Club Social Ride May – Walmer Forest

With this month’s social ride coming a week before the Shifty50 race, we will take the opportunity to ride the full Shifty50 course, giving any riders a chance to inspect the course, or just enjoy a ride around the Baco trails. The course for the Shifty50 event has been groomed in prearation so the trails will be in mint condition this weekend. This ride is best suited to riders of an intermediate ability level, and with reasonable fitness.  

The ride will take about 2.5 hours, and will cover approximately 23-25km of single track, with about 500 metres of climbing.  The intention is to ride at a fairly cruisy pace, with plenty of breaks and some time to inspect and practise any features along the way.  For anyone looking for a faster paced ride, there may be the opportunity to split the group depending on numbers.

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. And we have a no-drop policy to ensure no-one is left behind.

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 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 via the AusCycling events portal.
