QLD Snail Trails 5th Anniversary social ride - Mt Mee Sunday June 7

NOTE: CHANGE OF VENUE.

NOW STARTING AT DAYBORO BAKERY FOR MT. MEE RIDE.

SAME MEET TIME.

Well, it's time again for the anniversary ride. Sandy pointed out to me that it was actually 6 years ago that Hardhead, Mickd and I ran the very first Snail Trails ride, this being the 5th anniversary of that ride.

Wow. Time flies, and I reckon we've all seen some big changes since then...

If you're interested, here is a link to the ride report from last year's ride. A top day out:

And the vid from the previous year:







SNAIL TRAILS 5th ANNIVERSARY - INTRODUCTION TO DIRT RIDING / SOCIAL RIDE DAY

I'm taking some beginner riders for a ride, so if anyone else would like to come along, you are welcome.
This will be a beginner friendly ride over gravel and dirt roads, open forest trails and easy grade single trails.
I encourage all those riders who have been a bit gun shy of group rides, to get your name down and come enjoy an easy relaxed ride in very good company.
As with all Snail Trails rides, every rider should ride at a pace that they feel comfortable with, and if you are uncomfortable with any obstacle, there will be helpers on hand to assist you through, explain the skills needed or ride your bike through for you.


This ride will be weather dependent, and may be postponed to a later date if track conditions are not suitable for beginners.

MEET: Dayboro bakery, William St Dayboro
WHEN: 8.30 am meet for 9.15 ride out. Ride briefing at 9am.
SUNDAY JUNE 7th.




ROUTE: From Dayboro, head up Laceys Creek Rd to the Gantry day use area. Then some more easy dirt roads to the lookout etc, then return to Dayboro via Chambers Rd.
Finished riding by about 2.30pm I'd say.
Total klms, probably about 60 maximum. Fuel is available in Dayboro.
Ride will suit small to medium bikes (up to KLR size), or larger ships with moderately confident riders.
NOTE: THIS IS A BEGINNERS RIDE - ANY ROOSTING OR UNSAFE PASSING WILL BE UNWELCOME, AND OUR SWEEP RIDER WILL BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF YOU

Before coming on any Snail Trails ride you must read and agree to the disclaimer here. These are informal social rides with no central organiser or any person taking responsibility for others, and you come on these rides at your risk. No back up vehicles so you'll need to arrange your own bike collection if there's a breakdown that can't be fixed.

Yeah geez.
Relaxing in an island paradise or breathing in dust and exhaust fumes while blinking grit from your eyes.
Mmmm... tough choice...
I see your point

Tragic isn't it.

Welcome everyone.

Hi all, I'm new to this forum, so here is a good noob question. What do I need to do to come along on this ride, do I need to sign up anywhere or just show up on the day? Cheers

Welcome Bradventuredude.
As the other Brad said, a gidday message is enough to get you on the ride. The rest is up to you.

All bikes MUST be registered and all riders licensed (or learner accompanied by a licensed rider).
And apart from a relaxed attitude that's all we ask.
And welcome to the forum too

Thanks for the welcome guys. I would say it's a 90% chance I'll be there, going to see if my young bloke wants to come along too, he's 25. Might have to sook out though and trailer the bikes down from the hill, much warmer in the car that time of the morning in winter.

Goodo Strummer keep up the good work.

Now i have had the klr 650 for about 6 weeks i am getting into the ADV riding (2700ks so far). not giving up the hard dirt stuff (on the Husky wr300 yesterday) just yet but the allure of the country road has got me.

i took my son (13years) for a 4 hour ride today on a mix of dirt and bitumen and looking forward to him getting a bike learners in 2.5years.

Anyway have a good ride but classic dirt conondale is on that weekend so will be takin the rm250 for a spin.
