Some 2,300 men women and children took part in this 2 day festival. More than 800 stayed and camped at the Spicers Hiddenvale retreat. Hiddenvale Station MTB Adventure park hosted the event across their 12,000 acres of hilly terrain. It was fantastic to see how the kids really got into the bike riding on the farm tracks as well as some exciting single track rides. The idea is to develop Hiddenvale into one of Australia’s premier adventure parks. The Adventure Pack currently has over 60kms of single tracks for riders and aims to grow this to 100kms in the next 2 years.
I did the 87 kms which took me 8 hours 20 mins and was exhausted by the end. Not so Brucie Wood who did it in about 5 and a half hours but he is younger than me and a semi professional mountain biker. I’m looking forward to the event next year at Hiddenvale in August/September.
