Hi folks, I've received a few enquires about another Strathbogie Slider this year.
My current plan is a weekend of rides in Strathbogies with a few different ride options. I've found a few more good roads and some low traffic linking roads - so it's basically choose your own gravel adventure.
- from 50km, less steep climbs and passing a few local wineries that friends, partners and less experienced riders might be interested in doing,
- to 200km - basically slider route from last year with additions at start and end so the ride now starts and finishes at Euroa.
- Plus various options in between
- All ride option legs (except easy 50km) will intersect at Ruffy or Strathbogie hamlets - riders can meetup there and get water/food and change their plans mid-route depending on how they are going.
All rides start and finish at Euroa - so no train return link this time, that wasn't really worth the hassle. Riders can come for 1 day and smash themselves, or stay overnight and split the route into 2 easier rides over 2 days. Still same basis as last year - no cost / self-supported.
Currently looking at weekend of 19-20 March 2016, if you want to mark the dates in your diaries.
Here is link to last year's ride to give you some idea of the terrain.https://nixtrader.wordpress.com/rides/slider/
