This April the ENGEO Dream Trust and Christchurch Adventure Park are teaming up to run an event to raise funds for kids that need a little extra help to get out and onto bikes.
With CAP making our awesome Port Hills even more accessible for mountain biking, we want all Christchurch kids to experience how great riding is, however for some the cost to get started is prohibitive.
High-school students aged between 12 and 17 years from all over Christchurch will have the opportunity to be nominated, or to nominate themselves, for support to give mountain biking a crack, thanks to this partnership between ENGEO Dream Trust and the Christchurch Adventure Park.
The proceeds raised will go to developing a 'Riding Scholarship' for ten youths to come mountain biking. This will include providing a bike, lessons at CAP and a lift pass to ensure they get up the hill and practice their skills regularly. From that group of ten, we will offer full year scholarships to those that show the greatest promise and enthusiasm for more.
