Ride In Style with Kona At Crankworx
Hit The Kokanee Crankworx Party This Summer With A Six-Day Travel Package To Whistler’s World Class Bike Park
KONAWORLD (May 27, 2009) – What are you doing in mid-August? Oh, that’s cool, mowing the lawn, getting a root canal and watching re-runs of The Bachelor. Hopefully not. So, we’re giving you the perfect chance to change your late summer itinerary and get up to Whistler’s premier Bike Park and ride with us.
KonaWorld Travels and the world-class Whistler Mountain Bike Park have teamed up to offer you a kick-ass, six-day travel package to get you on the trail and breathing fresh mountain air.
Focused around this year’s Kokanee Crankworx – the world’s greatest mountain bike event – your “best vacation ever” starts on Aug. 12 and runs through Aug 19. Enjoy an extreme week of watching the sport’s best athletes compete, while exploring 150 miles of buff singletrack and 5,000 vert of lift-accessed, gravity-fueled Bike Park runs – with classic’s like A-Line, Crank It Up and Ninja Cougar. To top things off you’ll be surrounded by five-star cuisine, alpine vistas and free live music.
Crankworx runs from Aug 8-16, so you’ll be getting the best of both worlds – the crazy pulse of freeride mania along with the more relaxed pace of a few days post Crankworx to enjoy Whistler Blackcomb, the Bike Park, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola and Whistler village. The six-day package includes: daily lift tickets with Bike Park guides and instruction, rental of a Kona Garbanzo or Stab bikes, helmet, gloves and armour, a welcome reception, VIP seats for some freeride event viewing, a celebrity ride with a Kona pro, meal discounts, BBQ and more. You don’t have to eat, sleep and breathe mountain biking either – there’s something super-fun to ride for all skill levels and enough entertainment options within shouting distance to keep you occupied.
For more than six years, Kokanee Crankworx has continued to make its mark as the most ground-breaking festival of its kind bringing in thousands of mountain bike enthusiasts and backflippin’, 720 huckin’ athletes each year.
KonaWorld Travels works in tandem with local Kona partners to promote cycling adventure in rewarding destinations around the globe. Where in the Kona World are you going?
