The Currowan Endurance Ride is just around the corner, as Nelligen prepares to be inundated with equestrians and their horses.
The ride will take place on August 4 and 5, with a base on River Road in Nelligen.
The ride will offer rides of 10 kilometres, 20 kilometres, 40 kilometres, and 80 kilometres.
All the legs are solid under foot on a variety of surfaces, with fantastic views of farmlands and the rainforest.
The 40km leg follows the River Clyde, before turning up some less used dirt roads through the bush.
There is approximately 25 kilometres of bush track that never goes higher than 50 metres above sea level. A further six kilometres will be through the rainforest, before a four-kilometre climb to an elevation of about 150 metres above sea level.
There will be easy access to fresh water throughout the ride, and there is minimal time on tar roads.
The second 40km leg (the second leg of the 80km ride) winds along the banks of the Clyde River all the way to Shallow Crossing and back. The leg features dirt tracks and fresh water creeks.
The 20-kilometre social ride follows the Clyde River and a looping bush track back to base camp.
The 10km ride follows River Road for half-a-kilometre, before turning up a quiet bush track where you’ll meet no other horse or vehicle. Approximately six kilometres in, riders will follow the Clyde River back to base.
Day memberships are available for the 10km, 20km, and 40km rides. Bookings are essential at www.trybooking.com/377239.
