9 – 10 June 2018 -
More than 600 competitors and 1200 spectators gather on a pile of dirt each year for the thrash it or crash it but keep it coming competition – the Theodore Trail Bike Ride.
A fundraiser for Theodore State School, the event is now in its eighth year and it just keeps on getting bigger. With a family focus, riders as young as four years old come to try their skills on the hills.
A post-challenge obstacle course adds hilarity as riders try their luck flying over logs, rolling barrels and a water course, the antics considered a good laugh at the riders’ expense.
Then it’s movie time, the best part of the day, when everyone can sit back and re-live the action all over again with home movies of their heroic acts.
The Student Council and teachers run a food stall with real barista coffee and the onsite catering is run by community groups.
Held at Gyranda, 11 kilometres north of Cracow and 43 kilometres south of Theodore.
