I still think the trails on MT york provide some of the best mountain biking in the state with a little bit of everything thrown in.

There are some steep climbs, there are some techi bits, there are some fast flowy grin from ear to ear bits.

The first little climb up to the gate on Berghoffers is a challenge but only short. From there Berghoffers (which was put in as a easier bypass for early motor vehicles) winds up gently to meet up with MT York Road.

Anyone who want to can meet us up at the top Berghoffer car park at around 6:50pm

With the cold creeping in and race numbers dwindling we're going back to social rides of a Tuesday Night. These are a great chance to get out and experience some of the other great trail we have in our area and sometimes further afield.

First stop. The Bathurst bike park.

Those who haven't ridden it, you don't know what you are missing. Fun trails, big berms and interesting obstacles.

The Bathurst crew did a great job getting the trail ready and virtually cathead free for the Evo-cities so now is the perfect time to ride it

Try again. I wont be there but have fun

Back to rydal this week

The plan is to head back out the far side then come back and complete a loop of the main trail. For those thinking it might be too far there are a couple of options

a) Join us at the start but stay on the main trail and do a lap your self
ii) meet us over at the corner of link road/ Coxs river trail and just do the far single trail.
3) start later and try and catch us out the back of the main trail on our way back

***EXTREMELY IMPORTANT***
Council and Synergy need to know in advance the number of Volunteers that will be coming. With a bigger turn out means Council and Synergy will hire more staff for the day which also means we can get more done.
