This will be a fully self-supported weekend. That means you need to carry all the equipment and nutrition you need for the rides and runs.

These experiences provide an opportunity to get to know your fellow MX Endurance members and put in some serious training alongside other motivated athletes. It will not be an excuse to hunt for Strava segments or to try and show off how high your FTP is.

Newcastle is a short drive from Sydney and has a range of accommodation options available. We encourage you to share accommodation with other MX members and come ready to test yourself in a safe and fun training environment.

We will start with some talks around basic bunch etiquette to make sure everyone is comfortable riding with other people.

We will also be giving away some prizes over the weekend and will aim to get some samples from some of our product partners.

The cost for this weekend is $250USD including a 12 month MX Social membership. Existing MX members save $100 when signing up and can access the code by contacting
