Social Rides

The goldfields region of central Victoria is blessed with heaps of singletrack featuring various degrees of detail and difficulty. Castlemaine is central to this network of trails and makes a perfect base for exploring the region.

Each month the Club offers a general social ride designed to introduce riders to selected sections of the local trail network. Rides vary from forest tracks to rocky gullies to purpose-built technical trails. For social rides we provide options to cater for length of ride, fitness levels and technical difficulty.

Women’s social rides are held on the 4th Sunday of the month and includes: all women* (both cis and trans), non-binary, gender non confirming people, LGBTQI+, people of colour, and ages.  These rides focus on creating a supportive, inclusive and encouraging environment, connecting with other women and spending time in our beautiful local surrounds. 

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.
