  • Flinders Ranges Classic XI - 2018

    The Classic is back on for 2018. SA Adv Riders hold this annual get-together as an opportunity for everyone to meet in the iconic Flinders and do whatever takes their fancy, within reason.

    The 2018 event is the eleventh and will be held over the first weekend (3rd-7th) May, 2018.

    Slightly different format this year in that it will be spread across two locations. Angorichina Village in the Parachilna Gorge is 'activity central' with cabins, dorm and camping options (fuel, groceries, meat, booze etc) and Blinman, at the eastern end of the Parachilna Gorge, 17 kms away. Here you can get rooms, dorms and camping. Plus, the pub has great meals and cold booze.

    Both locations are taking bookings for accommodation. Ango Village is on 08-86484842 and the Blinman Pub is on 08-86484867 Some accommodation is already in short supply so be quick.

    If you've got any questions, fire away on here and we'll do our best to answer them. ^roost

    We've previously had trouble with blow-ins shooting and riding on private land as well as roosting tourists in the gorges - not a good look for us who like to go back a couple of times a year, so please do the right thing.

        Flinders Ranges Classic XI - 2018

        Hi Trev - excuse my ignorance on the style of this event, but is this more suited to ADV bikes rather than say 450 enduro bikes?

        We have a group of a few mates that do an annual pilgrimage to Vic High Country, and the odd local trip, but are always keen on local SA ideas. Sensible guys, intermediate-good riders, all rego’d / licensed etc.

        A couple of the guys are more into the ADV / dirt road scene, but is there any single or more challenging tracks as part of the trip?

        Whatever the terrain - getting away for a weekend in the Flinders is never a bad idea.

        Cheers

          It’ll suit you down to the ground mate. Most of the bikes there will be less than 500cc with some AWESOME tracks at your disposal. Have a look at some old ride reports on this forum. I might even look for one and post it up for you. The Flinders has great options for all bikes and even the adv style rides can easily be done on the lighter bikes.

            Better still. Here's Blue Berger's head cam of some enduro riding on a Public Access Route called the Artimore Track....... it's about 90 kms from the Village back to the Village, with about 40 kms of great Flinders transport sections and 50 kms of this!!!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=919Y7gJR2Io

            and Kipo adds some of his footage....

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xZoyyExMMXs

            Funnily enough, a loop of this area ends up right out front of the Blinman Pub - strangely enough!!!!!! How lucky is that?

            Sing out if you have any questions....

                Thanks Trev.

                That looks awesome & lots of fun.

                Is that basically a day each way driving, & 3 days riding?

                I’ll speak with my mates & circulate the vids. We are happy to just camp / swag it.

                Cheers

                  The common practise is to trailer your bikes up there with everything you’d need to camp for a few days. The Village has great ablutions and cooking facilities. Their shop has everything you’d need if you turned up with nothing. Fuel and booze are abundant.

                  You’d leave the Village daily and do your own thing but most people there will be full of suggestions. There are three Public Access Roytes within a few minutes of the Village and there’s legal access to private property via the Mt Samuel Track for about $10 each I think.

                  The Fri night is a pizza night at the nearby Blinman Hotel and the Village tuns a bus there and back.

                  I’d say that this is THE best get-together for bike riders in Oz. Great people, great riding and better nights around a fire.....

                      Thanks Trev.

                      I spoke with Dave at Ango today. Just trying to confirm who’s in from our crew. Look forward to getting up there & meeting lots of you guys, and beers - and oh yeah, some trail riding too.

                        Well done. Give us a shout if you need to know anything, but if you go prepared for a few days camping you’ll be sweet. Anything you forget can be bought at the store at the Village - great meat packs!!

                            Only two months to go. Numbers are high, if you're contemplating attending you'd better give Dave a ring at Ango Village and book your bed!!
