The October social ride will be held on Sunday 11 October and will feature a visit to the magical Muckleford Forest to check out some of the semi-secretive singletrack in this area. The trails in this network are generally flowing and less technical in nature, although some newer trails have exploited local geological and Goldfields features.
We are planning a ride of approximately 20 km that should take around 2.5 hours. We will likely split into two groups to offer both a faster-paced and a more social-paced journey (this group can also opt for a slightly shorter route). Riders with beginner to intermediate skills are welcome but must have a reasonable level of fitness and all riders must be self-sufficient with food, water and spares.
Based on current Covid-19 restrictions each riding group will be able to accommodate up to ten riders.
The ride will commence at 10am from the historic Red White and Blue poppet head on Bells Lane Track. Head west on the Muckleford School Road, past Jeralee Boarding Kennels and continue on Bells Lane Track to the intersection with Red White and Blue Track. There is plenty of parking (but no coffee van).
