Escape Mt Crawford Mountain Bike event

Just up from where I live, is Miramar Mountain Tracks – a joint venture by the Miramar Track Project (through the Wellington Mountain Bike Club) and the Wellington City Council. Today, 19 January 2015 there was an event called “Escape Mt Crawford” which was a series of downhill timed runs. It was really well set up with martials and event tape guiding the riders down the correct runs.

A portrait of a young rider getting ready. His Dad was also geared up and riding which was cool too see. I talked with them about WORD http://word.org.nz/, a really cool Wellington initiave for Youth MTB adventures.

I set this portrait up of another WORD member in the shade on top of a tabletop on the pump track.

My boy James was suitably impressed and looked out at all the competitors making swishing sounds and inspiring him to have a go himself:
