We are very proud of the extensive work and upgrades that have been carried out on the XC course over the past two years. This has taken an incredible amount of money and volunteer labour to create and maintain. We are excited that there is a lot of interest in schooling over the course where we welcome your patronage. In order to ensure your experience over the course is the best and safest it can be we have introduced a booking system to ensure you have the appropriate access and freedom to school when you arrive. See XC Bookings and T&C's tab to book your ride!
