We will be hiring trailer(s) from the Scout Cycling Team for your bike and gear.
Bike Hire is available from the Scout Cycling Team, included in the ticket options in this booking form. We encourage you to bring your own mountain bike, but if you don't have one you can hire for $50 for the 4-day weekend. We will be riding single track mountain bike trails with lots of rocks. Hybrid and cyclocross bikes are unsuitable. Working front suspension is also a must. If you're unsure if your bike is suitable, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
The event will be based out of the Bogong Rover Chalet. The Chalet has hot showers, toilets, kitchen and bunkroom accomadations. BYO sleeping bag, fitted sheet, pillowcase and favourite teddy bear, mattresses and pillows are provided. Venturers will be required to assist with cooking and cleaning chores daily.
The following is a breakdown of the ticket fees for the event. Both leader and venturer forms have the following components:
- $70 - Food and accommodation for 4 days (excludes lunch on the first/last day). This also covers part of the bus, trailer hire and transport while on the mountain.
- $80 - Transport from Mount Waverley to Falls Creek and back again. Leaders coming with the group from Mount Waverley should also select this so we can cover the cost of cars towing trailers.
- $50 - Mountain bike hire for the 4 days for those that don't have a suitable bike.
