Practice Ride Days
Garapine hosts regular ride days open to all MTB riders. All riders must have current MTBA membership and bring their membership details for sign-in on arrival. Please RSVP to our Facebook events if you plan to attend, these will be posted at least one week out from each ride day. There is a small fee per rider for riding at Garapine. Shuttling is also available, see Facebook for details. If you have any questions regarding Ride Days, please feel free to contact us.
Saturday 28 April Ride Day – Important Shuttle info
Being the day before race day which is traditionally very busy, we are aiming to get riders a good number of shuttle runs while minimising wait time.
Please read ALL the information below as this is NOT A NORMAL SHUTTLE DAY.
To achieve this, there will be two shuttle sessions on Saturday 28 April:
– Session 1: 7.00am – 11.00am
– Session 2: 11.00am – 3.00pm
There will be two shuttle vehicles running at each session.
Spots on the shuttle will be limited to get you a good number of runs while minimising wait time.
You are still welcome to ride at Garapine before/after your shuttle session time (pedal up).
Garapine will be open from 6am so that Shuttle Session 1 can arrive and sign-in prior to a prompt shuttle start time of 7am. Tracks close to all riders at 4pm.
** NO SHOWS ** See shuttle booking page for details.
Note: If you arrive 10 minutes after the start time of your session and have not notified Garapine by prior email of your intended late arrival, your spot on the shuttle will be cancelled and given to another person.
Accommodation is available onsite at Garapine on the weekend of racing (prior bookings essential).
