New Pine Forest
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.
During the wet season, these social rides will be weather dependant. Keep an eye on our social media pages for updates. If a ride is going to be cancelled notification will go out prior to 3pm on the day of the ride.
This Saturday 7th May 2022 our social ride will be at the New Pine Forest, Howard Springs. The meeting point for this ride will be at the entrance to the Old Shed site on Howard Springs Rd. Travel past the Howard Springs Rd/Stow Rd intersection approx 2km on the right hand side of Howard Springs Rd. Please arrive at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm start.
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.
Post ride rehydration is a byo affair and we encourage riders to get together after the ride.
