Here are confirmed details for a club ride on The Brothers range, through land farmed by the Westgarth family.
Brothers Range, near Cave. Starting from the Westgarth farmhouse, 910 Brothers Rd at 9:30am.
To get there, travel towards Cave from Pleasant Point
Turn right onto Clelands Rd, look for the ‘Stern Bull Sale’ sign.
Cross the river and turn left onto Brothers Rd.
Travel up Brothers Rd for 9.1km. On your right there will be a long hedge on the right. Just before the end of the hedge, some cattle yards and the farmhouse are tucked
Optional extra – if you want you can park near the bridge and ride all the way up Brothers Rd. This will add an extra 9km and 390m climb to the start of the ride. We are not including this as part of the club ride, so if you want to do this, travel there yourself, allowing plenty of time to ride up the road, and we will meet you at the house.
