Sunday 28th April – 5.30am start Belconnen to Yarrangobilly Caves

This ride may be of interest and may fit with your plans with notice. Most of us will be on 29rs for this ride, I cannot say exactly how a gravel bike would go, it will be a first time for some of us on the Long Plain Rd (65ks and 700metres of climbing approx.)

The Plan is to start 5.30 a.m. can meet you along the way and ride to Yarrangobilly in the day. Water is available at the Goodradigbee river, with three litres of water this will be enough to make the 65ks from this point to Yarrongobilly caves. There is a very comfortable accommodation set up at the caves which will need to be pre-booked.

If you are interested let me know and I’ll give you more information – Peter Igoe-Taylor  0429 059 388
