THE TRACK

The 40 km ride will begin with a 20km undulating loop through a quiet part of Stromlo Forrest, before crossing Cotter Road and heading along the Bicentennial trail for a 20km out and back. The ride will be a mix of hard forrest roads and grassy tracks. The course is consistently undulating but there are no major climbs.

 

The 20km ride will follow the undulating loop through Stromlo Forrest. It will be a peaceful loop with no major hills or other obstacles.

 

On both rides, horses may see bike riders, walkers/runners.  The ground is fairly hard underfoot, boots are recommonded for barefoot horses. 

 

If you are new to endurance please see the New To Endurance section on the NSWERA website and download the new riders booklet to ensure you are well prepared.

 

All entrants are welcome to camp Saturday night, the ride base will close at 12pm Sunday. We hope to have catering available Saturday during the day. For dinner there are many options just a 10 minute drive away at Weston Creek.

 

Saturday only 20km and 40km.

If you need to withdraw in the week before the ride we will keep $25 from your entry fee - this reflects the hard and non refundable costs spent on rider resources before the event (i.e, toilet fees, venue fees and prizes).
