Loaf to Lagoon | Sunday August 31st
A day to remember, riding between two Newcastle Icons, Mt Sugarloaf and Glenrock lagoon, via some of the best singletrack imaginable - including the MTB meccas of Killingworth, Warners Bay and Glenrock. Cock-eyed optimist, Adam Freeman, will take you on the best trails, while his expert knowledge of local history* should also be a highlight.
This ride will be 70+ kilometres and has a high degree of technical difficulty in sections, as a result it is really aimed at riders with at least an Intermediate level of skill and fitness. Where & When: Sunday the 31st of August, with an aim to finish at The Burwood Colliery Bowling Club at Dudley for a well earned beer and lunch.

The ride will begin in the morning and will go for approximately 4-5 hours. Upon registration exact meeting time and place will be emailed to you.

If your bike has been serviced at DRIFT BIKES within one (1) month of the ride date this check over will not be necessary. If your bike has been serviced by another store, yourself,dad,mate or grandma in this time you are still required to check your bike in for a check over.
*N.B. Due to Drift Bikes wanting to ensure the best possible chance of zero mechanicals for the upcoming ride we are unable to make exceptions for instore check overs. We will attempt to tighten and adjust any basic mechanical issues during your check over however bikes in unsatisfactory order will need to have necessary repairs completed to be eligible to attend the ride."
