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 ...

If you're starting to think doing the Oakes is ... well ... a little ordinary - do we have a doozy for youi! Glenbrook to Wentworth Falls via Woodford, and back again. 100kms of sheer mountain biking joy!

This ride is hugely satisfying, and if you have a decent level of fitness, it HAS to be on your itenerary. It's that good. (Very personal, opinions, but I'd rate Oakes up and down a 6, this longer, round trip jaunt a 9 or 10.)

AndOaks over New Years?

I'm home between Dec 31st and Jan 3rd inclusive and am hoping to ride Anderson's and Oaks during that time period. I've considered hitting St Helena as well as I haven't done that one before.
Since Knapsack Reserve is open now, the idea of riding around there is a possibility after spending a fortune at Glenbrook Cake store at the end of the huge climb at the end of the Oaks.

Any takers at the moment?

Andersons. Oaks. Someone pikes, someone chokes.

Could not believe it. "Ando" Andy, the guy who lives less than 5 minutes from the meeting point, bailing out before his dainty foot even touched his bedroom floor. Drizzling, he called it. A bit icky. And to think that some of those Sydney blokes got up at 5am for this one.

But it's early, he says. It's raining. And I've never liked that ride anyway.

Bloody cream-puff.

Turns out he wasn't the only one.

Back in the saddle ride after messy divorce with my gallbladder!
Train leaves Glenbrook at 6:53am arriving 7:40am at Wenty Falls. Ride from there to Woodford via Andersons Fire Trail and depending on how keen everyone is, continue down to Glenbrook via the Oaks and single track or bail out at Woodford.

arrived Wenty ready to ride, to find a late starting sleepyhead still getting bits out of his car.
Martinus

Hey Guys and Gals, we are doing Andersons on Saturday, not done this before can you advise the time it usually takes on average. we normally do Woodford to Glenbrook in about 50-60 mins.

Andersons and Oaks situation???

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

Does anyone have any info on how good or bad Andersons and Oaks are after all this rain? I’m thinking of doing that this Saturday morning for a "training" ride.

Cheers,

Leo.
