We will be meeting and parking cars at the Glenbrook Helipad. The Toll booth will most likely be unmanned at this time in the morning, but if it is let them know you are volunteering with the Mtb track Maintenance. You will not need to pay the entrance fee. Follow the road across the causeway and up the other side. Continue past the Euroka and Mt Portal turn off. In roughly 100m Turn Rright onto the Helipad access firetrail. Most commmonly the gate here would be closed but will be open for us on the day. Please try to be at the meeting spot before 8am so we can make the most of the day.

We have teed up a maintenance day with National Parks. It may be assisting with the current development or it may be doing some fixing up of the existing trail. This will be determined at a later date by Parks and Contractor.

This will also be a bit of a training day so the preference of those attending are volunteers who are interested in doing more future and regular maintenance days along the Oaks Single-track but all are welcome.

On the Day there will be a chance to have a good look at the development of the final 2km.

Parks will be supplying a lunch.

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Meeting Point: 

The main rd in has been dusty as all get up so in an effort to keep on the good side of the locals it might be best to come in via the showground.

From the highway come into Rydal, cross the train tracks and take a left before the Pub (Showground signposted.)

Go around the top side of the show ground and follow the road around to the left. This will take you around towards the top side of the cemetery. from there a couple of cross rd will bring you back tot he bicentennial trail and thus the car park

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

Ok so the autumn 3hr got canned due to rain and it looks like the show ground is booked solid making a reschedule unlikely.

So we thought a social exploration ride might be called for.

We're going to meet at the old car park at the trail head (not the showground) and the plan is to head out and explore route options for the Fiddy K.

Some of the trails won't have been risen for a while so expect a bit of bush bashing or hike a bike. Also expect some steep stuff.

There won't be shops or facilities so makes sure you have everything you need in terms of food, water and spares.

Lake Canobolas MTB Park - Build day #1

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.
When: 
Sunday, 23 February, 2014 - 09:00

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Lake Canobolas Mountain Bike Park
Meeting Point: 

Front gate.

Lake Canobolas Road.

The entrance gate is almost directly across from the entrance to Lake Canobolas.

Please DO NOT park on the side of the road here, if the gate is shut then park at the Lake and walk/ride across.

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

Its finally here!

We are planning on starting (completing?) the first 3km of track at the new Lake Canobolas Mountain Bike Park. So if you currently ride at Kinross and want to give something back, here is your chance. A couple of us have been busy marking out a whole section of track and now have the go ahead to start digging.

So save the date and spread the word to anyone who has two hands ie send this email on to other MTBers not on this list. I know it is on the same day of the running festival but even if you are running the Marathon you should be finished in plenty of time.

We are hoping that a the end of the day we will be able to ride a nice 3km loop, though this may be ambitious.

It would be good if you could arrive at the start because there will be a site safety induction required before you enter. But if you can't we can run you through it when you arrive. Check back here to confirm a start time, it will probably be 9am.

IMPORTANT

Because of strict WHS obligations you *must* have a broad brimmed hat and long sleeves and long pants to be able to work - Council will be enforcing this!.

Also bring some water (especially if you have just run a marathon in the morning - though surely no one except Scott will be doing that).

We are planning to have a BBQ as well on the day. More detail will be available here later.

It's usually a really fun day so save the date.
