The BGXC

The Can-AM BGXC at Bike Glendhu

Hampshire Holiday Parks – Glendhu Bay presents the 3rd annual BGXC, with support from Trek. Happening April 21st, 2024, let’s put some rubber to the ground.

Sunshine, sweat and a seriously good time. The BGXC is back and we’ve freshened up the format: a new course, along with new race options. Choose from 3 laps, 5 laps or a relay with your mates on an epic 7km cross-country loop that links some of BG’s crowd favourite tracks.

We’re stoked to bring you the most fast and fun cross-country mountain bike race this side of the Cook Strait (we’re not biased).
