Our annual event, The Dirty Weekend was a roaring success with over 420 riders taking part. Despite some wild weather, the atmosphere was nothing short of electric. We’ll let these two videos do the talking.
Voila, a bit of footage from Saturday’s ride.
And of course, a little bit more action from Sunday.
For those unfamiliar with The Dirty Weekend, it is held in the Cudlee Creek Forest and is an annual mountain bike ‘chill-allenge’. The most recent edition attracted more than 400 riders – the biggest to date – with hundreds more coming to watch, volunteer and celebrate the region’s booming mountain bike culture. People have come from Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and as far away as Queensland for a weekend stay.
Whether in teams, pairs or on their own, participants suck up the beauty of the forest around a 10km track for 6, 12 and even 24 hours.
The Dirty Weekend has been held annually since 2001 and continues to attract hundreds of mountain bikers, families, friends & volunteers to the region. Spread the word. This event is South Australia’s best kept secret, and it’s time that more people knew about it.
