After morning tea we will jump on the bikes for a warm up session from the main Derby trailhead riding a few easy trails before working up to longer and harder ones so you can get a feel of the trails. After lunch it's a fun afternoon ride on the Return to Sender trail. Late afternoon we will head to our accommodation, unpack and enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner. Great fun warm up day.

Today we ride the unique and adventurous 42 km Bay of Fires trail. This is a day to remember as this trail is an amazing full day adventure with everything, its scenic, its flowy, it's got a great climb and best of all it finishes at the beautiful beach on the famous Bay of Fires coastline. Enjoy a swim at the end before we sit and relax on the beach and soak it all in before we drive back to Derby for gourmet pizza for dinner. Awesome day.
