There is a little rain forecast for this Saturday but hopefully it holds off for this weeks intermediate level shop ride.
On this ride there will be a little bit of climbing and some more challenging trails but as with all our rides there will be plenty to stops to rest and regroup, plus there are B lines around any of the features we come across.
Please be aware that the Kiwarrak State Forest, which the MTB park is part of, is still closed to the public following the fires last year. Forestry have given permission for MTBA and Manning Great Lakes Tip Riders (MGLTR) club members to ride within the MTB park though.
So if you are coming along to our ride and are not already a MTBA or MGLTR club member you will need to sign up first or wont be able to participate. There are a variety of levels of membership that you can sign up for, including a FREE trial, so follow this link to join!
Meeting Point: Main car park just off the Buckets Way in the Kiwarrak MTB Park. You can find a map HERE.
Date: Saturday 15/8/20
Time: Rolling out of the car park at 2:30pm sharp
What is an intermediate ride?
If you find yourself conquering the green trails with ease and enjoy hitting the blue ones, with the odd black thrown in, then come along to an intermediate ride. During one of these rides you will encounter more technical and challenging trails as well as moderate amounts of climbing.
We will ride at a reasonable pace with fewer rest stops, but still keep the ride nice and social.
Ride time of around 2 hours.
You will need a mtb 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...!
