Tuesday and Thursday Charles Darwin Rides.

Lets get these happening again. See you all there 8/9/2015

Where: Start at the new trail head sign just inside the main gates.
When: Most Tuesdays & Thursdays. (Ride Starts at 5:45PM Sharp).
How Hard: Training – easy or as hard as you like.
What You Need To Know:  ”Most Tuesdays and Thursdays” means that someone is usually riding. Usually not as many people riding from around mid December to February due to the wet weather.

Tuesday rides are especially for beginners, avoiding the trickier trails and provide plenty of stops for catching up. Thursdays for intermediate riders and may go to some of the more technical sections of track.

Charles Darwin National is situated next to a mangrove tidal wetland. There’s usually biting insects at dusk.

Whilst the rides don’t go into the night, you may want to bring lights for the ride home.

First off thanks to all involved who helped out at the event. Secondly apologies for the results. All timing had to be done manually. Number and time recorded at which you went past the time keepers. Lap times have not been worked out but the times are all consistent and in order. There may be a few mistakes in there but again it was all done manually. Click the link below. Hats off to the time keepers for their effort on this one!

Humpty Doooooo Social Ride. Sunday 5th July

Geoff Fox will be leading a ride around his track network on Sunday afternoon. Ride will depart from 260 Trippe Road, Humpty Doo at 3pm. Ride distance is around 35km of intermediate tracks and should take around 3 hrs. Geoff will have an esky with ice if you want to BYO some cold bevies for the post ride chin wag. Guaranteed to be the best beer you’ll have all weekend.

Please ensure you have water, snacks, spares and a helmet. If you have any questions, post them to the DORC Facebook page. If your not already a DORC member, sign up before the ride and get $5000 of insurance (you might need it).

See you Sunday!
