Details:

Last chance to ride the singletrack sections of the fling before the big day.

Aim is to complete some laps of the singletrack with minimal time on the fire trail.

All welcome, not just fling entrants. The tracks at Wingello are great and every rider should experience them. At least the first lap will be "no drop" and after that we will try and get some pace.

I will look to be at the old bike shoppe in Bundanoon at 08:00 for a coffeee and depart at 08:30, so anyone not familiar with the meeting point can meet there.

Surely there is somewhere in Bundanoon that sells coffee at 8am?
We can loiter out the front of the bike shop & meet up - that is once we've found coffee.

looks like Wingello has had only light falls of rain friday and sat so it is most likely OK and tomorrow is predicted to be sunny with a late shower .

been out and missed the comments.. southern highlands has missed heavy rain so although we could cop some drizzle it should be pretty good, Looks like we are meeting outside the olde bike shoppe. I will be in a blue passat see you there, cheers, Al

nice to know what were in for next week,great company, tracks in top condition and good luck to all who are doing the fling!

yeah was a good ride ,just the right amount of moisture in the ground to firm up the sandy bits and only a few small pudles, the single track sections were in great nic and flowed nicely.Steve spotted a brown snake crossing the single track, I just saw his tail as he took off into the scrub . Appart from the three dudes on motorbikes who we kept coming across (once going backwards up the single track)was a top morning ride.
Thanks to Al for posting it was a great idea . Smiling

Thanks for the ride yesterday guys. I loved the single track, pity about having to do the grind up the firetrails first though. Not sure who was more scared me or the snake - thumbs up to my elixr brakes for pulling me up before running over the snake double thumbs up for Craig not crashing into me and sending me into the snake. Next time we ride this I don't think will be as much fun or as fast! Good luck for the Fling guys.

thanks for the ride everyone, and at 48 km not a bad hit. Good to know the singletrack and get an idea of what the firetrail is like, but also just great fun. just the thing to get in the right frame of mind
