May Women’s Social Ride – La Larr Ba Gauwa

Our women’s social ride on Sunday 19th May will explore the recently repaired and reopened trails at La Larr Ba Gauwa Mountain Bike Park in Harcourt, on Dja Dja Wurrung Country. LLBG MTB Park has purpose built trails with stunning scenery and terrain.

We will meet at the mountain bike park car park, 60 High Street Harcourt (opposite the CFA ) at 8:45am for a 9am roll out. Ride leaders will be Mandy, Amy and Sally.

We will ride to the trailhead along the Picnic Gully Road path, then onto Barramul (track 6), Wanyarra (track 1) and the intermediate option of Girra (track 2) to take you back to the trailhead.
For those who choose not to ascend and descend the Girra trail, you will stay on the Wanyarra trail to take you back to the trailhead.
Our final leg will take us back to our cars in the Harcourt Township.

A medium to intermediate level of fitness is required. An intermediate level of skill is required for Girra (track 2) and Barramul (track 6). If you don’t feel confident riding over technical features on Barramul (track 6), there will be plenty of time to walk your bike over or around them. In addition, there will be time for breaks, chats and laughs.

All riders must be self-sufficient with food, water and spares. A well maintained mountain bike and helmet, which meets Australian standards, are required.
We have a no-drop policy to ensure no one is left behind.

Meet the trails:
Barramul (track 6) is rated as a More Difficult Blue Intermediate that starts with a gradual, undulating climb through rocky outcrops. This track has a fast and flowy descent with berms, rollers and rock features.

Wanyarra (track 1) is rated as an Easy Green with smooth trails and gentle slopes suited to beginner riders. The scenic ride takes you through open woodland, large pines, and the Oak Forest.

Girra (track 2) is rated as a More Difficult Blue Intermediate. Girra begins with gentle berms before entering switchbacks to gain elevation, taking you over some tricky rock features but worth it for the view.
The downhill back to the trailhead is a big descent with berms, rock drops, jumps, tabletops and rock features. Keep your hands on the brakes if you want to keep your wheels on the ground.

A Rocky Riders (or other AusCycling) membership is required so you are covered by insurance while riding. Riders not holding a current membership need to sign up on the day. If you are not in a position to sign up for a full membership you can sign up for the AusCycling 4 Week Free Trial or Lifestyle monthly Membership for $9.00.
