Simon is organising another club ride for us – this time into the
Orari Gorge, from Orari Station.
Sunday 14th July
Timaru – carpool at the SBS Events Centre carpark on Morgans Road at
8:45, leaving at 9:00.
Orari Gorge Station – stock yards at the end of Tripp Settlement
Road (North of Geraldine) at 9:45 (don’t unload your bike
here because we will drive a bit further into the station).
The route will take us along a public track that sidles along the
banks of the Orari, mostly gravel 4wd type track. There are no big
climbs involved, however there are many fords to cross (on side
streams, nothing over knee deep) so expect wet feet by the end of
it! We will ride for approx. 2 hours then stop for a lunch break
and head back the same way we rode in.
Total ride time will be approximately 4 hours.
Thing to bring:
– As always when in the outdoors, carry a rain coat and warm
– Plenty of water and some real food to chew on.
– Chain lube for the wet.
– Spare tube and usual tools etc.
– Dry set of clothing, socks and shoes in the car.
