Date: Saturday 27th June
Where: Western Sydney Parklands at The Dairy Picnic Area, just off the M7
Start Times: 12:00 - 2:00pm
Details: The area was part of the equestrian eventing course for the Sydney 2000 Olympics with a number of the jumps still littered around the map. It is the perfect place for a ride with a few hills, some single track as well as bike paths and wide grassy expanses. Be sure to bring a picnic as there are plenty of tables and BBQ's at the start / finish and the weather is sure to be perfect (fingers crossed).
This is a medium length event with 5 courses and a novice for those with kids or wanting to try MTBO for the first time. Finish times are expected to be in the order of 60 - 90 mins. The area is largely open with plenty of well marked tracks and paved bike paths. It is perfect for kids and novices alike so if you know anyone who you think would like to try MTBO then this will be the perfect event for them.
For those more experienced and wondering if it is worth the effort of coming out for a 1hr ride you can call in to the Wylde Mountain Bike Park just down the road afterwards for a bit extra. This is one of the few proper mountain bike parks in Sydney and for those that haven't ridden there it contains some really sweet single track. Full details of the park can be found here including the trail map.

Normal entry deadline is Monday 22nd at 12 midnight
