Due to the weather we have changed the date to Sunday the 20th March.
Bourkes Bikes is hosting a Sunday Shop Social Ride! On this ride we are going to be meeting at the Coopernook Hotel and then heading out into the Coopernook Forest and Coorabakh National Park on a fun but challenging gravel ride.
We will first head up to Vincent's lookout and then onto Newbys lookout before heading on back to finish at the Coopernook Hotel for a cold drink and some lunch. This ride is around 47km long with approximately 1000m of climbing so will require a decent amount of fitness to be able to complete, bring your climbing legs!!! It would also be a good idea to bring a snack to have up at the lookout.
Alternatively it will be a great ride if you are on a Ebike.

What is a gravel ride? Just like it sounds it is a ride on gravel roads!
This ride is for you if you have a bit of fitness behind you and bike that is suitable for gravel roads. During one of these rides you may encounter a variety of surfaces from asphalt to rough gravel roads and even the odd bit of single track, as well as a little bit of climbing.
Still an easy social pace with plenty of chance to rest and regroup.
Ride time of around 3-4 hours
You will need a bike in good working order, a helmet, enclosed footwear, gloves and plenty of water. Also bring along things you may need to keep you going. For example spare tube, tools, pump, etc.
See you on the trails...
