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.
Since the ride is at night and the track is unlit, it is necessary to have good lights with a suitable battery life (approx. 2.5-3 hours). We will also be riding supportively (e.g. in pairs to share the light on the path).
Dress appropriately for the weather, and bring an extra layer. Bring a drink and snacks to stay energised for a 2-3hr ride.
Riders: All welcome. A social ride where the group will ride together to support newer riders.
- 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)
- a windproof layer for the return downhill leg (and gloves, warm socks, thermals for warmth, depending on the weather).
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 7.30pm.
