The 6 Odd Foots of Grunts Ride Part 2
It was around 10 years ago that we rode the 6ft track as a group and since Drift Bikes recently turned 10 and Robbie’s turning some age that he would rather not think about we are going to relive the glory, only this time we plan on going a little bigger and deeper into the wildnerness than before.
We plan on meeting at the Gardeners Inn @ 255 Great Western Hwy, Blackheath at 8:30am on Saturday the 10th
of August. The ride leaves at 9am sharp and will head down into the Megalong valley and onto the 6 foot track and finally across to Jenolan Caves where we will stay the night.
It is up to all riders to book their own accommodation for the Saturday night and the link to all available accommodation can be found here
. Your best bet is to call the house to discuss accommodation options.
We will have a Van taking everyone’s clothes for the evening and next day. Please have your night bag packed and ready to throw in the van at Blackheath.
On Sunday we will be heading back the same way we came to finish back at the Gardeners Inn, Blackheath around 3pm.
We couldn’t class this ride as a beginners ride but it will be social. The ride will cover 100km in total over the two days and will have a significant amount of climbing.
There is a $20 fee to register for the ride which can be paid in store.
To insure that things go smoothly we are asking all riders to book their bike in for a complimentary safety assessment between Monday the 29th
of July and Monday the 5th
of August. This will allow us to uncover any potential disasters and give everyone the best possible chance of having them repaired for a trouble free ride.
Requirements for the ride are as follows:
$20 registration Fee
Safety Assesment within given timeframe with all necessary repairs being completed at riders expense
Riders must carry – Joining link, pump, 2 x spare tube, tyre boot, derailleur hanger, minimum 2L of water and food as required.
Lastly, maximum number of riders is 20 so be quick!
