When: 
Saturday, 10 May, 2014 - 10:00

Ride Database Entry: 
Kinross State Forest
Meeting Point: 

The city of Orange is around 4 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra. Kinross State Forest is situated on the northeast edge of town, a 10 minute drive or 20 minute ride from the Orange town centre.

Meet at the Bulgas Road carpark, Western edge of the forest.

Drive out from Orange on the Ophir Rd, before you reach the rubbish tip, turn right onto Bulgas Rd. Follow this about 2km to the forest (the road turns to gravel).

Note that the 'Directions there' google maps link below may not give the best route/destination. It seems that google maps ignores Bulgas Rd when selecting a route and gives the next closest spot. The 'Meeting point' link should be correct.

Social night ride. The pace will be set by the slowest, with lots of chit chat I imagine.

You'll need lights!

If you don't have any there are many available. There are cheap ones and expensive ones. But I recommend one for helmet and one for head.

See you there.

OK we need to do a basic tidy up for the 8hr.

Unfortunately I'm way this weekend but if others could head on out and give the trail a once over that would be great.

Just needs a bit of a rake and a clean. Maye start bunting to define corners and block straightlines.

I noticed a big pile of rubbish beside the track behind the cemetery. Not sure which low life dumped it there but if we can get it cleaned up it would be good as it's not a good look right beside our track.

If you can't make this time feel free to drop out anytime you have chance.
