Tykes on bikes


Queenstown’s most famous twins prepare for Sunday’s season-opening jam at the resort’s Gorge Road Jump Park.

Identical five-year-old twins Jake (left) and Theo Riddle became internet sensations last summer – their dad Steve’s video of them performing tricks on their BMX bikes has now registered almost 1.4 million hits.

Sunday’s jam, starting at 3pm, also marks the opening of the redesigned learners’ area, which has doubled in size.

The park, with more than 50 jumps, is maintained by the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club in conjunction with contractor Nathan Greenwood.
