International Women’s Day Social Ride
IWD 2021 campaign theme: #ChooseToChallenge
“A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge”. International Women’s Day 2021
International Women’s Day is on the 8th March 2021. To celebrate this day, DORC will be holding a women’s social ride at the Howard Springs Pine Forest. All women are welcome to come along and enjoy a relaxed and easy-paced meander through the trees. What nicer way to spend a few hours on a Sunday morning?
The meeting point for this ride will be at the old shed carpark on Howard Springs Rd on the right hand side at the bottom of the hill just before you go around the corner, almost opposite the the Howard Springs Reserve entry. Please arrive at 8:15am for an 8:30am start.
As part of our COVID-19 plan we are required to collect names and phone numbers of everyone participating in our events. These will be used for contact tracing in the unlikely event that an outbreak does occur. We also encourage everyone to download and install the COVID Safe app.

The ride will be at an easy pace and will be approx 1.5 hours in duration. There will be plenty of breaks along the way to regroup.
You will need a mtb in good working order, an Aust Standards helmet, enclosed footwear, gloves and plenty of water. Riders please be self-sufficient with water, spare tube, pump and tyre levers, etc.
You do not need to be a DORC/MTBA member to participate in these rides. However, for insurance purposes, you will need proof of membership with DORC/MTBA or be prepared to sign a waiver.
It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure that they have a current MTBA Licence, take advantage of the MTBA 2 month free trial by the link below, this is to make sure we follow the MTBA club and insurance requirements.
All we ask is for new riders to sign up for a free 2 month free trial MTBA membership. It only takes 30 seconds to sign up.
If you do not take advantage of any of the options above you must understand that you are not covered by the MTBA Insurance policy for public liability or personal accident cover. You engage in this activity at your own risk and you are responsible for any expenses should you be held liable for a negligent act or should you suffer personal injury or property damage.
If you are not a DORC/MTBA member you will be required to sign a waiver before starting the ride.
Please see the ride leader before the start of the ride.
