The Riversdale Rugby Club’s annual trail ride fundraiser will be all go this year.

The club is holding the fundraiser at Argyle Station again this year on Saturday, December 2.

Last year, between 300 and 350 riders entered the trail ride and the club raised $10,000.

Club member James McKeown said all ages would be able to get involved in the trail ride.

“It’s a good family day out,” he said.

“There will be something for all ages, and we have a peewee loop for the young ones.”

The fundraiser, which is in its 12th year, was organised by McKeown and fellow rugby club member Scott Weller.

Directions to the ride will be signposted from Balfour and Riversdale on the day.

There will be two different tracks for riders over the age of 15.

“There’s the first loop, which is the bigger of the two, that goes right out the back of the station and the second loop is a shorter one around the front. Both have expert loops off them with some good hill-climbs to challenge the more experienced riders,” McKeown said.

Gunton, who gave permission to use his land on the day.

“We are very grateful to be able to use the land for our fundraiser.”

A barbecue lunch will be run by club members and provided as part of the entry fee.

McKeown said the riders’ bikes did not require registration or a warrant of fitness but should have good brakes and good-grip tyres.

Riders should also come equipped with a helmet and good boots, he said.


Entry on the day will cost $50 for adults and $30 for juniors.

Pre-registration will cost $45 for adults and $25 for juniors.

Registration forms can be picked up at Ewan Allan Honda in Gore.

The trail ride starts at 8am and registrations are open until 10am.Sports ShoesNike Shoes
