Spokes Saturday – Sanderson Middle School

Late ride notice. We’re going to back to School.  Sanderson Middle School has a excellent little set of bumps, jumps and rollers.  They are fun, and fun is good.

It’s suitable for beginner to intermediate riders and beyond.  You can ride as much or as little as you like. In fact you can just watch the others if that’s your thing.

Meet: Sanderson Middle School Corner of Patterson ST and Matthews Road. Anula
Time: 4:45 for a 5pm start.

Bring Helmets and water.
See you there!

Spokes NT Ride – Palmy Urban

Meet: Spokes NT Shop.
Time: 4.45 for a 5pm Start.

Next week, we’ll be up to our usual dusty shenanigans, 5pm rides.

Spokes NT Ride – Urban Ride

This Saturday – Urban ride time.  Come for a jaunt around Darwin City’s hidden (and not-so-hidden) trail gems.

We’ll tour around the city and ride a few hidden urban obstacles.  There will be drops, ledges and stair rides. Urban rides are great for riders of all abilities and fitness because every site has an option to ride as much or as little as you like.

Meet: Stokes Hill Wharf.
Time: 4:45 for a 5pm start.

Following the ride, we’ll be stopping at the wharf eatery for dinner if you’d like to join us.

Spokes NT Saturday Ride. Holmes Jungle.

This Saturday, we’re going somewhere a little different.  Holmes Jungle is a lesser known spot around Darwin.  There’s some trails, some forest and some fun to be had.  We try to get there at least once a year.

Meet: Holmes Jungle Car park
Time: 4:45 for a 5pm start

Bring: The usual.  Basic spares, water.  Gloves are recommended, helmets essential.
From time-to-time.  Biting insects have been known to prevail in the reserve.  Be prepared if you’re of the tasty-to-insects type of person.

See you on the trails!

Spokes NT Saturday – Spokes Track.

This Saturday, we’re going local.  The Spokes Track. A nifty little challenging nugget of a trail close to the shop.  It’s a short, punchy little track.  Following that we’ll drift off around the Howard Springs area for a bit of a poke around.

As usual with most of our rides, this is suitable for novices and beginners. Please note there are some short sections of the Spokes Track you may feel more comfortable walking, but hey, that’s fine. There’s no hurry of rush, and plenty of stops along the way to catch up and re-hydrate.

Meet: Spokes NT Store
Time: 4:45 for a 5pm Start.

Bring your bike, water and basic spares. Helmets are essential.

See you on the trails!
