Awesome ride - approx 30 kms with some decent climbs on the return leg. Track drains well even after rain.

It was good to put faces to a few new names. You guys did very well to finish, this was not an easy first group ride. Hopefully we haven't scared you off!

This is the route we covered. As can be seen, there was a little bit of climbing. Eye-wink Click on the View Details link to see more.

Great day, i picked up a few good tips for next time
1. Don't have a late night before a 7am start mountain biking event.
2. Have breakfast before riding 30+ km or at least carry some food on the trails.
3. Get a sense of direction so you don't end up heading off in the wrong direction after detouring to a lookout.
4. Ride quietly on pedestrian paths just in case.
