The Women’s social ride focuses on creating a supportive, inclusive and encouraging environment, connecting with other women and spending time in our beautiful local surrounds. Teen girls who are confident mountain bikers are also welcome to join us.
On the 28th August our ride will sample the Goldfields Track from the Chewton end. Assemble at the Theatre Royal in Hargraves Street, Castlemaine for a 9:00 am start time. We will ride along Forest Creek to warm up and back along the Goldfields Track.
This ride is targeted at a beginner to intermediate skill level, conducted at a gentle pace and have a duration of approximately 1.5 to 2 hours. There will be a “no drop” policy – no one will be left behind. There will be an option to follow the ride with a catch up at a local café. Women with advanced mountain biking experience are welcome to come along to contribute to the supportive environment.
Please note this is not a skills clinic and riders must be self-sufficient with food, water and spares. You must have a well maintained mountain bike and well fitted helmet that meets Australian standards.
A Rocky Riders (or other AusCycling) membership is recommended so you are covered by insurance while riding. Riders without an Auscycling membership, do so at their own discretion. If you are not in a position to sign up for a full membership the AusCycling 4 Week Free Trial could be an alternative option to cover you or you can take out a Auscycling Lifestyle Membership for the month for $9.00.
In order for us to manage riders to ride leaders ratios please purchase a free ticket.
