May Social Ride – Baco Trails

Our monthly social ride will be held on Sunday 28 May and will preview the course for the Shifty Fifty event to be staged in the Walmer State Forest on the first weekend of June.  The course is around 25kms and features some of the best sections of the famed Baco trails.  The Baco trails comprise heaps of fast flowing single trail in an open woodland forest, with the odd technical feature (including rock gardens) thrown in for good measure.

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 meeting point will be at the new Walmer Forest trailhead off Daltons Road (up the hill from the Castlemaine Pony Club), with the ride commencing at 9am.
