The 55km* route is for more technically advanced mountain bikers, and will present an exhilarating route that includes hand cut single track, purpose built bridges, water crossings and steep traverses on some virgin land. Riders will need to qualify to participate in the 55km*, to ensure safety on route, as well as a superior trail experience.

The 25km* route is not overly technical and offers ample fun for the new to fairly seasoned weekend warrior with single track, jeep track, and some interesting urban obstacles to peak your interest on the fat tyres. 

The 10km route on Saturday 11 November is a great introduction to trails for beginners and a bit more of a challenge than the Kiddies Ride for older or more eager kids. It’s a great opportunity for the whole family to get out on their bikes together.

You’ve got no excuse not to get out there!

Remember the adventure with commemorative gear. Our merchandise store offers a range of items both for on-the-day and showing off afterwards.
