Riding up mitchells way then along towac way. Then west on gum ridge from mt towac down to the pines. Then back to mitchells way.

This is a great scenic, fun route.

Everyone is welcome who's up for the hill. Bring spares and tools and food/water.

My guess is the loop will take 3 hours. Could be less? ... we'll see.

Kinross weekend away

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

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.

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

I need to take a trip to Orange on the weekend on family business, so thought I'd visit the renowned Kinross trails and do a couple of laps (40km?)

If anyone from northern Sydney would like to tag along I'm happy to provide a lift, although Saturday afternoon I need to spend doing some boring stuff in town (assess a house for renovations). Can leave either Friday night or early Saturday.

Heading home straight after post ride tank refill (aka lunch).

Let me know preferences so I can make motel bookings earlier rather than later by Wednesday PM.

I'm doing a training ride on the Oaks this Saturday morning if anyone wants to join me. It's always more fun and more rewarding riding in a group.

I'm looking to do it in just under 3 hours so not a blistering pace but not dawdling either.

I'm firm on the start time though as I have to be back in the city before lunch.

Hopefully see you there (weather permitting).
