Mountain Biking: Crankworx Rotorua

Monday, 12 November 2018

 Crankworx Rotorua is a world-renowned bike festival that kicks into gear each year in March. With a week of non-stop events, there is sure to be something for you to check out. At Rotorua Canopy Tours, we have a lot of keen mountain bikers, plus we love to get involved in local events. Read below for more information on what you can include in your action packed weekend at Crankworx. 

The city of Rotorua is no stranger to Crankworx, having now hosted the event for four years. With the events spread between the Skyline Gravity Park and the Whakarewarewa Forest, there is every reason to head along and watch. There will be international exhibitors such as Mons Royale and local exhibitors such as Torpedo7, plus biking celebrities.

Fun for all ages:

Crankworx will host more than just elite events, there's a photo challenge and activities for the kids as well!

The Deep Summer Photo Challenge will light up Eat Streat at the Lakefront on Saturday 24th March, with 6 photographers sharing their collection of culture, landscape and all things Crankworx Rotorua from the final 3 days of the event. Admission is 'free' and you can have a nice meal or grab a beanbag and lounge on the heated street.

The Kidsworx series is perfect for young riders! The entire week is dedicated to coaching the young ones and offering them a taste of competition. Designed for 12 years and under, its the perfect way to have an outdoors activity. You'll need a General Admission ticket for this but the kids participate for free!
