Charles Darwin National Park
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 18th Nov 2023 the social ride will be held at Charles Darwin National Park. Our volunteers have done a great job clearing the trails (thanks so much), so come join us as we hit the trails in the park. For this ride, we will be meeting just inside the main gates of Charles Darwin National Park. Please arrive at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm start.
It’s that time of year again and we could get a storm on the day of the ride. if so please watch this post for cancellation, a decision will be made no later than 4pm on the day.
It is the responsibility of the rider to ensure that they have a current Auscycling Licence, this is to make sure we follow the Auscycling club and insurance requirements. If you are a non member and would like to join us just follow the link and take advantage of the AusCycling four week free trial membership ( click here. ) or you can sign a recreational day waiver. *ATTENTION ALL: We now can offer all non members the chance to sign a Recreational Day Waiver to join us on our social rides. Please see the ride leader for the waiver to sign or if you have any questions.
Please adhere to social distancing guide lines. If you are feeling unwell or displaying symptoms please stay home.
