The EVENT PROGRAM for 2020 Bike Buller Festival is now available and is essential reading for all riders with schedule, course details, maps and more. READ IT HERE.
The Bike Buller Festival is not all about bikes – in fact we’ve got a full calendar of activities and engagements to keep those without wheels pretty busy as well.
FRIDAY: THE ABOM BISTRO – RIDERS WELCOME
Friday 6th March, from 5:00pm
There is no better way to get kick off a great weekend than by meeting old friends and new at the ABOM bar and bistro on Athlete’s Walk. Located just 150m from the Village Square the ABOM will be open all weekend (from 9:00am til late) and serve breakfasts, lunch and pub style meals. 2:00pm – 6:00pm happy hour!
SATURDAY: SUMMER SESSIONS
Saturday 7th March, from 4:00pm
Two jaw dropping spectator events will get you pumped on Saturday night with:
These events are designed so we can watch with a beer in one hand and a burger in the other and are a true spectacle for anyone who’s on the mountain.
The SLOPESTYLE event is the real-deal Redbull style competition with huge jumps and see it to believe it airtime.
Meanwhile the 16” Dual Slalom is crazy-funny as two riders go head-to-head down a grass dual-slalom track on kids 16” bikes.
SUNDAY: ‘PICNIC IN THE PARK’ – FOOD, WINE AND MUSIC FESTIVAL
Sunday 9th March, 11:00am – 5:00pm
Organised by Vee Agency, the ‘Picnic in the Park’ festival at Mirimbah is an afternoon of indulgence, including:
- Local cold climate wines and beers
- A fantastic range of quality regional food and produce
- Kids activities
- Live music from a range of talented musicians and entertainers
With the sun shining, the Delatite River running right past and the beautiful grass parkland all around this is simply the best way to wrap up your Sunday for riders and non-rider alike. Roll out the picnic blanket and make yourself comfortable!
Super-D riders get free entry to Picnic in The Park upon presentation of your number plate. Non-competitors are $35 per adult entry price, which includes a free glass and a free wine or beer. Kids 7-15 are $15. Kids under 7 are free. (If you are a spectator and just want to collect your rider then you will have to wait outside the Park otherwise you must pay the entry fee).
Book your TRANSFER back up Mt Buller: Bus + trailer lift for you + bike is available from the Picnic at the Park at Mirimbah up Mt Buller but YOU NEED TO BOOK it with us before the event. If not then you can car pool, get a ride with friends or ride back up (if you are mad!).
SUNDAY: FREE MTB MOVIE
Sunday 8th March, 8:00pm onwards
We will project an a-grade MTB movie on the big screen to round out a huge weekend. Watching the best riders in the world on a big screen with a room full of other riders adds to the stoke and is always a hoot.
