This thread is the home of the BDC. Organisation of ride days, trips and other random non bike related posts can be found within. New riders that want to jump on board just throw up a post, most of us don't bite.
If we ever need a mass ride , ive got a dual cab triton 4wd and a decent sized trailer.mick and I hit up Maldon this arvo with great success... seems like there is plenty of riders out there so if we can hook up or cross reference our contact details there should be SOMEBODY going for a ride sometime...We saw a tarago with three (nice!) bikes at the lights in Kangaroo flat on the way home - they said they had been riding out the back of Kangaroo Flat??? Can't say I know too many hills out there but hey, if your reading this let me know and maybe we could also do a Tarrangower trip (Maldon) too..
Also looking at hitting Buller on Sat 15th march - will pass the word on closer to the date, maybe we can get some local riders booked in and fill up some crank holder spaces for the trip up there!
Keep posting in the thread - the more riders the better!!
G'day...looks like a mass ride is on the cards soon! At the moment we have a duel cab ute with 4x crank holders in the back and I am in the process of getting a 4x crankholder for a 6x4 trailer. Does your trailer have anything set up to hold bikes?If we ever need a mass ride , ive got a dual cab triton 4wd and a decent sized trailer.
Ive heard there is a track on Mt Alexander that is a decent length , but i wouldnt know where to start to look for it.
Mt Buller is a easy 3 hour drive from here , you can make it a day trip and still be home for dinner , i had five runs and was farked at the end of that.
Also , as my wife posted , anyone have a wife/girlfriend for her to ride with, even if its only trail riding shed be keen.
There is another bendigo rider , nico jacko , that i havnt hooked up yet but he knows some local stuff , and has built some of the dirt jumps around.
Lastly , i shop at Bendigo Cycles and they can service front and rear shocks , which not many people seem to do anymore.
Nothing set up in the trailer to hold bikes , but it does have a cage , so with careful packing and a rug or two would be good for shuttles.
Mt. Buller could be a bit hard as we have a 3 and a 5 year old , and our family is in adelaide so the babysitter thing is a bit hard.
I would be keen for a wed , or thursday if we could be back by 2.15.
There is some fun singletrack for trail riding around lightning hill ( eaglehawk )
that sunny and i ride every tuesday , anyone is welcome.
i have just been encouraged to go to buller ... so if you have a spare seat , i can do the usual petrol money ...Buller is looking good for a mass ride! There is three of us from work, hopefully sethius and warrior are keen and mick (warrior has 3/4 mates that are keen too), also hooking up with 1/2 doz riders from halls gap / ararat over there and if indica and sunny are keen it could be a huge day!
between all of us I'm sure there is plenty of car/bike space so now all we need to do is keep the 15th of march free!!!
