Beginner MTB Ride 19th Oct Brooklyn Turbine (the delayed return)

****** Please RSVP if you are planning to join us ********

We are a social riding group. Saturday rides are suitable for beginner-level riders with mountain bikes and suitable off road tyres.  You will need to ensure you have the right equipment for the ride, a first aid kit, water and basic tools, if you have any questions or concerns please email me in advance of the ride.

Dear Social Bikers

Since it was too wet to do this ride on the 12th we are returning to Brooklyn for this ride a week late.  The tracks we will be doing are near the Brooklyn Turbine and are named Rollercoaster and Highbury Fling!  These are really fun narrow tracks so if you have not ridden with me before and you have limited experience of single tracks or you do not have good knobbly tyres then please email me to discuss.  As usual we meet at 9.30 am.

Saturday Ride Details: This is a super fun ride and will offer some downhill riding practice for you beginners.  But remember there is no problem in going slow or walking – we all stick together so this is a good track to learn some new skills.  Initially we have a short hard uphill on the road towards the Turbine (we do not go as far as the Turbine) and then we join onto the track by Zealandia and then onto Rollercoaster.  We meet on the side of the road on Ashton Fitchett Drive, just before the turning onto the access road for the Turbine.  Turn onto Aston Fitchett and just after the first left hand bend park on the road – we meet on grass area on right side.  Follow signs for the Turbine from the Brooklyn Lights.   Text me or call me[masked] if you get lost.

Please feel free to pass on this MeetUp to anyone else that might be interested in social riding for beginner level MTB.  Remember to RSVP to me so I know numbers on the day.

Kind regards

    It was awesome! I did manage to smash into a tree on the way down and buckle my front wheel though. As well as Darryl getting a flat tyre, you guys missed the most eventful part haha
