This will be the first of the 2014 MBUG Challenge Series of rides which will 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 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.
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.
