The 6th running of the Christchurch Biketoberfest will run from Friday October 29th to Sunday 31st.

The outline of events will be as follows:

Friday 29th – Ruapuna

  • Basic Rider Training
  • Guinness World Record Attempt at the Longest Front Wheelie (just riding on the FRONT wheel)

Saturday 30th – Manchester Street, Christchurch

  • Lower Manchester Street (where all the bike shops are) will be closed from 1300 to 1600
  • There will be bike displays by all the Manchester Brands
  • There will be live displays (trials bikes etc)

  • The Martin Jet Pack will be there again and doing something special
  • Party that night at Iconic on Manchester Street with heaps of prizes being given away

On the Saturday morning there will be a Fire Engine Display at the Central Fire Station on Kilmore Street (we think) so go and support these guys.

Sunday – October 31st

  • Group ride to as yet unconfirmed location.  It would be great if all Clubs could make this part of their regular events as we would like as many bikes as possible at the event.  we will all leave from a central location and make our way to the destination by any means you want.

Volunteers Required

Each club needs to submit some volunteer labour for both the Friday and Saturday events.  Please let your Area rep know if you are able to help out.  Jobs will include:

  • Marshalling at Ruapuna
  • Marshalling on Manchester St
  • Rubbish Collection at the end of the event (Saturday after 1600)
  • Help with organizing events
