Our monthly social ride will be held on Sunday 17 September and will introduce intermediate-level riders to a semi-secret network of trails in the northern reaches of the Muckleford Forest. A combination of old singletrack and trail bike tracks are gradually being rediscovered, realigned and reconnected. These trails are typically narrow and undulating with some rock features included. Altogether you can expect a ride of close to 15 kms.
Depending on numbers we may split into two groups but we will need to reassemble at each junction as the trails are quite well disguised. All riders must be self-sufficient with food, water and spares. A well maintained/working mountain bike and helmet which meets Australian standards are required.
The ride will commence at 09:30am at the historic Gower School on the Castlemaine-Maldon Road, Gower. There is plenty of parking (but no coffee van).
