Pipeline at Night

Experience the Pipeline Track in the dark, from Ferntree to Tin Cabin. We will take a break at Tin Cabin to light a fire and warm up.

Dress warmly, bring a drink and snacks to stay energised for a 2.5-3hr ride.

NOTE - at this time of year it will be COLD and DARK.  The track is not lit, so so it is mandatory to have lights in good working order and suitable battery life (approx. 2.5-3 hours).  We will also be reliant on riding supportively (e.g. in pairs to share the light on the path).

Riders:  All welcome. A social ride where the group will ride together to support newer riders.

Bring:

  • good front and rear lights for your bike
  • a torch for when we arrive at the cabin
  • snacks to stay energised for a 2.5-3 hr ride (and marshmallows for the fire?)
  • water (also may be available along the route)
  • gloves, warm socks, thermals for warmth and a windproof layer for the return downhill leg

The route: this is a gentle uphill ride along unsealed paths, all offroad, with a steady downhill run on the return leg.  Suits hybrids and mountain bikes.  It is safe, with some gentle gradients and will last about two and a half hours.   2-B-22.  Map of the ride.

Meet: in the carpark of the Ferntree Tavern 30 minutes before the ride start time - of 8pm.
