Pursuits Abseil off Historic Bridge
Saturday 25th February 2017
The historic Lower Shotover Bridge once had century old cars chugging over it but today the Pursuit teams have had the pleasure of abseiling over the side of it. At 16 meters above the river below its a decent slide down the abseil rope with spectacular 360 views around them of the mountains. Not that they may have been looking as a fair bit of concentration is required. Team Quadzilla girls loved the experience being one of the first teams there. The original bridge was washed away in 1878 (big storm) and rebuilt by NZ Public Works. Today it forms part of the world famous Queenstown Biking Trails.
