Col, Karen and Cameron are hosting the annual ride to the Berry Springs Markets, via the back roads, rail trails and fire trails.
Stop at the markets for a big brekkie and a refuel before returning to the start. This ride covers a total round trip of 60km. (Including 17km dirt each way)
At Berry Springs markets, there’s the usual Coffees, Smoothies, Egg/Bacon Rolls and good market fare.
You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness. There are some stretches of sand, a couple of small rock climbs, a bike carry and the return trip can be hot.
You will also need at least 2 litres of water.
If you like, you can ride there, and have your partner (or a mate), meet you at the markets if you only wish to ride one-way.
|Meeting point||Red Rooster Palmerston|
|Date||Sunday 29 August|
You will need a mtb in good working order, a helmet, enclosed footwear, gloves and plenty of water. Also bring along things you may need to keep you going. For example spare tube, tools, pump, etc.
