  1. I am a member of dorc and was going to share this link, but I dont know if bikes are supplied or if you have to bring your own (kind of defeats the purpose of trying out mountain biking if you have a bike).
    Same goes for helmets, who has a hemet without a bike (unless they borrow one)
    A bit more information would be helpful

  2. Sorry Anthony, DORC don’t have the resources to supply bikes and helmets.
    Come and try days are generally aimed at those with a bike and helmet but just never had an opportunity to or know where to ride off road.
    I hope that clarifies things for you.
    Thanks
    Paul

  3. Hi Anthony,

    If you are without bike or helmet but wish to take part in a DORC event, there are several bike stores in Darwin and Palmerston who support DORC and often have demo bikes available to try and buy. Don’t let not having a bike stop you and your friends coming down to have a look and enjoy our DORC events.
