Righteo all you crazy MTB freaks, time for another famous Bourkes Bikes weekend shop ride!
This time it's gonna be hairy and scary - an intermediate ride for all of you who want to test your mettle. And which scary trails are we going to assault on this epic pedal?
THE 20KM LOOP!
For those of you who don't know the 20km loop, you should just adopt the idea that this is just pain, pain, pain! Whilst 20km wouldn't be much on a gravel grind, in the forest it's considerable, and when you see the trails it takes in, it almost becomes a death march!
So if you haven't figured it out by now, this ride is NOT for beginners or those with some handling skills but no fitness. This ride is much more suited to those of us who are bike handling weapons and possess a cardio system like Winx!
Fortunately, there are some bail out points on the loop, so if we somehow have a wide-eyed innocent beginner stumble on the ride and choose (despite our best recommendations) to back themselves, we might be able to cut out some of the 'WTF' sections.
Regardless, it's on like Donkey Kong! If you' think your suited to it, we'll see you there. Here's the deets:
