For those who have booked an afternoon shuttle time, simply drive to the top on the morning, complete the entire Cascades to the Lake Mountain Visitor Centre for the return shuttle, or we will pick you up at one of the several points along the trail once you’ve had enough. Riders who have selected a morning session, we encourage you to venture back up to the resort to enjoy all the afternoon’s festivities.
The day will run as below:
9.00am – Start your Bike Day Out up at the Lake Mountain Resort, where there will be a BBQ breakfast and hot beverages on offer before hitting the trails. Once fuelled, riders will begin Cascades, climbing to the Summit to then descend to Snowy Hill or heading along the mixed flow Trigger Track to connect with Cascades at Snowy Hill.
From here, you will continue along Cascades to the best of your ability. We will have shuttles operating constantly throughout the day, once you have ridden till your leg’s can’t take you any further, choose from our multiple pick up points and discuss with our guest service staff and we will bring you back to the top.
Included in the $45 ticket is a multi shuttle pass, therefore you can access the shuttle service as many times as you need, allowing you to complete your favourite section multiple times such as Arnold Gap to the Gate, or the Gate to Marysville.
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for golden tickets, collecting one per rider along the trail that can be exchanged for prizes and giveaways once you have returned to the top of the mountain in the afternoon.
