A Huge Thanks To Atlas & Friends for the Party of the Year

All of us at Queenstown Mountain Bike Club would like to say a HUGE thank you to Atlas and friends for putting on the most epic SOS party to date.

If you missed the event at Wynyard last Saturday we are absolutely gutted for you. Starting at 4pm the evening saw heaps of amazing local riders hitting the jumps, providing entertainment while the crowds drank tasty craft beer, ate some amazing BBQ’d delights, listened to some sweet tunes and bought numerous raffle tickets in the hope of winning one of the awesome prizes donated by local Queenstown businesses.

Mountain Biker Atlas SOS Party 2015

Atlas has been holding the SOS (Season of Shred) party for a number of years to raise money to help maintain and build new mountain bike trails in Queenstown.  This year they changed it up and decided to have a jump jam at Wynyard Bike Park which turned out to be a huge success.  Looking around the crowd must have been 700 strong at least.  The money was raised by the sale of the SOS t-shirts, raffle tickets and Atlas also donated money from the food and drink sales.

The money raised is going into maintaining the Wynyard Jump Park and also to help finish the Long Live The Loop project.
