The Rock Wallaby
The Rock Wallaby won't be appearing in 2013, due to negotiations being underway to formalise access for mountain biking to the Tharawal-Appin area. Fingers crossed this won't take too long and the furry critter will be back in 2014!
Appin rocks! And Appin has lots of rocks which is why it's so fun to ride! The Rock Wallaby was born in 2011 at the request of the township of Appin as part of their Bicentenary celebrations and to highlight what an oasis of singletracky goodness Appin has become.
The event is held with the kind assistance of the people of Appin and Wollongong Mountain Bike Club (WMBC).
The Rock Wallaby's main act will be a 50km half marathon mountain bike event, with a support act of a 25km event with a number of sub-categories within each one.
The course will entail one or two laps taking in a 26km tour of Appin’s great natural terrain – including the renowned singletrack loop which is home track to WMBC which will be uniquely split up by sections of fire trail and other singletrack. As is well known with Appin, the riding will be technical in parts and flowy and smooth in others. It will be a challenge to ride the complete loop without dabbing, however it has been designed so as not to be too daunting for the novice rider.
