Bike Glendhu Signature Events
The Can-Am BGXC
The 2nd annual Can-Am BGXC is taking place April 23rd, 2023. Let’s put some rubber to the ground.
This 35km cross-country mountain bike race consists of five laps of an epic 7km loop that links up Switch it Up, Monsoon Hoon, Rocky Borrow, Methane Exit & the 4WD van track to bring you the most fast and fun XC race this side of the Cook Strait (we’re not biased).
Save the date, registration opens soon.
