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. They are also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people.
Due to the outstanding weather we have been having lately, this ride will be weather dependant. Keep an eye on our social media post for updates by 2:00pm on the day of the ride.
This Sat 19th Mar ’22 the social ride will be an EASY ride at the Old Pine Forest, Howard Springs. In preparation for the Old Pine Forest 2 Hour event we will ride a couple of laps of the race course. The 2hr race is a fun event and suitable for all riders.
