Monkey Bridge is all about cycling as far as you can (preferably all the way) on a wooden bridge, on time.
We want to offer a public party down on Åre Strand in front of the Holiday Club Åre with a spectacular competition above and in the water. Registration is cheap and we are accepting a maximum of 250 participants so first come first served. Be part and compete in this prestigious MTB skills competition.
The bridge, which varies in both width and height, is placed in the water on sturdy pillars in front of the Holiday Club Åre. The distance is around 50-100 metres.
We provide the bike you will use.
Sounds simple, but wait and see, this appearances can be deceiving.
Afterparty with music and good times at Holiday Club Åre!
A warm welcome, both audience and participants!
A “Monkey Bridge” is originally a kind of bamboo bridge without handrails. Very difficult to walk on and dangerous for those who are not used to it. This type of bridge is still very popular in the Mekong Delta in Vietnam because of a complicated system of canals.
There are many different opinions about the name of Monkey Bridge. According to some, the image of people crossing the bridge without handrails looks very funny and resembles a monkey. Others believe that the name of the monkey bridge comes from the design. The narrow footbridge where “only monkeys can pass”.
So now we’ll see what people look like when The Monkey Bridge is to be crossed by bicycle.
-Show up by 19:00 and we let the show begin!
There are really no rules. Only that matters is to cycle as far as you can on the footbridge. That’s all.
ÅEW will supply bicycle so that all participants have the same conditions.
