Cost: $220.
Raffle Tickets: $20

The Kowen Forest Ride is DSMRA’s premier event for the year.

So what do you get for your $220 entry fee?

The Ride

We have organised for exclusive access to a huge pine forest just near Canberra Airport called Kowen Forest for us to hold an enduro motorcycle ride. Throughout that forest; selectively choosing the best trail we have hand cut three epic single trail loops – which we reckon is over 100kms of single trail. Within this trail we have optional trails; and plenty of easy options for those who get tired. On hand we have knowledgeable sweeps; some of whom are professional riders. Additionally we have beginners training and tours. This trail is open for epic riding on Saturday and Sunday until mid-afternoon. So much riding; that even the best riders rarely see all our trails.


Please read the supplementary regulations on refunds Supplementary Regulations.

The Camping

At the event camping is included for Friday and Saturday night. In the middle of the pine forest is a huge clearing we use for camping. At the site there is heaps of toilets, spare water, bins and in the evening a selection of food options. The site is big enough to have some peace.
