With the cold creeping in and race numbers dwindling we're going back to social rides of a Tuesday Night. These are a great chance to get out and experience some of the other great trail we have in our area and sometimes further afield.

First stop. The Bathurst bike park.

Those who haven't ridden it, you don't know what you are missing. Fun trails, big berms and interesting obstacles.

The Bathurst crew did a great job getting the trail ready and virtually cathead free for the Evo-cities so now is the perfect time to ride it

We need to build some bridges (board walk really) across some bits that can get boggy.

If there's extra people we'll find some digging to do. You can stay and have a ride afterwards too. Let us know if you're thinking of coming so we get an idea of numbers (if you don't let us know then you can still turn up).

Access for the site is through the scout camp, please drive very slowly and be considerate through here.

Big thanks to Leo for all the expertise and design.
