The Sheep Station Fiddy K

People keep asking us what other riding is there at Rydal. And we keep saying heaps. But that doesn't seem to pacify them so we thought why not hook up a loop that takes in the usual XC single track and links it up with some of the other cool stuff out there and then bust out a 50km race.

Thus the Sheep Station Fiddy was born.

More detail to come soonerish

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?
When you rode because it felt good and the company you rode with and the tracks you rode were more important than all the wank that sometimes comes with big races

Well CTMBC are taking it back.

We're stripping away all the hype and complications and just having fun but why we're at it let's throw in the much alluded sheep station
