This Sunday 24th September we will be returning to an old favourite of the clubs, the Kinglake Canter ride through the Kinglake National Park. It’s a lovely ride through native woodlands along a combination of forest track, fire trails and some stunning single track. We have not been through this area since the fires last year and it will be interesting to see how the area has recovered.
