  • Description

    Our club members share a passion for the bush and being able to experience that through mountain biking. Our weekly Saturday brings that passion alive with others. Sometimes your mates can’t be bothered or they can only ride at certain times, this is where TORC comes in. The proposal is to have regular Saturday rides with a monthly cycle of four different rides (and an additional ride for months with five Saturdays). The initial schedule is as follows:

    What to Bring
    Bring a spare tube and pump. Also you can bring some food and water, just in case you run out of steam, and that's not pleasant!
     
    Parking
    If you are driving to Turramurra, please park under the shopping centre.
     
    Bad Weather
    If it's raining make your own call. Most riders don't come but it's not officially canceled. Have a coffee in Bar Stelvio instead!
     
    Insurance
    If you are not a member of TORC (or other MTB Australia affiliated club) and would like to participate in this ride then you will need to join our club. Joining the club can be done at Turramurra Cyclery. The cost will vary depending on if you get a racing license (or not) and also your age. Cycling is a dangerous sport and can result in serious injury or even death, if you don’t currently have a MTB Australia license you are uninsured and you are riding at your OWN RISK, and will be responsible for your own losses and any damage that you might cause.
