Herbicide and water for spraying will be supplied along with a limited number of spray packs, If you own a spray pack bring that along with you. What you will need to bring -long clothing, drinking water, insect repellant . Finished up by 530 pm. If you have the time free please consider helping out.
Wednesday’s ride will start from the Hidden Valley Tavern carpark. Meet at 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start. We’ll head down Berrimah road (unless someone has a more MTB friendly option) to Berrimah Hills. We’ll cut some laps around the hills before heading back to the Hidden Valley Tavern for a couple of coldies.
This ride will be on the easy side of things, so if you’ve been wondering about giving night riding a go, Berrimah Hills is a good place to start. Charge up those lights and get out and ride. See you Wednesday.
