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

3 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
If it has rained on this trail today, I won't be there.
Ride Database Entry: 
Ourimbah State Forest
Meeting Point: 

Enter via Red Hill Rd, Ourimbah State Forest. On your right will be 'TreeTops' for the kids and it's large-ish carpark. Carry on past there and the first small clearing which is were parking used to be, and is where the 'Browns' single track turns (you might see riders on your left here).

Parking and official trail head is now designated a further 350m or so up the road where a there is a larger area. There's a CCOMTB sign here by the trail entrance (on the left as you drive up). Park up nose to curb or as directed.

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

Social and fun is the theme, however this is not for beginners. I hope to do 3 laps, depending on the timing because i need to back in Sydney by lunch time.
For anyone who has not ridden there, its a great loop through the state forrest that is usually around 12kms or so depending on the condition. Majority is single track, it has some hills of course but not too nasty and some excellent decents. Its not very techical and there are some chicken runs around the harder stuff.
We can stop at the cars after each lap to get some food or drink for the next lap.
There is a car park at the top of the first hill where i have met people and parked before, but now there are signs directing riders to the next car park which is up the second hill. This will be the best meeting spot. I will be in a VW or some sort, but not sure which type yet, should be able to confirm later in the week.
I have put 7.50am so we are ready to ride at 8am.

I think they may have a XC race round scheduled for that day...

Maybe schedule a trip to Awaba 20mins further up the highway?
