Dust off your mountain bike... or rent one for the evening. This is going to be a fun introduction to mountain biking. There are a great range of tracks up and around Mt Vic and a great place to get used to being off-road.
This isn't a formal training session - more of a cruisey ride to get used to the tracks. But your host will be able to give you some basic hints and tips about riding style, breaking and using gears. Just ask if you want some assistance!
This event is weather dependent as the tracks can get very greasy when its too wet! If the weather isn't looking good we will confirm cancellation by lunchtime on the day of the ride - otherwise assume the ride is on!
- Lights - if its getting dark you might need lights to get back from the ride on the road!
If you need to rent a bike - go to xBase backpackers on Cambridge Terrace - opposite the Embassy Theatre and up the road a wee bit. This should cost you $25 and the bikes are in quite good condition!
Go to the bike shop at 5.30pm to sort yourself out with a bike and then meet us at the Embassy at 5.45pm.
We will be biking for up to 2 hours - and obviously there are hills or it wouldn't be mountain biking... so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
