Only ~2 minutes better than last year. I guess I really need to work on my DH skills.

Added the finishing certificate.
It shows a few seconds less then my cylemeter or the official timer counted. Oh well. Maybe the more in the past the faster I get. Must be.

Parking at bottom of the Oaks?

As you might have seen, our maps now allow for POIs (points of information) to be added and I've put in a few to try and show the way.

Was going to mark the information, toilets and car park at the bottom of the oaks. You know - by the gate on Bruce Road.

However, can anyone please tell me - do you have to pay to use this car park?

The NPWS sign I can see on street view shows parking, toilets and information. I assume there is a tap here too for water, but does anyone have any idea of where to find it? Is there also a picnic area here?

Comparing The Oaks to Six foot track

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I have never done the Six Foot Track by foot or bike but always wanted to. Now that I have managed The Oaks up and back I was wondering if I can now attempt Six Foot track as an up and back? There seems a little more vertical but the distances seem similar. Anyone got a good gpx file with altitudes so I can compare? Is there any drinking water available on the track do I need to carry everything? How much walking is there? I was planning starting at the cemetery in Megalong Valley. What do you think?

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Woodford train station (south side carpark)

Show on Google maps: Meeting point. Login or register to get directions.

An evening/night ride down the Oaks and back up by train or whatever. The train up the mountain gets in about 7.16, I will be coming down from Hazo. Sunset is about 7.45 so bring your lights! Train at the other end back up the mountain from Glenbrook is at 9.13 which should give plenty of time.

Won't be race pace at my fitness level, just a social ride

If we don't get enough interest for tomorrow night I might shift this to Saturday if people like

With a chance the sun will continue to shine Sunday, it's high time to up the training again! And this will be a great way to do it. Smiling

From Glenbrook up The Oaks, Ingars and then back via Andersons. This is an absolutely AWESOME set of trails, that make for a fantastic day's riding.

Normally, this route pretty much has everything, but missing this time will be any singletrack; I'll be giving the (short!) singletrack at the tail end of the Oaks a rest after all the recent rain!.

All up, it's a tad over 100k, which I aiming to do in under seven hours. Hmmm ...
