Charles Darwin 2+2 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. They are also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded people.
This Saturday 10th July ’ 21 the social ride will be at Charles Darwin National Park. For this ride, we will be meeting just inside the main gates of Charles Darwin National Park.
In preparation for the Charles Darwin 2+2 event to held on the 17th and 18th July. We will ride the course that will be used for this event. Charles Darwin 2+2 race is a fun event and suitable for all riders. Further details are on the race details page. Entries are open now.
Please arrive at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm start. Charles Darwin NP is well known for it’s bitting insects, please remember to cover up or use an insect repellant. To warm up for our ride, we will take in a few laps of the pump track then head out onto the trails. The trails that we ride will be dependant on the ability of the riders who attend. We may ride some of the more technical trails in the park. If your ability is not up to riding the features on these trails please walk over them or take the B line, if one is available.
Upon completion of the ride we will head back to the One Mile Brewery for our post ride hydration.
