By popular demand the Gingin Discovery Tour will be run again this year.
So come cycle touring with us on the June Foundation day long weekend (1-3 June). If you missed out last year you will discover some interesting parts of Gingin that you have probably never seen before. For those that came last year you will be able to enjoy the trip again.
We will head north from the end of the Clarkson railway line to the top of the Gnangara groundwater mound. There we will visit the Gingin Gravity Discovery Center to drop stuff from the 45m high leaning tower, engage in hands on experiments, exhibits and displays - this will challenge your thinking about science and the Universe!
We will check out some wetlands and brooks that are windows to the normally unseen Gnangara mound groundwater system. Enjoy some pleasant rides through quiet undulating country. If it is not too cloudy at night we will go to the Gingin Observatory and have some great views of our Milky Way galaxy.
This will be a full pannier tour. If you have never done full pannier touring before, this is your chance to get started with an interesting but not too challenging tour. This will be great preparation for the CTA 40th Anniversary tour in 2014. The CTA has pannier and cooking gear that you can hire for a small cost or you can borrow my original panniers for the trip. It really is great fun.
If you would like to go on the tour, or would like more information, please send me an email at: email@example.com. I will need to know the numbers to book the caravan parks etc for the overnight stays.
Look forward to seeing you on the tour.
