Rabbit Ridge Bike Resort in Queenstowns, Gibbston Valley had its stage 1 opening last weekend (Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th of April). This invite only opening showcased the 1st stage of the bike resort with trails accessible to families through to the advanced riders.
There was a great turn out of young and old, with riders being surprised by the number of trails and the great condition of the ground even at this early stage of construction.
Rabbit Ridge will operate year round and will have its grand opening in September 2013 when day and year passes will be available. Facilities planned for the site are bike hire, coaching, uphill shuttles, restaurant and accommodation.
Rabbit Ridge is a partnership between Gibbston Valley wines and Around The Basin cycle tours Queenstown. www.rabbitridge.co.nz.
