I can't make the September date this year, but do get out to Mudgee from time to time and was wondering if this track was open for riding other than for this event?

If it is, how do you find it?

Would make a good road trip week with the Back Yamma on the weekend before and a stop and Orange on the way in between!! Bit of fun to be had in the hills around Mudgee as well.

Sorry Lach, unfortunately, it's one day only as it's on private land with access through more private land...pity. I guess I'm lucky to have the use of it at all. Regards Kev
