Wollemi overnight ride - suggestions?

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Any ideas from the brains trust for a Wollemi weekend ride??

We had in mind Putty to Dunns Swamp, however the scope seems a bit much and water perhaps unavailable on the way.

Any ideas for a loop or out-and-back, which involve an overnight camp preferably with water somewhere on the way. We have filtration/purification gear so water that needs that is OK so long as not too scungy.

Old trails would be fine, buff fireroads aren't necessary.

damage to wilderness by using sandstone gravel in a watercourse

no point filling with sandstone gravel in a watercourse!

Especially upstream of threatened vegetation community and threatened reptile species

location: Lawson Ridge fire trail.

tracks in declared wilderness

If possible I would like advocates and riders to avoid engaging with NPWS concerning riding on tracks in wilderness.

My reasoning is that in the Wilderness Act, provision was made to include "self-reliant" recreation as an objective of declared wilderness. When this was done, the intention was to exclude 4WDs, motorcycles & horses. Canoeing and cycling were not meant to be shut out, in recognition of low impact and compatibility with wilderness values.

Where to get a good Bike light

Hi Guys,

I'm planning to start ride more at night, I've read riding the Oaks after dark is popular...My question is for those that do already or have mates that do what is a good light to use/have? that will really light the way!

Rides 20km or longer

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi All,

I'm very much a Blue Mountains Rider but am getting to a point where I've done the rides I'm doing and getting bored is the wrong word for it but I'm keen to learn about some great tracks that I haven't done for a new challenge In the BM's and outside....I know there are a lot of websites listing these tracks but id love to get someones perspective of how they enjoyed or didn't enjoy the track

Anything over 25-30 km I'd love to know about

Cheers
Aaron
