Bathurst bike park

This week how about we head up to Bathurst. The Bathurst guys drive down our way each week so lets return the favour.

The Bathurst track is a lot of fun and fairly contained so you are never every far from the car park.

Lots of warning stories about getting flats from cats heads but the couple of times I've been there I haven't had an issue (touch wood). Make sure you have goop in your tyres justin case.

I want to hear caroling as we ride.

Bonus points for Christmas costumes I reckon!

Welcome to the make up Round of the 4 Seasons 3hr series.

Ah, the end of the quarter, BAS, quarterly tax, paper work... But it wasn't always so.

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?

G’Day all,

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a social ride around Winmalee and while it’s mainly fireroad, it’s still fun.

The plan is to meet at the end of Whitecross rd at 8:00am and start the loop there.

There are 2 early bail-out points but the plan is for a pretty solid 50km. The planned loop will be as follows;

• Head along Shaw’s ridge, down the Shaw’s descent and up Bee’s nest hill to the lookout.
• Back along Springwood ridge, through Todd’s sniggle then down into the Grotto (possible bail-out point).
