Each type is a unique experience with different types of bike required, levels of skill, time, and scenery. You'll see event announcements begin with the type so you can filter by your interests.

Requires a mountain bike and maybe protective gear.

ROAD
On-road, typically longer distance between 30-100km with pace 20-30km/hr. Suitable for road bikes. Requires stamina and fitness.

SOCIAL
Low-key, low-intensity, high fun. Any bike will do (unless stated otherwise - so check the event description).

URBAN
City rides with mixed on-and off-road. Suitable for mountain bikes and urban/commuter/hybrid bikes. May or may not be suitable for road bikes (refer to individual event descriptions for clarification).

[MTB - Intermediate] Saturday Afternoon Woodhill Ride (approx. 25kms)

Woodhill Mountain Bike Park

Intermediate MTB ride at Woodhill on Saturday afternoon. Maybe the trails will be less busy? And Beer at The Beerspot afterwards for those who are interested. In the unlikely event that none of the hosts can make it then a ride may be cancelled up to a few days before. SKILL LEVEL This is a blend of Intermediate and maybe some Advanced riding. TRAILS Mix of grade 3 and 4. FITNESS We won’t be treating these as uphill races, the ride is more focused on the ride downhill so your uphill climbing speed is not critical though you must be fit enough to climb judgement call at least 2 times. ACG operates a no drop policy which means we regroup at trail heads and trail ends to ensure everyone is safe and accounted for. We will be out there for a few hours but it will be at a comfortable pace and will regroup for each other at junctions and top of hills. ----------------- MEETING POINT Arrive and meet up at the BBQ tables in front of the main Woodhill MTB Park shop by or prior to 2:05pm so everyone can have time to purchase park passes and get their equipment ready to ride by 2:15pm. Arriving early means you won't be left behind - you can always grab a coffee and responsibly socialise using physical distancing with the other riders while we wait for the 2:15pm start time. Casual pass $15 or you can buy 6 or 10 month passes. *PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING CONTRACT TRACING INFO* All visitors will be required to sign in on arrival to ensure we are contact tracing. Woodhill have QR codes and Txt In options to make it easy and simple. Please stop at the riders gate to show your confirmation. Woodhill have an iPad (and sanitizer) for those without mobile access. ****************************************************************
