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 4th May 19, DORC will host the social ride at the New Pine Forest, Howard Springs. We will start the ride at the intersection of Stow Rd and Howard Springs Rd, Howard Springs. Due to the time it may take, to get around the full course, there is a change to the normal start time. Please be at the meeting place at 3:45pm for a 4:00pm start.
This Saturday we will be doing a course preview for the upcomming race to be held on the 12th May ’19. If you haven’t entered in this event, please click here. The ride will be at an easy pace and will be approx 25klm in distance and we have allowed approx 2.5 hours to cover this distance. There will be plenty of breaks along the way to regroup.
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.
If you wish to have an after ride drink, please byo for this one.
You do not need to be a DORC/MTBA member to participate in these rides. However, for insurance purposes, you will need proof of membership with DORC/MTBA or be prepared to sign a waiver.
