New Committee member Huw Vellacott will be leading a gravel ride in the Fryers Ranges area on Sunday 2 April. The route of 40km contains a couple of decent climbs, so a moderate fitness level is required. A hardtail mountain bike, or gravel bike, will be perfect for the mostly unsealed roads. Bring water, some snacks and spares for the 2-3 hour loop.
The ride will depart from the Theatre Royal at 8am.
Pace – Moderate; Skill level – Beginner
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 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. Online registration closes on the morning of the event. Late registration accepted on day but please arrive early to complete.
