QLD Snail Trails Beginner ride Mt Mee Sunday Feb 8

Thought I'd kick off the Snail Trails for 2015 with a beginner friendly, easy half day ride through Mt Mee.
This is a ride for people who are quite happy to ride slow, take lots of rest stops and enjoy a relaxed social ride in (mostly) good company.

If the weather doesn't play ball, we will postpone the ride for more suitable beginner riding conditions (so check here before the ride), but a few showers beforehand would be a real bonus... no dust

Ride Capped at 25 bikes maximum.
Meet: Dayboro Bakery, William st Dayboro
When: Sunday 8th Feb - 8.30 for 9.00 ride out.
Grade: Dead easy grade 2 - if you can ride on bitumen, you can do this.
Pace: First gear all day is fine by me. (But the corner markers may linch you later!)


We'll head into Mt Mee forest via easy dirt roads, make our way to The Gantry for a rest and palaver stop, loop out on the Western escarpment track for a stop at the lookout, then back to Dayboro for a well earned (he says jokingly) pastry.
Total klms about 70, so don't fill your 90 litre safari tank if you've not had much dirt riding.
All bikes must be registered and all riders licensed (or learner accompanied by a licensed rider).



Before coming on any of these rides you must read and agree to the disclaimer.
http://snail-trails.sportsontheweb.net/disclaimer.htm
These are informal social rides with no central organiser or any person taking responsibility for others, and you come on these rides at your risk.

Count me and +1 in - I've been looking forward to saying hello and meeting some QLD ADV'ers and my partner is really keen to get some low stress fun trail riding practice in as well.
