From March to September 2018 we will conduct monthly practice rides. These will increase in length and/or difficulty as we get closer to the event in October.
A key ride is the Kep Track between Mundaring and Northam. This year there will be two options. See flyer below for full details.
- Two days – ride to Northam on Saturday, stay overnight in Northam, ride back on Sunday. Crew and trailer will follow. Sweep rider at back. Luggage transported for you.
- One day – bus to Northam and ride back to Mundaring. Ride at your own pace, option to stop at Bakers Hill Pie Shop for lunch. Bus and trailer will follow. Sweep rider at the back. Check in at the end.
If you are keen for further practice, why not try Mountain Bike Orienteering. Look out for our Green group front escort drivers Jack and Sue when you get there. Check this link for details and upcoming events.
