead of biking! Eleven of Skyline’s gondolas can now carry riders and their bikes which adds up to 3,000 rides a day. Once at the top, riders will navigate their way down the side of Mt. Ngongotaha, which challenges them with jump berms and other interesting features.
Don’t worry if you’re not an experienced rider just yet, the terrain has been designed for all levels of difficulty and first time riders will enjoy the easy downhill ride, whilst the more experiences can find all sorts of added challenges along the route to keep them entertained.
Rotorua is increasingly becoming known as a premier mountain biking destination, so the new park will further strengthen this reputation.
