Dirty Detour – gravel + more

Bring the kids, bring the dog and have a great weekend escape topped off with a bike ride at the beautiful Riverwood Downs in Monkerai NSW. Hidden in the foothills of the World Heritage listed Barrington Tops, just 2.5 hours North of Sydney

With something for the whole family from camping by an open fire, luxury cabin accomodation, horse riding, walking trails, spotting platypus in the pristine Upper Karuah River. Riders can challenge themselves on their choice of 20km, 50km or 90km course, all finished off with a beverage and music around the open fire with a bunch of great people. 

20km – circles the rolling hills of the Monkerai Valley on smooth fast rolling gravel roads before heading back to Riverwood Downs for the after party. This route is suitable to all riders with moderate fitness.

50km – starts with the rolling hills of the Monkerai Valley before heading up toward the hills on some more challenging forestry trails. This course will take you into some pristine forestry with creek crossings and a fair dose of challenges. This route is suitable for riders with moderate fitness.

90km – Are you looking for a little more than your regular gravel ride? Then this 90km burner is for you! This course gets all the stupendous rolling gravel roads with a nice mix of double track and stem chewing climbs, topped off with a dose of white knuckle, eye blurring descents. This route is only suitable for riders with high level fitness and skill level capable of cycling 100km off road in tough terrain.

Dirty Detour is being run in support of Ride Dungog and Where There’s a Will to raise awareness and funds for youth mental health.
