Old Pine Forest Social Ride/Race Course 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 Sat 25th March ’23 DORC will be hosting a social ride and race course preview on the trails at the Old Pine Forest, Howard Springs. So come on down and join us for a lap of the Darwin Family Law No Cash Dash course preview. We will do one lap in the normal direction then a second lap in the opposite direction just to mix it up a bit. The meeting point for this ride will be at the entry to the Old Pine Forest on Howard Springs Road. Please arrive at 4:45pm for a 5:00pm start.

It’s that time of year again and there could be showers or storms around on the day of the ride, if so please watch this post for cancellation details. We will make a decision no later than 4pm.
If you would like to catch up after the ride, refreshments in the carpark will be BYO.
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.
