Lee Point Ride
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.
Our social rides at this time of year will be weather dependant. Riding in the rain can be a lot of fun. However a group of riders in the rain can cause significant damage to the trails. Keep an eye on the DORC social media pages and if there are any changes or cancellations to the ride it will be posted by 4pm on the day of the ride.
This Sat 16th Jan ’21 DOC will be hosting an EASY ride on the trails at Lee Point. The meeting point for this ride will be at the Club Tropical Carpark on Lee Point Rd. Please arrive at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm start.
On completion of the ride we will head back to Club Tropical for some post ride rehydration and a feed.
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.
