We tried to run this one earlier in the year, but the weather was against us. We know you are all itching to try yourselves against this course so we have put it back on the calendar. for a second try. This was to be the first of the 2014 MBUG Challenge Series of rides which would offer those who want to push themselves a little harder the opportunity to do so.
Instead of riding out from Broadford to the top of the Murchison Spur and turning back, today’s ride will add an optional challenge section which will take us all the way to Strath Creek before turning back. Of course this means a serious descent and an equally serious ascent is added into the ride if you choose to take the challenge.
As indicated above, the challenge section is optional, if you do not want to do it you are welcome to turn back to Broadford at the top of the Murchison Spur or indeed anywhere along way out.
The route is all bitumen so you can bring the roadie if you wish, just remember there are hills involved and that your trusty old hybrid or MTB with the triple chainring and that lovely low granny gear might make this ride a little easier.
