Will be riding this sunday with a canadian friend who is fairly new to mountain biking so will be taking a fairly cruisy pace except for the long down hills which are much to fun to be going slow on. we will be driving from Ranwich very early sunday morning (have room for one more if anybody wants a lift.) with the plan being to catch the glenbrook train at 0653 to woodford, may also look at having a swim when we get to the bottom before riding back up the road to the train station. the more the merrier

Hi,

As discussed previously I will be doing the Oaks this Sunday morning. Just found out that there are no trains running as well so there goes the cruisy ride up on the train!!! So i will probably go up the oaks (probably not all the way), maybe do St Helena's and then back down again.

Going for a training ride and here is the plan:

1- Leave Glenbrook station, bypass the single track on the uphill and go all the way to Woodford.
2- Ride down the Oaks to the beginning of the single track and if the legs allow, go up again till the helipad and then go back all the way to Glenbrook.

I'm not sure if this second leg will happen, but I'm willing to try anyway.

I'm going to Glenbrook by train, so I may get a little late depending on Cityrail's mood.

*** Update as of 8/10 Time has been changed by 15mins to accomodate for the Sydney train. Its almost certain that we will do St Helena's as well***

Hi Everyone,

A few of us us were chatting last night about training and preparation for the various races and things that we all have happening. This will be my last hit out before the Mont and Fling ... so may as well do a big ride.

Ok, so its a long weekend coming up and I'm going to take the opportunity to do the Oaks under lights. Rugby Saturday night so Sunday is the go, (sorry but the league doesn't rate on my radar).

Please note that the time posted is the train time so make sure you are there with plenty of time to get sorted, onto the platform and get a ticket, thats Glenbrook station for those that don't know.

I’m planning on riding The Oaks from Glenbrook Station to Woodford and back for some pain endurance training for The Fling. I’ll try to avoid stopping as much as possible, but knowing my current fitness level this does not mean much. Meeting point is the parking lot in front of Glenbrook station.

Please remember we will be catching a train at 6:52am

Hi,

I know that there is another race on on Sunday and most of your are doing this. But I'm pretty keen to ride up the oaks trail and then back down it again. Riding up makes the descent much more enjoyable! Eye-wink Ride times will probably be 2:20(ish) up and 1:20 (ish) back down again. I did this last Sunday and it was pretty cool so I will probably go again...

Launch from the Glenbrook station, ride up the firetrail to the gate at Woodford and then enjoy the descent back down again.

Well I wanted to do the Oaks before Andrew's night ride there. Also I can't do Carlgroover's Mid Mountain tour on Aug 12 as I have the City 2 Surf.

I will be catching the 9:23 train from Glenbrook up to Hazelbrook. If this is too late then I can move the start time forward.

We'll be doing some singletrack and then the Oaks.

Due to injuries and equipment malfunctions this ride is postponed. Although I'm up for a local ride in the arvo.

Hi All,

That ride diary is very full! So I'd better post this one for the diaries...

As discussed:

The aim is to hit the oaks / helipad at dusk. Therefore one lot of us will probably start the Anderson's track about a few hours beforehand and if you want to we can meet up with you at Woodford station and then do the oaks. Well get some proper times up closer to the date

Good lights are essential.
