LDTR Women's Lysterfield Social Rides
Saturday 26th August - Sign up at https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=3999
*** AUGUST SPECIAL EVENT! *** Join us at 8.15am as we teach how to do a simple bike safety check before the social ride. You should check your bike over EVERY time you ride, so learn a quick effective method to help keep it working safely. If time permits we’ll teach how to change a puncture, because its so much cooler to change your flat tyre trailside than to do the walk of shame back to the car.
Join us for a relaxed social ride on Lysterfield's beautiful mountain bike trails, amongst forest covered hills and countless kangaroos. We ride in 2 groups, so regardless of your ability and fitness, this is the ride for you. You'll meet like-minded women (18+), your kids will think you're cool, your co-workers will marvel at your weekend plans and best of all you'll have fun.
Are you new to the sport? Wanting to get back into it after a few years away? Guys, are you looking to get your partner into mountain biking? The BEGINNERS group may be right for you, whether you’ve never ridden a mountain bike before, or you’re hooked on wide dirt trails but don’t have the confidence to consistently ride narrower trails with roots and tighter corners. You’ll gain the confidence and strength to take your mountain biking to the next level.
Are you loving Lysterfield’s blue rated singletrack but are itching for a social adventure? Sign up with the INTERMEDIATE group. This is suitable for riders comfortable on a variety of singletrack which might include mud, loose rocks, narrow trails tightly lined with trees and small obstacles. There will be some hills to go up, so bring your gears and a moderate level of fitness to handle approximately 400m of climbing. Our rides are fun and non-competitive while providing an opportunity for you try new challenges, obstacles, and trails to help you grow as a mountain biker.
