The 50km course has been designed for those ready to take their mountain biking to the next level.
If you are have mountain biked before and want to challenge your skills and fitness in the name of cancer research, this is the ride for you.
Taking in the Lake Wendouree, part of the road course and the Yarrowee trail, this option heads out along the Goldfields track to White Swan Reservoir and back to push your skills and fitness just a little. Yes, there are one or two hills and a single track to provide a challenge, but hey it is mountain biking after all, we want you to feel the burn, just a little. With a couple of refreshment stops along the way we will support you completely to ensure you can achieve this exciting riding goal.
A shared refreshment station near White Swan Reservoir, means you can catch up with family friends doing the 28km or those doing the hard core extreme ride as you all pass through a well setup refreshment station with food, drinks and toilets available.
Approximately 15km road, 5km shared use trail, 13km fire trail/single track
