Barkbusters BLITZ #1



A one day ride starting from our property in Cambewarra (near Nowra) and finishing at Shellharbour.


We'll be taking in a road that's not been opened since the bushfires and is marked for closure in the year ahead.


It might be too close to Xmas for some, but we don't want to miss this opportunity. Amazingly, it means we'll also have completed all 6 BLITZ events during one of the toughest years on record.



1 Day Navigation event.

All makes of bikes welcome, awards and prizes based on timing and accuracy of day one.


Laughter and pink tutu's possible for lack of either !



The BLITZ rides are designed to suit everyone and perfect if you're just getting a taste of adventure riding or learning navigation skills, experienced riders will enjoy getting out for a blast too.


The planned routes are scenic and easy to navigate whilst offering a whole heap of fun and there's always something thrown in for a challenge.


Just follow the loaded tracks and hit selected checkpoints to be eligible for prizes and a series trophy.


Each course also passes listed motocaches, so as a NAVIG8 subscriber you can claim these along the way and also add the kms to the Kruncher challenge.
