Milton South Coast - Parent and child ride . Expressions of Interest

Hello again, after a 10 year break from riding ( having children tends to force this upon some of us ), I have returned to DBW! Signed up in 2002, riding an XR400, met some really cool guys and girls and rode some very cool trails in a few states with the DBW crew.

So time flies.....but here I am again + 1 young rider in tow.

I am seeking expressions of interest for any parent/parents that have young children who ride bikes and are keen to meet up with myself and my son. He is almost 13 years old and we rode the amazing Milton single trails with some fire trails mixed in a few weekends ago.

We were thinking it would be pretty cool to have other young riders in similar age and capabilities to ride with.

Details of the trails - I would say from an adults point of view the ride would be an average grade 2. Some single trail is steep and there are obstacles such as the usual log, tree root and rocks to negotiate.

All assistance will be given where needed and the ride pace is as slow or fast as the riders need.
A designated lead rider who knows the area well will be leading us and I will ride sweep.
The only criterion that I ask is that the young rider be able to handle a full day on their bike, capable of riding tight single track with some hills, and most of all smile and have fun!!

The entire ride loop is 90kms - refuel at Termeil service station which is on the Prince Highway.

My son rides a KLX 140. A motorcross 65, 80 or similar will be impossible to ride this loop.

Any further questions? Please send me a pvt message and I will forward you my mobile number so we can have a chat.

Of course, there will be and adults ride coming very soon, so stay tuned.

Regards

Mark.

Thats good news Love Muscle.

Every other young rider must be too busy playing Fortnite or posting up on Instagram.

I know it may be a little daunting to take a 12 year old in an unfamiliar area, particularly on single track, but you can be assured that there is no better place for the young riders to explore this area.

As i mentioned, this is a ride for parents/carers with their child/children. Not restricted to Dads and sons only.



Regards

Mark

Hey Mark, great idea.
I've run my boy around on a KLX140 in Merlya a few times on similar difficulty.
Its a bit of a hike to get down to Milton, but next school holidays we may be keen to join for a day.
Cheers
