Lapping It Up at Randwick

This is a ‘Novice Friendly with a Twist’ opportunity for those who want to expierence the slightly rougher side of mountain biking. There will be roots, twisty single track and no doubt a bit of mud.

Gary Palmer will be leading, at what he guarantees will be a ‘proper steady pace’, Gary will stop at each obstacle, answer any questions, and allow riders to repeat the obstacle until comfortable with it and have loads of fun

The laps are about 4 miles, so there can be as many or as few laps as people like and, for the braver few, there are some bomb holes to play on.

There is no cafe nearby and the ice-cream man is unlikely to be in the car park!
