2018 Kowen Forest Ride Selling Fast! | Features | News

The 2018 DSMRA Kowen Forest Ride is just around the corner and there are still a handful of tickets available. If you’ve never done the Kowen Forest Ride is a must do for any trailbike rider.

Kowen State Forest is closed to the public and the DMSRA is given exclusive access to host the annual ride, meaning it’s the only opportunity you’ll get to experience what Kowen has to offer.

Three loops will be open for business on the weekend of 14-15 April, ranging from 40-60km and designed to suit different skillsets, plus a dedicated beginners’ loop. Camping is available on site with gates opening Friday, 13 April at 4pm. Loops open at 8.30am on the Saturday and Sunday and close at 3pm so the sweeps can get in and clear up the mess.

Entry gives you the chance to win one of two new KTMs, with first prize being a KTM 500EXC-F, second a KTM 300XC and third a $500 gift voucher for Canberra Motorcycle Centre.
