Adventure Club: Mountain Biking at Hidden Vale Adventure Park
On Sunday, 10 March, 14 boys and 2 parents ventured to Hidden Vale Adventure Park to experience the mountain bike trails on offer. The day was overcast, although it did become hot as the day progressed. Happy Gilmore, 007, Dodgem, Trailer Trash and Plane Sailing (to name some of the trails ridden) provided for flowy riding and all the boys were able to meet the challenges of the park, with each riding within their capabilities. Trailer Trash was especially popular with a number of boys taking the opportunity for multiple runs.
A broken pedal and a broken derailleur almost ended the day for two of the boys. Special thanks to Hidden Vale for ‘saving the day’, allowing use of their bikes. By the end of the day, the uphill and downhill sections balanced out to a net gain of zero. The boys rose to the challenge with approximately 20 km of single track ridden.
