Snail Trails 3rd Anniversary (sort of) ride - Woodford Sun 24 March

Hey all, well it's about time I got off my can and organised the yearly bash through Glasshouse.

SNAIL TRAILS 3rd 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: Woodford, CJ's Bakery, main street between IGA and hardware.
WHEN: 8 am meet for 8.45 ride out. Ride briefing at 8.30.
SUNDAY MARCH 24

ROUTE: From Woodford we will head into Glasshouse SF, making our way on easy dirt roads to Matthew Flinders rest area on Steve Irwin way for a rest stop and bull session (around 9.30 - 10 am). From there we will head up to the Glasshouse mountains lookout for... yep, you guessed it, another rest stop and bull session. After that, we will make our way back to Woodford CJ's bakery for a pie and.... well.... you know.
Finished riding by about 2pm I'd say. Total klms, probably about 80 maximum. There is no fuel available in Woodford. Nearest fuel is D'aguilar, 5 klms East of Woodford.

Ride will suit small to medium bikes (up to KLR size), or larger ships with experienced riders.

Here's the video from last year's ride, lets hope conditions are as mint as they were then!



ALSO LOOKING FOR 2 SWEEPS AND MID PACK HELPERS

Same Andy, been a while indeed. Though I need to get out and focus on my skills a bit more. Tend to lose those on the bigger rides. Anyways you need someone to keep Spanky in check

True, he's a bit of a handful, especially when he's got a handful!
