LDTR Women's Lysterfield Social Rides

Join us for a relaxed social ride on Lysterfield's beautiful mountain bike trails, amongst forest covered hills and countless kangaroos.  We ride in 2 groups, so regardless of your ability and fitness, this is the ride for you.  You'll meet like-minded women (18+), your kids will think you're cool, your co-workers will marvel at your weekend plans and best of all you'll have fun.

Are you new to the sport? Wanting to get back into it after a few years away?  Guys, are you looking to get your partner into mountain biking?  The BEGINNERS group may be right for you, whether you’ve never ridden a mountain bike before, or you’re hooked on wide dirt trails but don’t have the confidence to consistently ride narrower trails with roots and tighter corners. You’ll gain the confidence and strength to take your mountain biking to the next level.

Are you loving Lysterfield’s blue rated singletrack but are itching for a social adventure? Sign up with the INTERMEDIATE group.  This is suitable for riders comfortable on a variety of singletrack which might include mud, loose rocks, narrow trails tightly lined with trees and small obstacles.  There will be some hills to go up, so bring your gears and a moderate level of fitness to handle approximately 400m of climbing.  Our rides are fun and non-competitive while providing an opportunity for you try new challenges, obstacles, and trails to help you grow as a mountain biker.

The Details:

Time & Place: Please enter via Horswood Road, drive through the gates and turn right at the roundabout into the MTB carpark, then turn right.  We meet at the trail map sign at the top of this carpark.
Join us on the 4th weekend of the month (alternates Sat/ Sun) at 9.15am. 

Duration: Approx 2hrs riding.  Join us post ride for a cuppa and to share in some of Zoe's world famous cupcakes. We love to hang out and share some tall tales about our adventures.

Please bring: your mountain bike in safe working order, helmet, spare tube, drinking water and snack. For post ride refreshments, please BYO mug, and you're welcome to bring a little something to share (but no obligation!).

Cost: FREE, but you must register online.  See website, forum or Facebook for the link to the next ride registration.  Open to club and non-club members over 18 years old.

Optional Recreation permit provides you with public liability and personal accident cover for the event.  $10/day for Non-MTBA member. Recreation day permits are available for purchase with your online rego for the ride. If you choose not to purchase a Recreation Permit you WILL NOT be covered by insurance and you participate at your own risk.

2017 Ride dates

Sunday 30th July - Already happened! :o :)

Saturday 26th August - Sign up at https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=3999

*** AUGUST SPECIAL EVENT! *** Join us at 8.15am as we teach how to do a simple bike safety check before the social ride.  You should check your bike over EVERY time you ride, so learn a quick effective method to help keep it working safely.  If time permits we’ll teach how to change a puncture, because its so much cooler to change your flat tyre trailside than to do the walk of shame back to the car.

Before the Women's Social Ride on Sunday 29th July 2018 (register here: https://online.mtba.asn.au/ERegister.aspx?E=5748 ), we have the awesome team from Life of Bikes coming for a special Bike fitting session.

The session will provide advice and assistance to get you properly positioned on your bike and to get your suspension dialled for a better ride.


We will go through:

Seat height and position
Cockpit set up
Suspension set up
Suspension settings

We’ll work with you to make adjustments and you can test how it feels along the Trailmix Trail or Skills Park. We can re-adjust till we get it right and you’ll be set to join us for a super fun ride with the women around the park.

8am to 9am.

Women's only social ride 9.15am
