Didn't Echuca just have a 3hr not long ago? Nearly went up for it.
It was early April, a number of our guys and girls went down. Mrs George was hoping for a weekend away for her birthday, told her next year. September would be a good separation for @Daniel Hale to consider.

I was more thinking if I was already travelling to Echuca, then Castlemaine wouldn't be much different.

Could even make a trip of it and check out Harcourt while you're around the area (only 15 mins up the road). Worth the extra day, if you've still got legs after a 3/6hr

Not happy, Jan.
Remind me why they used an aboriginal name for a mountain bike park? Didn’t think mountain biking was really a thing for them before the Europeans turned up...

Also, Ayers Rock was named that by its original indigenous climbers.
Good one, @Haakon.
Still don’t get what it’s got to do with mountain biking. And no one knows what the original name for the rock was - it’s been Ayers Rock, ularu and whatever it was called by the first few waves of migration of humans through that part of the world.

It was a while ago, but the current locals kicked out the earlier ones. We should find out what they called it and rename it again :)

It's always been on the third weekend in September. Aligns with Victorian school holidays if nothing else. And there's always something else on in either southern Victoria or South Australia that weekend...it can't really be helped. If we tried to avoid clashes with other events...it would never happen. Funnily enough...typical entry numbers have always been very good for such a regional event.
