Over the years we have partnered with groups and individuals across the Queenstown region. Being a locally owned and operated business, we understand the value of supporting local and the benefits and enjoyment that comes from community engagement.
We are an Official Partner with the Queenstown Trails Trust, the organisation responsible for the development, maintenance and promotion of the trail network. The Trust does fantastic work in creating a world-class trail, NZ’s most popular Great Ride. By partnering with the Trust, we offer our ongoing support as the trail expands and the benefits this has for the wider community.
For many years Steve (our General Manager) has dedicated much of his spare time to local community groups like the Queenstown Kayak Club. When not at work or riding on a bike, Steve can often be found coaching on the lake. In 2019 he was shortlisted for the ‘Spirit of the Wakatipu’ Award, partly because of his commitment to local community groups like the kayak club.
We are proud to be affiliated with multisport athlete and all-round wonder woman Simone Maier. She is a fantastic role model, particularly in getting young girls interested in an active lifestyle, and a great ambassador for our brand.
We’re also involved with Wakatipu High School, running a free bike maintenance workshop to get the kid’s bikes in good working order.
If you’re a local group or individual and have an idea about partnering with Around The Basin, please do reach out, we’d be keen to hear your ideas.
