Wednesday Night Ride – MTB – Glenrock - Leaves 6 pm from DRIFT BIKES Kotara. This ride is for intermediate to advanced riders of good fitness and can vary in direction from week to week so meeting us at the shop is essential. Throughout the winter months this is a great ride if you are keen to cut your teeth on night riding using lights. During the summer months this the perfect excuse to get out for a ride after school or work when the temperature has dropped a little. Come one, come all!
Saturday Morning Ride – MTB – Glenrock – Hosted by Adam - Meet us at the store carpark at 7:15am. Please note that this ride is recommended for intermediate to advanced skill and fitness levels. Come along and start your weekend well!
Saturday Morning Ride – Road – Maitland - Hosted by Josh – We meet at the Maitland Info Centre at 6:30am. The info centre is located on High St, just off the New England Highway. It is usually an approximate 40km return loop and heads out through some beautiful rolling countryside towards Paterson and back towards Morpeth, then back to Maitland. We average around 30kmph but we will always wait at a few major turn-offs so that no one gets left behind. The ride finishes at Stillwater Cafe in Lorn around 8am. For anyone interested in riding from the Kotara Store, leaving at 5:15am should easily meet you up with the bunch start at the info centre by 6.30am. Hello weekend!
