O'Week - Come and Try - Mountain Biking

Trip type: 
Start date: 
Saturday, 17 February 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Are you new to Canberra and want to know where the best (and closest) trails are? Or maybe you've decided that you're going to give Mountain Biking a go in 2018.
Either way, come along to our Come and Try Session.

We'll meet outside the SRA at 10 am and we'll go for a short ride on bike paths to get to Bruce Ridge. Once there we will go over some basic skills before heading out on a loop of the trails and then head back to ANU for the BBQ.

You will need to bring:

- A working Mountain Bike with front suspension
- A Helmet
- Gloves (if you have them)
- Comfortable clothes and shoes
- Spare tubes, puncture repair kit and pump (if you have them)
- Water

Intended plan: 
Starting in front of the SRA at 10 am, follow bike paths to Bruce ridge, go over some basic skills and etiquette before doing a loop of Bruce ridge. Exact route determined by skill level of the group, but it will more than likely be the Rossii Loop - http://actgov.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=419fcde61c3f450ba0aa063176f2998b#
