The Plenty Gorge MTB club will be guiding a social ride through the Smiths Gully area on Sunday 28th May.
Depending on the group, we’ll ride 20-30+km. Good fitness is required out here. The climbs are longer and tighter compared to Plenty Gorge, but there’s good decending too. Expect hills.
Unlike our social rides at Plenty Gorge Park, we’ll be riding together as a single group. No drop, all welcome!
Please bring enough water for yourself based on the weather conditions and ride details below. We recommend 2 litres.
Please be self-sufficient, bring tools, phone, tubes, first aid, sunscreen, food/gels and any other personal requirements (e.g. medication) for yourself and ensure your MTB is in good working order.
Time: Meet at 8:45am for a 9:00am start.
Location: Smiths Gully General Store
Total distance: ~20-30+km
Elevation gain: ~500-900vm
Elapsed time: Depends on group pace and resting time. Expect up to 3.5 hours.
Ratings: We would rate this as an ‘intermediate’ ride. Good fitness and expect longish climbing
Due to the holidays our regular Sunday Spin will be postponed by one week.
It will no longer run on the third Sunday but now rather the fourth.
You can catch us on Sunday the 23rd of April at Yellow Gum Carpark
While not directly impacting the majority of PGMTB trails it does affect the park. There are a number of upcoming information sessions for anyone interested in how the Mernda Rail Extension will affect the north of the park.
Daylight savings will be stopping on April 2nd. This means that rides from Tuesday April 4th will be conducted entirely after dark.
Due to low numbers last year we will be starting the beginners ride from the southern starting point off Queens Gardens (see attached image).
If we have numbers we WILL still be running the beginners ride, but the combined starting location will allow us to combine rides if numbers are too low.
We hope to keep riding with you over the winter!
Our new newsletter should be in members inboxes, if you haven’t received it and believe you should let us know!!

This coming Sunday we will be running our Sunday Spin with a twist. Prizes will be up for grabs.
It’s Christmas time. To celebrate we will have a free jersey for both the best dressed bike/rider and the longest skid competition winner!
We will also be postponing our Tuesday night rides over the Christmas and New Years break. The final ride for the year will be the 20th of December and we will return on the 10th of January.
