looking to find a route from Syd cbd to French's forest

Never done downhill biking before just finished building my rig and now I'm looking to tear it up.

I live in the city in centennial park area and I would love to know how to get there without a car because my bike does not fit lol

Also do I need to buy gear like armour and such? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Keen to do the The Oaks so we meet at Glenbrook.

The pace will be "medium social" - This will mean several short stops will happen at the creeks, KOMs and the helipad, though besides that I want us to be able to move along at a body warming pace, so it'd be preferable to ride with people with a established degree of fitness.

Hi, I am keen to do a 3-4h training ride early Sunday morning. It has been a long time that I have organised a ride and I have never been up in the Blue Mountains. So it'll be a bit of an Adventure ride Smiling. I got GPS so we will always know where exactly we are lost!

If you want to join, I am more than happy to take any suggestions on what exactly the ride should be. I am on a hardtail and semi-fit.

Cheers, Volker

Newbie: looking for a ride

Joined this site today after meeting briefly a cyclist named Giles aka 'Hat Hill' whilst I was on an outing collecting kindling.

I have a bike that is basic, and not much used. I have ridden the Oaks trail once, over an easy 3 hours.

I am looking for other people of similar experience - next to none - (or those very patient and willing to teach some skills about riding off road).

I live in Wentworth Falls at present and would rather do some local rides ie Blue Mountains of no more than 2-3 hours duration, with an easy grade.

Cheers,
David
