Suzuki Trail Tamer - Saturday August 10th 2019
This was a brand new 1 day trail ride run for the first time in December 2018, and riders recommended this as having been the best trail ride ever with so much variety of tracks and terrain! It's in a fantastic new location, about 10 minutes past Kinloch. Brand new trails - all main trails graded! Expert loops, single track! Kids and novice loops!
The venue is stunning. From new gum forest to pines & existing native forest trails and old farm tracks...a huge variety, it'll be a superb days riding! Access is easy from the road onto an old airstrip with a huge amount of parking for everyone.
Awesome feedback from riders: "Outstanding event. Brilliant trails & fantastic weather. 3 laps of 300 exc nirvana. Cheers to Epic team."
