Flea Creek Bike Packing

Trip type: 
Mountain-biking
Difficulty: 
Hard
Start date: 
Wednesday, 20 January 2021 - 11:00am to Thursday, 21 January 2021 - 4:00am

The plan is to do an overnighter down at flea creek leaving late morning on Wednesday the 20th.

The trip will involve quite a high degree of fitness as we will be doing 120km over 2 days with 1200m of vertical gain each day. However, it is all on firetrail and won't require serious technical skills.

There is room for another 4 people . If you wish to attend, you'll need to prove that you have sufficient fitness to undertake this trip. We will be doing a ride on Monday night as a pre trip meeting. if you wish to come, I strongly recommend you attend this ride.

Please contact Ira Dudley-Bestow: 0490252578 or Pandanus west: 0468827900 to attend. 

Bikepacking gear can be hired from the gear store. Pre-trip will be held outside Parsa Cycles at 5:45pm on Monday and wil roll on to the gear store at 6. 

Pretrip Meeting Details

Pretrip location: 
PARSA bikeshop
Costs:

Intended plan: 
The plan is to head toward Flea Creek from ANU taking the bikepath out to Stromlo, then riding up Brindabella road until we reach Piccadilly Circus. We'll continue along Brindabella Road then turn right down Gentle Annie road which in NOT gentle in any way shape or form. The gradient will exceed 30% in places, but the road is smooth and non-technical. The next day we will have to push our bikes back up Gentle Annie (this will take a long time) then ride home.
Departure and intended return times: 
departing at 11AM on Wednesday, returning probably late on Thursday.
Local knowledge: 
Both Myself and Ebony Tanzen have ridden the route once previously.
Unlimited slots left.
