So the last couple of years we've done a bit of an adventure ride, curtsey of Glenn Partridge.

Appearently he can't make it this year but lets keep the tradition going. Instead of doing the Wolgan ride again this will be Lithgow to Capertee Valley.

Starting from Lithgow well head up over the Drifts and then along Maiyingu Marragu trail (Blackfellow hands).
There's a mad downhill run before come down to cross the wolgan road.

Across the top edge of Long swamp and another mad run down the picaresque Gardiners Gap.
