We have also hooked up some pretty good deals with some local businesses for the weekend: Breakfast will be available from MOUNT BEAUTY BAKERY, the one between kiewa/hollands streets from 7am each morning, and if you ask for the "DOWNHILL DEAL" youll get the choice of a bacon/egg roll and coffee, or toastie/croisant and coffee for TEN BUCKS.

Most downhillers like BEER, which is handy, because Pete at SWEETWATER BREWERY has hooked us up with a DOWNHILL BEER AND DINNER DEAL which after a day of runs will be awesome.
