Downhill Fun Day - Beechworth, Vic
THE DOWNHILL MTB FUN DAY - Basically it's just that ! A fun day of downhill mountain biking with transport provided along with a BBQ lunch. Two downhill rides are available on the day. One is a moderate ride on fire trails suitable for intermediate riders. The other ride is considerably harder involving technical, steep and rocky singletrack and steep, fast fire roads. This ride is only suitable for very competent riders. Riders for the Downhill MTB Fun Day must be reasonably confident and have a sense of adventure. It's all about having fun so give it a go ! Both rides are 6km long with a vertical drop of 730 metres, the biggest in Oz !
