Ride duration is roughtly 2 hours and rated intermediate (some of the Pumphouse Track may require walking).

Family Social Ride Howard Springs, Sunday 27th July

This Sunday DORC will be hosting a family social ride at the Howard Springs trails. The ride is open to all ages and levels. The only requirement is that riders must not be still on training wheels. Of course you will need a suitable bike, water and helmet.

The Howard Springs trails are a great place to introduce yourself to the fantastic sport of mountainbiking, as they are flat, easy to navigate and offer easy lines around obstacles. Alternatively, you could give some of the harder obstacles a go with advice and encouragement from your fellow mountainbikers.

So get out those bikes, bring the kids or the better half and enjoy an afternoon of mountainbiking with like minded souls. Ride will start at 4.00pm, and finish no later than 5.00pm. Meet at the trail entrance on Howard Springs Road at 3.45pm. Entrance is located on the right just before the Howard Springs Nature reserve turn off.

If you have any question please contact Dave on 0477434647.
