Martinborough Lions.


Set on the private farmland of the historic
Huangarua, Puruatanga and Oystershell
farms, this family-friendly event is
designed to give riders of varying
abilities a chance to experience
mountainbike riding around the local
Martinborough hills and farms. There are
even fabulous walking opportunities as well.

The Skyline Challenge is set to take
place on ANZAC Sunday 23 April 2017.
The first ride will start at 9:00 am. The rides
are designed to make the most of the
hilly terrain for the expert riders, provide
a challenge for weekend riders and have
an easier course for novices. There will
also be a kids 3k course over flat terrain for
riders 8 years of age and under. The
8k course is also suitable for walkers,
who can enjoy stunning autumn views
over Martinborough Wine Village.
