The Oaks
Meeting Point: 

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.

It starts with a not so pleasant part along the highway, but soon we're cruising down an unsealed road, turning into the main track (Ando's) hitting full steam down the creek (because steam will come off the breaks when we ride through the creek!), having a nice rest, looking at the beautiful valley walls on either side of us... THAT WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE TO CLIMB UP! The challenge will be to ride the whole thing without putting a foot down.

Now for the Oaks... ups and downs until the Helipad, another rest break, and now for the great downhill... can anyone get above 60km/h?, the great single track, and the not-so-great uphill before raiding the pie shop.

See you there if you're brave!

Did this ride 12months ago when I was pretty unfit! Would like to give it another go!

Sticking out tongue

But don't have the car...

I could potentially come if you're able to give me a lift up? Because the train in peak times... with a bike... not a fan.
