Ride Database Entry:

Meeting Point: 

Rydal Showground. Top of Market St

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

remember the mini DH races we had in the pine forest? No
Well they were a lot of fun and we are bringing the format back.

Short easier trails that make a good introduction to Downhill racing on less intimidating trails.

There is no transport so push runs only but it's a short trail and entry will be $5 or $25 if you are staying for the dinner.

Unfortunitely I can't make this one so it will be a ride day only. No timing

For this one we hang around and have a Christmas dinner, do the yearly prize draw and generally celebrate the year.

Most of These will take place along side our 3hr series which should brig both sides of the club back together but that means I will need help with timing and marshalling

Meeting Point: 

Rydal ShowGround

From the highway come into Rydal, cross the train tracks and take a left before the Pub (Showground signposted.)

OK Back in the day... well, just 4 years ago really, we use to run mini DH of a Tuesday afternoon before XC and I've been wanting to start that back up as it got both sides of the the club together for a bit of fun as well as offering a bit more of a regular thing for the DH riders and a good light option for beginners.

Trails like Acid Bomb and Fordy's were modified sections of the XC loop. They weren't that steep or Technical but were a bit of fun.
.

It will be $5 for club members. $10 for non members + day license fees.
