Time again to celebrate the end of an epic summer season and welcome the winter snow. Now (appropriately) renamed the Atlas Bike Convention (ABC), we review the season over some drinks, good food, footage of our adventures, great friends, banter and as always – made possible by our amazing sponsors – massive prizes!!!
This year the Atlas Bike Convention will be held on May 15, following Queenstown Mountain Bike Club's 'League of Gentlemen Fancy Dress' mega-train (mega-train is weather permitting). The party starts at 5pm – don't be shy to come rocking your mega-train attire.
As usual, we'll be expanding into neighbouring Farelli's Trattoria so that there's plenty of room for everyone to come down and enjoy themselves. Emerson's, Tuatara, and Zeffer are continuing their support of this good cause. All proceeds from the mega raffle are donated to the GC's at QMTBC. More support means more trails to enjoy!
The prize list keeps on growing. So far, we can confirm:
- Return flights to Vancouver, BC, Canada to test your skills on Rocky Mountain soil.
- 2016/2017 Skyline seasons pass, plus gondola & luge rides from QMTBC.
- G Force paragliding flights.
- Queenstown Snow Transport.
- Queenstown Rafting vouchers.
- Prizes from Altitude and Surveyor Thomson.
- Torpedo 7 bike gear.
- Bikeaholic bike stand.
- White Tiger Tattoo voucher.
- Canyon Swing Flying Fox ride.
- Southern Discoveries Milford Sound cruise.
The raffle starts at 8pm so be sure to grab your raffle tickets – on sale now at Select, Bikeaholic and of course at Atlas.
2 for $5, 5 for $10, 12 for $20
Mark it in your calendars and come celebrate with us!

The team at Atlas is proud to announce we have raised a WHOPPING $21,564 for the QMTBC this year! This is a combined fund between The GB’s Club and the Atlas SOS party. We could not have done it without everyone eating and drinking at Atlas between October and November – and of course the hundreds and hundreds of people who attended, participated and purchased raffle tickets and t-shirts at the Season of Shred Party!
The Atlas SOS Party (Season of Shred Party) is the grand finale to The GB's Club. The party moved up to Wynyard Freestyle Jump Park this year and included BBQs, beers, a DJ, local band Rules of Addiction, over 65 riders shredding in the Vertigo Huck-a-thon and the biggest raffle giveaway Queenstown has ever seen! This is the party people will talk about all year (especially because of the insane mosh pit!) After thousands of raffle tickets were sold and limited edition t-shirts worn by all, $10,560 was our grand SOS total. SUCCESS!
The raffle and SOS would not have been such a huge success without the help from these GB's: QMTBC | Ronnie Baker | Tom Tom Productions | Brandland | Bikeaholic | Queenstown Bike Taxis | Skyline Queenstown | Spa Hire Queenstown | Crankworx | Skyline Rotorua | Peterpans | Cardrona | Heliline | Queenstown Rafting | White Tiger | Outside Sports | Gibbston Valley | Fishing Charters | Carters | Spoke Magazine | Queenstown Health | Wide Open | Onsen | Mons Royale | AJ Hackett | Sram | Hells Gate | Southstar Shuttles | Novotel | Abracadabra Cafe.
Last year we were pretty blown away when we raised $12,144.50. However this year we almost doubled it – $21,564! Talk about hitting it out of the ball park! Atlas would again like to thank everyone that was involved – volunteers, sponsors, photographers, MC, drinkers, eaters, huckers – we definitely could not have done any of it without you!
Now bring on summer shredding!
