This 50km mountain bike ride is not for the faint hearted!
It is our biggest and most EXTREME Mountain Bike ride- for the truly experienced mountain bike rider.
You will take on all the gnarly hills that we could find and mix it with fun single track and fire trail to provide a challenging but rewarding mountain biking experience. The course offers a support ride on a track that you could not find on your own.
You will be well taken care of with volunteers along the way to get you across the line and finishing this awesome ride.
For those pushing themselves with the 50km for the first time, there is a cut off time of 12pm for riders to pass through the Codes Forest Road feed station.
If you miss the cut off time, you will be directed to follow the shorter 30km loop back to the finish line.
Are you up for a challenge? See you at the start line!
Approximately 15km road, 5km shared use trail, 30km fire trail/single track.
