Riverhead Evening Ride Mtb Trails

Wednesday February 24 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 3 weeks that begins at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, repeating until February 24, 2021

Free

These Riverhead rides are on unmaintained rough singletrack NOT on the gravel roads and will alternate on Wednesdays between the STRIP RD carpark, the FORESTRY RD carpark and the ROBINSON RD carpark so please take note of the location and also note that this is not the WCRC Compound so please don’t wait at that location.

These rides are not for beginners but for intermediate and above riders who have some mountain bike experience and want to step up from riding at Woodhill. No drop policy and will wait at junctions to re group.

Arrive by 5:15pm hit the trails at 5.30pm ride for approx 2 hours – no set tracks decided on, we will make a selection on the night.
*NOTE* There are no change or toilet facilities at any of these locations.

LOCATION: Riverhead Forest – Forestry Rd carpark, near Riverhead.

DIRECTIONS: Turn right on to Old North Rd from State Highway 16 at the big roundabout and after 2km at the next roundabout turn right onto Riverhead Rd, then after 1km left on to Deacon Rd. At the bottom of the dip turn right on to Forestry Rd and drive to the end of the road and park near the gate.

Here’s a Google maps link to the location: https://goo.gl/maps/5MeTV9JUgZnvUALi6

IMPORTANT: If there has been sustain rain in the 2-3 days leading up to a riding date then I may decide to cancel a specific ride due to the trail composition being clay based. When water logged the trails become to greasy to ride – ensure you check the comments section in the days leading up to the event to see if the ride is going ahead.

If anyone wants to carpool I suggest you mention it in the comments on Meetups and see who can help out.

Hope to see you out there – let me know by txt to the below number if you are going to be late.
