Rid­ers roll in, all for the fun of it

South Western Times - - Sport -

MORE than 250 trail mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers will hit the famed Iron­stone Ad­ven­ture Rid­ing Club for the an­nual Capel 200 Trail Bike Rally on Satur­day.

In its 41st year, the an­nual com­pe­ti­tion will see hun­dreds of rid­ers hit the dirt track for a fun-filled week­end.

Rid­ers can camp near the track to­mor­row night, be­fore hit­ting the fan­tas­tic course through the Capel-Jar­rah­wood State For­est.

Capel 200 event or­gan­iser Rob Har­vey said the event would be a great op­por­tu­nity for rid­ers to en­joy the beau­ti­ful Capel-Jar­rah­wood area in a safe and re­laxed event.

Col­lie-Pre­ston MLA Mick Mur­ray will open the event and send the rid­ers off on Satur­day morn­ing.

Iron­stone Ad­ven­ture Rid­ing Club sec­re­tary Roy Carew said the event was not com­pet­i­tive and more about hav­ing fun in safe and fan­tas­tic en­vi­ron­ment.

“Peo­ple go rid­ing on their own, but this gives them an op­por­tu­nity to ride with friends on a des­ig­nated track,” he said.

Carew said the club used lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tions and busi­nesses to be part of the event so that they could give back to the com­mu­nity.

Rid­ers pre­pare to take of in the 2016 Capel 200.
