Saturday 10th February 2018
There are Two courses to cater for different riding abilities. The Coppermine course is a stunning loop of the Dun Mountain Trail all the way to the mineral belt at the Coppermine saddle, where this unique event takes its name from. The Coppermine Epic course has the extra climb to the top of Fringed Hill (900m) and the amazing native forest singletrack descent of Black Diamond Ridge added to the mix and is suited more to the experienced mountain biker. Both courses descend the Boulder Valley, catering for all abilities, with an incredibly fun and flowing piece of single track.
