Bike Hike Relocated to Tapio Rodeo, Arumpo Road NSW

Due to wet track conditions and the possibility of more rain, it has been decided that the bike-hike will be held at Tapio Station's Rodeo, Arumpo Road (refer to map below). We will be camping directly behind the rodeo grounds. This will be the location of Friday night's camp and the pick up on Sunday afternoon. All other details remain the same. Pack light and be prepared to set up a new camp for Saturday night at the end of our ride.

Sunraysia District Bike Hike 2013

As the District Bike Hike is only ONE WEEK away, we need to get Health Forms returned so we know the number of Scouts attending.

Friday 14th June at 6pm (5th Hall) or 6:30pm (Wentworth Scout Hall) to Sunday 16th June at 2pm (Perry Sand Hills).

Meet at the Hall at 6:00pm for a 6:30pm departure to the Wentworth Scout Hall. (Meet us there if that is more convenient).

We will be camping in and around the hall on Friday night, then beginning our 'hike' Saturday morning.

We will ride all day Saturday and camp that night at Six Mile Creek.

We will ride to the Perry Sand Hills on the Sunday and finish around 2-3pm. Parents to pick up their Scout from the Perry Sand Hills Carpark.

Scouts need to provide their own bike (in good working condition), puncture repair kit, pump, helmet, drink bottle. Scouts will be self-catering so need to plan their menu and bring all required food. Water will be available to fill up drink bottles. Cooking equipment and tents can be shared with friends.Bring warm sleeping gear as it will be VERY cold. Bring an extra blanket!

Scouts are not expected to carry all of their own gear, just a day back-pack with their lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, spray jacket.

Scouts will not be permitted to ride if they don't have their own helmet and enclosed shoes.

For more information call John on 0477175911 or check out our Facebook group for the ongoing discussion about everything 5th Mildura.

I RECOMMEND YOU FILL YOUR BIKE TUBES WITH SLIME.
$15-$18 protects 2 tubes. Good investment.
