BLITZ Rides are great if you're just getting a taste of Adventure riding or learning navigation skills, experienced riders will enjoy getting out for a blast too.

You might also like to bring your family or a mate along to carry your gear in a 4WD, if so, please let us know in advance.

 

They'll need to attend any event briefings and be able to follow route instructions with a GPS and be prepared to lend a hand if they're needed along the course.

More details of each event can be found on our events blog with links to register as they're published.

Barkbusters BLITZ events are open to all licenced riders and discounts apply to NAVIG8 subscribers.

 

What others are saying.

Russell Paterson

First and foremost really enjoyable. Well organised, good communication and cater well for all levels of rider.

Michael Risi

Got the files and downloaded them. This is quality work. Great set of instructions and well laid out easy to follow ride plan. I’m a suck it and see Garmin Basecamper and I uploaded to my Zumo 590 without a hitch. I’m set. Looking forward to Saturday’s ride.

Well done.

Elton Button

What a great day with everyone on the Ride360 Barkbuster 1 Day Blitz and big thanks to the support Crew and all the sponsors 

Richard Novatin

A big shout out of thanks to Darren Cook who gave up some of his evening tonight to help me (a navigator device newbie incompetent) to get the functionality out of a NavVI from such incredibly detailed and well built “track files” he built
