Our May social ride will head to the Muckleford Forest on Sunday 15 May. The trails in this network are generally flowing and less technical in nature, with only a few short climbs; some newer trails have exploited local geological and Goldfields features. This ride will introduce some new trails through the forest.
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 medium-paced and a more social-paced journey. 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.
The ride will commence at 9:30am at 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).
A Rocky Riders (or other AusCycling) membership is recommended so you are covered by insurance while riding. An insurance waiver can be signed on the day if required.
