We are back again to celebrate Kevin's birthday! This is a fun mixed terrain tour of Melbourne's North Eastern burbs. Don't expect a walk in the park - there's a fair whack of climbing. You'll get some exercise, but don't worry - take it easy, bring some snacks and your mates and make it around at your own pace. This all-terrain blast includes gravel, sealed roads, bike paths, a non-technical single track, a grassy paddock, and the odd section of no track.
This is a fun mixed terrain tour of the beautiful Adelaide Hills & inner eastern burbs. Don't expect a walk in the park, but do expect to walk but just a little! The route takes all of Kevin’s birthday party guests the fun way to Mount Lofty from Burnside; from the gentle roll through Waterfall Gully Road to the increasingly steep tracks of Mount Osmond (believe me it’s worth it!) before hanging a left into the super scenic Cleland Conservation Park. Once out of the park, a mixture of roads & groads will get you to the resupply point; aka the carpark (water & amenities plus a few party favours) outside the Cherryville Community Hall.
Curve will put this social ride on Sunday, November 20, 2022. We would love to see you there. Our goal is to get as many people off the couch as possible to explore a slightly more adventurous and fun side of cycling. It doesn't matter how big or small you are, what brand of bike you ride, what you choose to wear, what your chromosomal composition is, etc. - you are welcome, as long as you bring your sense of fun and adventure.
If you're coming along, please be self-sufficient and remember that this is a fun social ride - not a race in any way, shape or form. While some of the Curve squad will be riding, there is no formal organisation - it will just be like you're out riding with your mates - nothing more. Please pay careful attention to the route. If something looks difficult to ride, slow down and walk that section. Ride responsibly and within your limitations.⁠
Please, have the route on your Garmin/GPS Device. If you don’t have a Garmin/GPS Device, ride with someone that does. Take it easy on the shared paths and look for pedestrians, animal life, and other locals. Look for traffic, and look after others riding with you on main roads. Use a bell when possible to alert others to your location.⁠ Make sure you have anything to fix a flat/your bike; we don’t have any support or a vehicle to pick you up.
