Juliana Bicycles and the Enduro World Series have joined forces to stoke out the ladies this year. We’re offering a day out on the bike with Juliana ambassador Anka Martin to get a glimpse into life at the EWS races. Come and join us to be part of the event and experience the vibe without any of the pressure to race. We’ll be shredding trails, watching some race action, mingling with the pros, sampling some local food, sharing a beer or two, Q&As and much more. Each venue will be slightly different highlighting that specific venue, the country, the culture, and of course, its trails.

ROTORUA – Friday, March 24
Join Anka in Rotorua for a micro adventure getaway to the beautiful and sacred Rainbow Mountain where we’ll ride the loop trail passing through a very active geothermal field. Once at the summit, we’ll be treated to views of Mt Tarawera in the north, Paeroa Ranges to the west and the volcanic peaks of the Tongariro National Park to the south. After ripping down the Te Ranga downhill we’ll roll down to Kerosene Creek to soak our tired legs while enjoying a lovely picnic lunch under the shade of the pangas. After lunch, it’s time to head back to Rotorua where we ditch the bike gear to go to the opening ceremony of the EWS and Crankworx festivities for a traditional Maori welcoming.
