CANCELLED!! WEEKEND SHOP RIDE - LOW LEVEL INTERMEDIATE

This ride has been CANCELLED due to a severe weather warning in place. OK all you intermediate-ish MTB warriors. Time to buckle up the helmet and join us for another incredible Bourkes Bikes Weekend Shop Ride. And yes, this week it's gonna be for what we're calling low-level intermediate riders. 'WTF does that mean?', we hear you ponder. Good question, glad you asked It's for anyone who is better than an absolute beginner, but not yet ready to tackle the crazy jumps, drops, rock gardens and other structures that tend to land you at the doctor's surgery. So, if that sounds like you, and you want to get yo' MTB on this Saturday, feel free to join us. We'd love to have you tag along! Here's all

Friday Gravel Grind - SICK!

Lovers of the Bourkes Friday Gravel Grind will be disappointed to hear that it's not on this week because Mick has a massive case of the sooks - and the man flu! Whilst he seems to be getting over it, he's told us in his most concerned voice that he doesn't want to risk relapsing into the catatonic state that most men find themsleves in when they get a bit of a sniffle So unfortunately there won't be any guided gravel grinding this Friday morning, but feel free to get out there yourself and explore nature! #ShopRide

FRIDAY GRAVEL GRIND - CEDAR PARTY FUN!

It's time for another edition of the Bourkes Bikes Friday morning Gravel Grind! And this week we're hitting one of our most popular gravel grinding systems - Cedar Party! The rural area to the North West of Taree is fertile ground for planting tyres on gravel, and this Friday's ride will see us put in about 25kms of riding on a mixture of gravel and tar. Should be a blast, but it'll also be cold so bring your cold weather gear. At 6am the sun is just coming up, so having a light would be an advantage but not a necessity. We hope to see you there! Read on for all the details: WHEN: Friday 25th May, Roll out from start point at 6am SHARP! WHERE: Start at corner of Irkanda Drive and Cedar Party

WEEKEND SHOP RIDE - GRAVITY ROAD TRIP!

This Sunday the 27th of May the Hastings Valley Mountain Bike Riders club is hosting a Gravity Enduro race at the Jolly Nose MTB Park at Bonny Hills. Being closet gravity merchants ourselves, we thought 'What better way to prepare for the Enduro on Sunday than to have a road trip up to Jolly Nose on Saturday and run the courses?!' And so that's what's happening this Saturday. Yep, it's a good old fashioned road trip! And it's definitely going to be one for those who like their riding pointing downwards. There'll be jumps and drops aplenty - not one for the faint of heart! And riding between trail heads will be uber casual, just like an Enduro race - there's no prizes for getting to the top o

Friday Gravel Grind - Make Mikey Happy!

Last Friday, our rad Friday Gravel Grinds kicked off - with a fizz. Poor Mikey was the only one who turned up. Fair chop we reckon, it was a terribly windy and cold day. So with no one else turning up, Mikey cracked the sads, took a quick snapshot of hit massive lower lip (above) and went home! THIS WEEK'S RIDE WILL BE MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL!! There's already two or three confirmed attendees, so it's gonna be on like Donkey Kong! Same start location and time, but if you don't know that info read on! WHEN: Friday 18th May, 6am SHARP START!

BOURKES MORNING GRAVEL GRIND - THEY'RE BAAA-AACK!!!

We hope we haven't confused you with the picture - but it's a shot from the movie Poltergeist. The young lass is looking at the TV and singing 'They're baaa-ack!'. And so it is with our Weekly gravel grind rides! We started these a couple of seasons ago, and now they're back!! There's a change of day - Now we'll be heading out on FRIDAY MORNINGS bright and early, so anyone who needs to get to work can still join us! There'll be a standing start time of 6am weather permitting, with the start/finish location varying according to where we want to ride. We're starting THIS FRIDAY the 11th of May at 6am, and for the first week we'll venture into the forests towards Old Bar. As such, we're gonna m

WEEKEND SHOP RIDE - BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE!

Righteo, it's time again for another Bourkes Bikes Weekend Ride!! This week it's a beginner/intermediate ride on the excellent Kiwarrak MTB trails. There's nothing really crazy to know about this ride. It'll be your bog standard ride through the bush, possibly going to some of the jump trails close to the event centre, but then again maybe not! It all depends on who turns up and what they wanna do! The only confirmed thing is that it's going to be a hoot! Here's all the details: WHEN: Saturday 12th May, roll out of the carpark at 2pm sharp! WHERE: Kiwarrak MTB Park carpark---CLICK HERE FOR MAP BRING: MTB, helmet, gloves, glasses, water and sunscreen SKILL LEVEL: Beginner/Intermediate - Appro

SATURDAY SHOP RIDE - INTERMEDIATE

RIGHTEO sports fans, it's time to pump up the tyres on your MTB and join us again for one of Bourkes Bikes famous WEEKEND SHOP RIDES! This week we're going a bit more extreme than your garden variety beginner ride - yep, it's an INTERMEDIATE ride! We'll be riding up and down, over and under, around and through a bunch of the techy, steep and purpose built stuff that the Kiwarrak MTB Park is getting very well known for. Probably not the right ride for the beginners, this ride will be a bunch of fun for those rocking skills that have been gained over numerous MTB sojourns into the bush. SO! If you're up for it, down for it, any which way for it, here's all the deets! WHEN: Saturday 5th May, ro
