This is GPS location for parking. Parking is paved and at a dead end. If full, park further along the sides of the road. Do not park along the Round About as cars use that frequently.
Long Ride ~25km with ~ 900m of climbing.
That’s right. It’s more climbing than normal. Don’t even need to smash the trail. You will get a workout just riding it. Trail is a combination of double tracks, single tracks, palm, jungle, some exposed area, some flowy downhills, some steep uphills and suits the adventurous.
Medium Ride ~19km with ~ 560m of climbing.
Suited for those who want to ride some of the long trail but with lesser climbing.
Less of an adventure. But a happy ending is still likely in store for you.
Short Ride ~ 10km and ~300m of climbing.
Expect ~4-5 checks/circulars. All ridable. Mostly sheltered. Kid friendly. On rare occasions, be wary if descends are more rutted than they are capable of handling.
All distances are excluding checks.
NO HELMET NO RIDE!!
TIPS FOR THE RIDE
Bring sufficient liquids and hydrate! (Min 3L if riding the long. 3.5L if consume heavily).
Electrolytes & snacks recommended especially if attempting the long on a hot day.
PHONE with basic navigation (e.g Googlemaps). In case you bail at unexpected locations.
Stay on Paper!!! If you ride and you are off paper, please do the right thing and back track to find paper and follow paper!!
Ride in a group and put on a big smile on your face as it’ll help to ease the pain.
Did we mention Stay on Paper!!!!!!!
Work together at the CHECKS and ensure it is closedbefore taking off.
Bash Piss “Bell End Paul” has a fab deal on refreshments for the after ride, please bring some cash, some forgot last time and we are still chasing late payment.
