Thanks to the awesome folks at the Nelson Mountain Bike Club, Gravity Nelson Ltd has been given the GREEN LIGHT to offer Guided and Coached Wairoa Gorge services to NMTBC members at the Wairoa Gorge!
We can offer these services in two formats:
- On a standard club operational day our guide/coach can accompany you and your group on the club shuttle vehicle.
- On a day the club does not operate we can provide a private gravity shuttle and the guide/coach.
This is the perfect opportunity for riders to:
- Go to the Gorge for the first time in a supportive environment with a Guide/Coach able to help you choose the best trails for your abilities and trail conditions, and to coach you through more difficult features. Plus session specific features to improve your skills in a progressive manner.
- Go to the Gorge to get REVENGE, perhaps your last trip to the Gorge didn’t go so well, and you want to go back and conquer some trail features that intimidated you previously, Gravity’s awesome Guides and Coaches can help you master trails and show the Gorge who is boss.
- Go to the Gorge to advance your riding, the Gorge provides such a wide range of trails that we are able to set up custom coaching sessions for riders to develop their overall skills… this is especially true for Intermediate or Advanced riders who feel stuck in a rut.
- Go to the Gorge with some mates and manage more effectively the timing of your runs to maximise the fun without getting overly tired, mixing in carefully curated half and full runs to best use your time.
- Eliminate the time pressure of the “bus time-table” style of the shuttles at the Gorge by utilising the Gravity Shuttle with a coach to have the shuttle wait for your whole group, and not have to sprint at break neck speeds to avoid missing the bus!
