[MTB] Real Adventure Trail ride - join in the mystery

Location visible to members

1. Does the idea of the unknown excite you?
2. Do you like the feel of being a maverick on a journey?
3. Are you sick of the "same old" challenges each weekend and just looking for something a little bit different to break out of the norm?
4. Are you intrigued by the prospect of riding bike trails others might not agree follow contemporary expectations?

If you answered YES then these rides might be for you!

These mystery rides are for capable riders who like to ride old school trails that aren’t seriously groomed or sculptured to within an inch of their flow riding lives.

This is real riding where you need to make your flow happen with your skill because the trails don't just give it to you because you point the bike downhill.

If you love a challenge then join us for some fun exhilarating times.

WHO'S IT FOR
Riders who like a bit of off camber trail, who enjoy tight twisty technical terrain with obstacles to conquer and don’t mind exerting a bit of energy, or getting dirty (some mud is possible), or really using their brains when riding.

Don’t expect massive sustained gravity descents, but do be ready to see your up and down riding skills tested at every turn in the variable terrain that’s going to be on offer - plus expect your handling skills to grow exponentially as a result.

THE TRAILS
The trails we’ll ride may or may not be ridden on a lot these days for a variety of reasons.... which means they could be a little overgrown in places, but they are definitely bike orientated trails that are intended to put your MTB riding skills to the test - and are guaranteed to deliver fun exciting satisfying times.

I promise there is nothing truly scary, just worthy challenges.

WHAT BIKES
Only suitable for proper knobbly mountain bikes (no hybrids, or road bikes)

AND YOU
Must be confident riding variable terrain, and think every obstacle is simply there for you to conquer.

WHERE
Located in and around the north shore region - exact riding/meeting locations will be provided to RSVP’d riders the evening prior on a need to know basis to maintain the required air of mystery.

What happens on tour stays on tour, but feel free to tell your friends too join us if they dare.

[MTB] WOODHILL SOCIAL SUNDAY RIDE

Woodhill Mountain Bike Park

This a social ride. It is perfect if you have just done Rick’s course and want to work on those skill. It is also suitable for beginners, building up your fitness/confidence or if you just want a social ride.We will warm up on the Family Loop and then head up the hill to split into groups depending on ability and inclination. The pace ranges from quite slow to nearly intermediate and the ride atmosphere is relaxed and everyone is welcome.

The ride can be between 1 and 2 hours long, with turn around points if you decide you’ve had enough.

Entry to Woodhill is $15 or less with a season pass.

Look forward to riding with you.
