I'm staying in Oberon for the weekend in just over a months time and was going to take the bike.
What trails are there in the area?

you can do the Kanangra classic course?

not a lot of technical riding but it is an amazing piece of Australia.

Sounds great, do you have gps trace of it?

It's really pretty out there, was my first mtb race, though doing the 50km run the day before didn't help.

Here is a really good map of the course.

Sounds more and more interesting but unfortunately no link attached, Gareth

There are a lot of options. Mt Low, There was some stuff on Bindo but I'm not sure if it got logged. Hapton, Jenolan state forest. 6 foot track from black range looping out the lowther fire trail/// Massive area to explore

Talk the the guys from the van park, they are keen riders

Thanks for the heads up Flynny, I'll have a couple of newbies with me so if there's some singletrack even if short would be good to keep their interest.

Isn't Rydal just around the corner?

Rydal isn't that far away 15-20 min mt York, lithgow and bathurst about the same maybe a little further
Rydal is perfect for beginners 12km of single track with lots of short cut options and you're never more than a short cruz down the middle fire trail from the car

That sounds perfect, I'll let you know how I get on.

Thanks, everyone
