Union JumpShip is a mountain biking and outdoor lifestyle festival presented by The Condo Group. This free event will take over Victoriaâ€™s Inner Harbour on June 22-24, 2012. Organized by The Dockside Mountain Bike Society to promote mountain biking in an urban environment, and showcase Victoria as an ideal city to live, work, and play.
From Friday, June 22 through Sunday, June 24, Union JumpShip 2012 will be taking over Victoriaâ€™s Inner Harbour with the summerâ€™s biggest free event. Big air and spectacular tricks on the high-seas, with a splash of live music, beer gardens, rider workshops, the JumpShip market, and a heap more. See the full schedule HERE and read below for Union JumpShip events in more detail.
The Muddbunnies are landing in Victoria with professional coaches and a uniquely feminine take on the sport we all know and love. Whatâ€™s that you say? I donâ€™t know how to mountain bike? Thatâ€™s okay! Get down to the Union Jumpship site the Saturday morning of the event and get your learn on with the best women riders in the world!
Coaches Darcy Turenne, Lisa Mason & Wendy Robinson will be on hand to encourage women to ride the Camp of Champions air bag in a non-intimidating atmosphere. Everyone will have a great time getting over their fears and learning new skills along the way. This is a great opportunity for women wanting to improve their jumping skills! Never mind Red Bull â€“ these ladies will give you wings!
If youâ€™ve been paying attention, youâ€™ve known for quite some time that Hoyne Brewing is the official beer sponsor of Union JumpShip, and is hosting the Hoyne Beer Garden. You most likely also know that Bin 4 is hosting a burger lounge within the beer garden as well.
What you didâ€™t know is what specifically is being served up. We are stoked to be able to tell you nowâ€¦
Hoyne is pouring their Hoyner Pilser, the Devilâ€™s Dream IPA and the all new Summer Haze Honey Hefe (image wasnâ€™t ready yet, so I drew one). There may be a surprise as well, so watch those kegs rolling in on the Geazone Eco-Couriers! Scroll down for Bin 4â€²s delicious menu line-up.
Union JumpShip is about to get real. I mean it was always real, but now we have 14 wooden jumps, and a 210 foot barge being parked first thing Monday morning to put them on. Jordie and the boys have been hard at work the past few days building them, and none of it could have happened without the kind folks at Castle Building Centre Victoria and Jordieâ€™s Mom. Yes, Jordieâ€™s Mom. She graciously supplied her backyard for the build! Check out the photo gallery below for the build, and of course, testing shots.
