Railton - Sheffield and More
This month NorthWest ride will be a circuit out of Railton. We'll travel to Sheffield along the rail trail, with a stop on the way at Redwater Creek Falls. We'll have coffee and cake in Sheffield, then return to Railton for lunch, either back along the rail trail, or express via the road.
There will be an optional play on the pump track in Goliath Park and/or a quick loop on the Wild Mersey Railton MTB loop.
Our ride leader is Patrick Calmels.
Gather by the park/toilets in Railton, just into the road to Kimberley B13. (Turn at the supermarket) MAP
We'll depart Railton at 11.00 am.

Bicycle Network Tasmania makes every effort to ensure our organised rides are safe, however participants are advised to ensure they have insurance against accidents. The best option is to become a member of Bicycle Network. This ensures you have excellent year-round 24/7 cover against both Personal Injury and Third Party Personal/Property damage whilst riding your bike.
Please note - if there are any riders under 16 years old, the adult with them will take primary responsibility for their safety on the ride.
