Weekend Social Rides

Saturday Afternoon Social Ride

Every Saturday afternoon DORC host a social mountain bike ride in different locations around the Darwin area. The aim is to bring all levels of riders together to enjoy our sport and trails in a friendly supportive environment. These rides can help familiarise you with our local trail networks and to help you meet other like-minded people.

DORC haven’t had an urban ride for some time now. So it is probably long overdue.

This Saturday 2nd March 2019 we will meet out on Stokes Hill Wharf at the usual time of 4:45 for a 5:00pm start. We will ride along the waterfront and then up into the city and surounding parks.

This ride will be approx 1.5 to 2 hours in duration. It will be at a very casual pace. It is suitable for riders of all skill levels. We move around to several diffrent locations in the cbd with urban features that you can choose to ride or watch others ride.

We will end back at Stokes Hill Wharf with food and drinks afterwards.

You will need a bike in good working order, helmet, gloves, enclosed footware, plenty of water and any spares that you think you may require.

You do not need to be a DORC/MTBA member; However, for insurance purposes, you will need proof of membership with DORC/MTBA or be prepared to sign a waiver.
