Warburton Mountain Bike Destination Project

Warburton Mountain Bike Destination Project

Yarra Ranges Council along with Parks Victoria, Dept. Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Melbourne Water, and Vic Roads are seeking input on their upcoming Warbuton Mountain Bike project. The project will be building a trail network within the Yarra Valley which is 90km east of the Melbourne CBD.

Warburton is set to become one of Australia’s premier mountain bike destinations with planning well underway for approximately 160 kilometres of trail in the surrounding area. The project is now at the Master Planning stage which includes a detailed assessment of potential alignments and impact assessments.

Consultation with adjacent land owners has been conducted during May and June. The public are invited to contribute to this project by providing input into the trail alignment, the mix of trail grading and supporting facilities and services.

This project is being coordinated by a partnership comprising of Yarra Ranges Council, Parks Victoria, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Melbourne Water and Vic Roads.

Club Ringtail/Wooroi Ride Summary 22/04/2018

Club Ringtail/Wooroi Ride Summary 22/04/2018
The only wet crossing

The intention was to ride the northern areas around Ringtail Creek however given Marty’s recce the day before the routes were still pretty boggy we decided to head to Wooroi instead. However to keep things at least a little different to the usual Wooroi ride the 17 of us continued on through Tewantin National park (north) and did the ‘sunken gardens’ single track that runs parallel with MacKinnon Drv before grinding up Old Tewantin Road and heading down towards Cooroy Noosa Rd. Here we took a sneaky route onto Coveys Rd that took us to the top track of Wooroi at Sunrise Rd.

Wooroi was perfect riding with nay a muddy spot however we avoided the known wet areas and stuck to Milkmaid and Turn 10. Once done with the single track it was a easy cruise back to Tewantin and then off to Cafe Doonan for coffee.

Thanks the ride guys and we hope your finger heals up quick Simon!
