Plenty Gorge MTB conducts regular social rides throughout the Plenty Gorge Park. For the most up to date info check our Facebook page.
On Tuesday nights:
We currently run 2 Tuesday night rides for all riders.
Starting on the South side near Queens Gardens as usual from 6:30 until about 9. Expect a friendly 20km. Lights essential. We may split into 2 groups to suit rider skill levels dependent on numbers.
All riders must be MTBA affiliated due to insurance. You can sign up for a free 2 month membership here: http://www.mtba.asn.au/join/
Winter: 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 above 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!
Summer: The beginners ride runs from the water tank on Goldsworthy Lane, off Memorial Drive, Plenty.
Starting from the tank small loops will run returning to the tank before the next to allow riders of all fitness to choose their ride length. The trails are accessible to riders of all abilities and a competent senior club member will run the ride at a pace to ensure nobody is left behind. Lights essential for the full ride but not required for the short one. Please See ride leader prior to Start if you’re unsure about what type of lights to use.
Every third Sunday of the month
Hosted on a Sunday from the Yellow Gum Picnic area two rides will be available to cater to riders of all abilities. Rides start at 10 a.m and will run between 1 and a half hours up to 3 hours depending on ability and demand. Check the club Facebook page for more event details. Please arrive about 10min early to ensure we’re ready to go by 10.
Throughout the warmer months we will also run a BBQ after the ride for some much needed nourishment.
Parking, toilets and water all available at Yellow Gum Park.
