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 1st Jun ’19, there will be an urban ride in and around Darwin CBD. We will start the ride from Stokes Hill Wharf 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. This ride takes us through some of Darwin’s park areas, the Esplanade and out to Cullen Bay, Mindal beach and the Botanical gardens before returning to the wharf. During the ride will we find some drops, small down hill sections and stairs to ride. You can participate in riding these features or come along and have look.
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.
For insurance purposes, you will need proof of membership with DORC/MTBA or be prepared to sign a waiver.
