Nowra/Currambene State Forest
At a Glance
This entry is mainly here for reference to some events that are held in the forest.
Cnr Western and Coondoo Rd, Currambene State Forest, South Nowra.
Currambene and Nowra State forests merge together just South of Nowra and contain the usual forest road firetrails along with a number of single track trails.
There appears to be three distinct areas here.
To the West is a XC track here that also seems to be known as Coondoo or Condoo Road.
Located 15 minutes South of Nowra, Coondoo is the original home of SCUM's Endurance races. Originally 6km in length, the course was extended out to 8.5km for Rnd 3 of the 2008 BMC Working Week Series. With a couple of small changes in altitude and plenty of course variation this is one of the jewels in SCUM's crown. Another of SCUM's annual XC race calendar courses as well as being utilised for our four and six hour Endurance events. Single Speeders can choose between a 16 or 18 tooth cog.
Another circuit located more centrally in the forest. Again from scum.asn.au:
Located 20 minutes South of Nowra, Superbowl is the do it all course. Almost 6km in length, this course offers short technical sections, flat twisty blasts, some modest climbing and a wha-hoo downhill section for all those gravity minded soles. Just remember to make a conscience effort to look at the scenery as you ride by, it is simply awesome. Another of SCUM's annual XC race calendar courses as well as being utilised for our four hour Endurance events. Single Speeders can get away with an 18 or 20 tooth cog.
Further to the East. Again from scum.asn.au:
Located 25 minutes South of Nowra, just 5 minutes from Superbowl, Butterfly is our State level XC course. Approximately 5km in length, this course offers short technical sections, some short sharp climbs, followed by slightly longer climbs and a couple of short twisty downhill sections to break up the climbs. The final course used in SCUM's annual XC race calendar. Single Speeders try cross training, bring the bike with gears!
