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.)

MTB skills trip to Canada

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

Every couple of years my coach organises a trip to Canada for XC riders who want to improve their technical skills. The idea is to ride DH bikes (can hire or buy over there) for a few weeks, travelling around to the main mtb/ski parks in Canada - Whistler, Sun Peaks, Panorama, Kicking Horse and Silver Star. This year there will also be some XC/AM riding thrown in to break up the DH riding. The trip will be from July 26th - 17th August, and we need another 4 people. So if you are keen, send me a message.
Cheers.

Newbie needs riding partners ...

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

Hey I'm just getting into MTB riding really keen, trying to ride once a weekend at least, but I need some people to ride with? I think these group rides that are posted up here might be too technical for me to start with so I may not keep up. If anyone's keen on a few MTB rides with a newbie let me know !

Keep your eyes on this one guys as it has great significance to the local MTB scene!

Hey guys,

As you would be aware, Ku-ring-gai Council has recently put some signs up the top of the trail implying that it is an approved bike track. This is however not entirely the case. It was apparently too well built, to justify the cost of destroying it so they put the signs in as a temporary measure.

Yellomundee Regional Park
Meeting Point: 

There's a car park (click for foggy picture) on Springwood Road - just down the way from Hawkesbury Heights if you're looking for a suburb name.

I posted a ride at Ourimbah without checking if there was a race on there which there is, so I thought Yellomundee might be some fun, cause i have not ridden there for a year or so. Lets hope not much rain fall between now and the weekend.
I would like to get 3 laps in (not sure of the distance at the moment). It is social, but not for beginners.
I can offer a lift for one person from around Top Ryde, Homebush area.
Bring some snacks and drinks as we can have a quick pit stop at the cars each time round if need be.

MTB Slick tyres

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

With all the rain was hanging for a ride so went to Centennial Park. I had my Nevegals on at off road pressure and got hosed by some roadies. This won't do. I managed an avg speed of 27.4kp/h over 5 laps - Roadies can get around at 35 kp/h I understand from websites but want to know has anyone got MTB Slick tyres and will it make a noticable difference to speed/rolling resistance for the price. Was thinking of going back with small block 8's I have and jack them up to 80psi and see if I can catch a Cervello or two.
Continental has a few slicks out anyone tried em - what width tyre is best?

Diamondback Rider's

Ok, who here ride's a Diamondback? Cause frankly, i just spent $700 on the Axis Disc. And yeah it's pretty good, it ride's the Manly Dam and Oxford Fall's trails pretty damn well. No it does not have knuckle box (damn), it's got front rst and carbon ceramic disc brakes. 24 speed Shimano gears. Truvativ x-flow crankset, the bottom bracket is pretty average. The seat's nice, the frames alloy. The quick release is handy, as it won't fit in my car any other way. So yeah, please post if you have a Diamondback, or for that matter if you are hopinh or planning to buy one.
