View the image below to see how to Access with the little ones to the first Race of the Series
Access to kids track : Hackett side – wary of steep hill down into Majura Pines and keep to fire road (FR) and enter at Beyond the Black Stump
Majura Parkway carpark – ride across under PKWY and then along fire road – bear in mind climb up boundary fence.
COGS Kids Race at 2.30pm: Race Director Gordo Brewster
Access is a little hard and plenty of time needs to be allowed to ride across from either carpark. Both have some steep fire roads involved and parents must ensure that their children can cope with this getting across. There are no toilet facilities as well
I would allow at least 1/2hr so no one is “stressed” coming across and with the race wanting to get underway at 2.30pm aim to get to Race HQ by 2pm at the latest for Parents to fill in a participation form, pay $5, tie on race plate and go for a lap around the flat course.
Race HQ is in off Beyond the Black Stump – (just be wary of riders who need to use a little bit of the trail to go the other way (both courses are anti clockwise) and there is plenty of natural shade. Please bring in water (limited supplies will be there and fruit juice for afterwards)
Race length will be 1 lap for 5 and under, 2 laps for 8 and under and 3 laps for over 8 – this is just a participation race with random draw prizes and drinks to be given out afterwards.
If parents are staying on to ride afterwards ensure your kids are old enough to look after themselves as organisers will be busy with race logistics.
Lastly Gordo would appreciate assistance running this race as well – contact him via Facebook
