FREE Junior Ride Day
PLEASE NOTE ENTRIES FOR THIS RIDE HAVE NOW CLOSED.
Otway Enduro Club is holding a FREE junior ride day. This event is open to Otway Enduro Club members only (Juniors – up to 16 years can join for $25 per year). The aim of our Junior Ride Day is to encourage our children to have fun on motorbikes, improve their skills and to ride with other Juniors. The ride day is on private property at Irrewillipe.
If you are not a Junior Member please join up online here.
The riding is off-road on both single track and open grassed area. We have set-up two single track loops which include some testing hills. For riders not ready for this, there is an open grassed area available to develop your skills.
We are always keen to have extra help, we do already have plenty of help from parents on the ride day, but we are keen to get parents to help with the track set-up the day before the ride day. Please ring Mark Paton on 0458 326 815 if you able to help set-up the tracks on the Saturday. At this property you can camp on Saturday night if that is easier. please let Mark know if you are keen to camp.
