Well... it looks to be another wet weekend! So we will keep off the mountain bike trails so as not to excessive damage and will instead try and dodge the rain with a gravel ride.
Keep en eye out for updates as if it is raining at the time then we may call it off and just meet up for a drink at the Wynter later in the afternoon.
Leaving from the Wynter Tavern at 3pm and will end the ride back there with a nice cold drink and maybe a feed.
On this ride we will head out around the Moto road loop so will be around 35-40km and have around 150-200m of climbing. The ride will be suitable for anyone who has a bit of fitness, and a bike that can ride gravel/bitumen roads.

Difficulty: 35-40km with around 150-200m climbing. Looking to do around a 15-20km average speed.
What is a mixed terrain/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 2-3 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.
Please note that under the current health guidelines you need to be double vaccinated to be able to participate on our rides.
See you on the trails...
