Conifer Park, Rabbit Island
Saturday 10 March 2012, 12.00 pm – 3.00 pm
The Get Moving Rabbit Island Family Fun day will give everyone the chance to have a go at a range of fun activities in one of our regions most beautiful beachside venues.
For cyclists the activities include a ride along Tasman’s Great Taste Trail (with the option to go across to Mapua on the Ferry for lunch or coffee), or for those looking for a little more adrenaline how about a loop or two around the Conifer Park Mountain Bike Tracks or the new Moturoa Forest Mountain Bike Track?
You can also test your cycling skills on the Ride On Bike Skills trailer elements – can you ride the see-saw, the board walk and the skinny planks?
There will be a free “Bike Check” with mechanics from Stoke and Village Cycles on hand to give your bike a once over and make any simple adjustments. They will also be able to identify any more serious mechanical conditions and advise on solutions.
For those on foot there is of course always great walking and running on the beach, on the forest tracks or you can take on the challenge of the permanent orienteering course. On the Get Moving Rabbit Island Family Fun day the Nelson Orienteering Club is setting up a family friendly orienteering course that will give you a taste of what orienteering is about. Plus you can talk to club members about getting involved in future activities and detail on the permanent orienteering course.
We will also have information on Get Moving, the website, the clubs and groups, and upcoming events. There will be a BBQ for snacks to keep your energy levels up and spot prizes for lucky participants.
The Get Moving event is for all ages and abilities and is totally FREE.
There are lots of amazing places to walk, run and cycle in Nelson City and the Tasman District and the Get Moving project is all about helping and encouraging everyone to get out there and enjoy them. Whether you are doing it with friends, family or as an individual, having a go for the first time, re-discovering, or celebrate the riding you already do all that matters is that you get out there and Get Moving!
And there’s many more exciting activities and events coming!
