Summer

T'is the season to be jolley. A relaxed, chilled out Christmas event is called for.
And we missed the Autumn round due to bad weather so lets ride. Again!

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).

Here's some words from Scott again again:
---------------
Big thanks to everyone who came out to the track building day today (17th May) - its starting to look great! keep an eye on the CWORBC site photos, updates and a short (sick edit) soon.

Special thanks to Mark for the use of his leg rammer and Josh for his skills on the digger!

We intend to keep the momentum by having a dig every Saturday from 1pm. There's still plenty to do over the next few months so we can get the track ready for this years STM round in Orange.
------------------

Just remember bring your hats, long sleeves & pants and boots etc.

We will have a few tools but please bring a rake, mattock or shovel if you have one.

Hope to see you there on Saturday!

Hi folks,

I know it is short notice but If anyone is available this Saturday afternoon to do a little bit of track work out at the new site it would be appreciated. 1 pm Saturday.

Unfortunately last weekends dig was rained/snowed out. Apologies to anyone who turned up. 

So whats happened I hear you ask? well so far we have marked out the entire Northern paddock of the sanctuary site just under 4km to be precise. We have also had a contractor in to rough the track in and place soil in areas where we will have berms and jumps etc. A big shout out to Josh and crew at Iconic landscapes who have been doing the machine work. 

We will gradually move through the next two paddocks marking and getting the rough in completed. What we need now is to get as many hands as possible on rakes and  shovels to smooth the track and sculpt the features berms, table tops etc - the real fun fun part!

Over the next couple of months we will try and have as many days out there as possible to get the track completed. 

I know that Saturday sports are starting up now and people are pushed for time (myself included) but the committee and I would like to start this weekend. So if you are available Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours come out to the site with tools in hand. Bring your bikes as well you can pretty much ride the whole 4kms. It would be good to see how it flows to fine tune berms etc. Besides riding the track is the best way to bed it in.  

I will be out there from 1pm (even if it is raining). 

Things to bring:
tools - rake, fire rake/mcCloud tools, shovels wheel barrows, mattocks, pruners.

WH&S
Broad brimmed hat, long sleeves and legs. Closed in shoes.  Gloves are handy as well. Water bottle (snack)

Please don't assume that there are stacks of people already involved so your help is not required! So far there are a small number of people doing a lot of heavy lifting with this project, so if you can lend a hand it would be greatly appreciated.

It's time for another track build day. We've had some machines out roughing in a trail and we need to polish it up and also hopefully plant some trees.

Bring your bike to test out the track after digging!

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.

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!.

Useful things to bring:
* Broad Brimmed Hat, long sleeved shirt, long legged pants, good covered shoes
* Gloves
* Tools, including:
* Mattock
* Fire rake
* Rake
* Shovel
* Muscles
* Water

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.

This will be a 2 hour xc circuit race or perhaps a shorter 100min race with a juniors race before hand.

More details provided closer to the date.

Here's a previous 2 hour which will have lots of similar details to this.
