Explore your own backyard with Pedal Power ACT’s new ACT Trail Tours.
Trail Tours are a series of rides that will be offered to the public throughout October and November 2017. If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to try trail riding, now is your chance.
A Nature Play grant in 2016 allowed Pedal Power ACT to train a new cohort of mountain biking ride leaders, and we now look forward to giving back to the community by running a series of weekend rides, guided by these and other Pedal Power ACT ride leaders.
Our aim is to provide introductory mountain-biking recreation activities for the Canberra community, with Pedal Power ACT’s first foray into cycle-tourism in the ACT. The rides will attract both locals and visitors to experience the great mountain-biking that is available in our region.
Trail Tours will offer both easy and intermediate guided rides, with rides ranging from 1.5 – 2 hours in duration. Participation costs $10.00 per person, per ride. Each ride has a ride leader and tail ender (or sweep) as part of the ride. Spaces are limited to 10 persons per ride.
The rides will be spread across common ACT trails and graded for fitness and difficulty.
Nature Play grants aim to assist with new or existing projects that support being active and increase community participation in nature-based outdoor activities and events.
Enjoying time in nature is integral to our health and well-being and Pedal Power ACT is committed to help ensure there are plenty of opportunities for Canberrans to participate in active recreation outdoors to enrich their everyday lives.
