Weekend Social Rides/Race Course Preview

Every Saturday afternoon DORC host a social mountain bike ride in different locations around the Darwin area. The aim of these rides is to get all level 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.

This Saturday 9th March 19, the ride will be hosted at the Old Pine Forest, Howard Springs. We will start the ride from the Across the road from Howard Springs Rd, Stow Rd intersect at 4:45 for a 5:00 pm start.

The ride will be at an easy pace and go for approx 1.5 hrs with plenty of breaks along the way.
