Our shop rides have been a bit sporadic of late. Getting the new shop ready is taking up a lot of our ride time! But we have time this week to get back out there. Woohoo!!
Its a beginner level MTB ride this week. A great one to come alone to if you are just starting out on you mountain bike journey or even if you are a seasoned rider it will still be a fun ride!
Now that its daylight saving we will be starting our ride at 3pm.
Are you going to join us this week?
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 17/10/20
Time: Rolling out of the car park at 3pm sharp
These ride are for everyone! Whether you are just starting out on your mountain bike path or have been riding for years, these rides are for you!
On a beginner ride you will find a fun and supportive environment that is a great way to learn the trails and meet other riders.
The pace will be kept social and the trails will flow!! We will come across the occasional tricky bit for you to try out if you would like to but there is no pressure to ride something you are not comfortable with.
Still an easy social pace with plenty of chance to rest and regroup.
Ride time of around 1 - 1.5 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.
When you come along to one of our rides be aware that they are RIDE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Mountain bike ride and cycling in general is an inherently dangerous sport and as such Bourkes Bicycles take no responsibility for any injury to yourself, a third party or for any damage to your bike/belongings. We highly recommend that you have your own personal health insurance or MTBA membership to cover yourself.
See you on the trails...!
