ESCORTS New family event expected to be popular Family fun: Milla and Stella Gibson at Rabbit Island. The Nelson Mountain Bike Club will be running a new mountainbike event at Rabbit Island on Sunday, March 24 aimed at family participation. The club, which is currently the largest in the country with more than 700 members, organise many events from The Mini Mountain Bike Series through to the popular Mid-Winter Breakout, a six-hour team event cur- rently run at Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. When running the 2012 cross- country series last year, organiser Wayne Pool noted a father and his young son had entered the event in two different classes but rode together. He said this sparked an idea to have an event that a whole family could enjoy together. This new event titled, 4 for Four, is a four-hour team relay where each of the four team members will complete a loop of a simple trail consisting of 50 per cent single track and 50 per cent gravel road. Each team will have a card which they will click with a hole punch to record the completed lap before handing the card to the next rider. There will be no age limit but any rider under seven must be accompanied by an adult rider. A team can consist of any combination of gender or age but must have four members. Each rider can do as many or as few laps as they like. We will be starting at midday and finishing at 4pm with the intention that people will take advantage of the facilities and have a barbecue and go for a swim post riding our event,'' Wayne said. The whole emphasis of the 4 for Four is family fun. My seven- year-old daughter rode the course in her usual casual style in 25 minutes.'' See nelsonmountainbikeclub.org.nz They're off! Here we go: Race director Terry Sheldrake starts one of the girls' swim legs. Waiting to start: Jess Davidson piggy- backs her friend Kenzie Gurr. Well done kids: Clifton Terrace School principal Rob Wemyss with his students who participated in the Sanitarium Weet-Bix Kids Tryathlon. Looking focused: Emma Lynch leaves the transition area. Where is it: Maisie Bergman looks for her water bottle during the bike transition. Arecord number of more than 1700 children enjoyed perfect late summer conditions as they took part in the 21st annual Weet-Bix Tryathlon at Tahunanui last Sunday. Racing either as individuals or in teams of three, the children took part in a short sea swim in shallow water, followed by a four or eight-kilometre bike ride depending on their age grade, and a 1.5km run. Photographer Virgina Woolf went along to enjoy the action. Keeping cool: Harmonie Whitnall in the bike leg. Taking the plunge: Lining up for the start of the girls' swim leg.
