So dear readers, let us, your fellow Riotphiles, know what is on in and around the ACT this weekend by posting it in the COMMENTS.

You know you love that sense of community belonging sharing gives you 😉

Sunday: Grab a friend and your bike for the Urban Polaris – a unique seven hour mountain biking and navigation event set in and around Canberra. It also has a new little brother, the Metro – 4 hours.

Checkpoints are in interesting places often include fun events for the competitors to be involved in.

It’s a fundraiser for the Mental Health Foundation. Also, having done it several times before, I can personally assure you of it’s awesomeness.
