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

2 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
If it's raining, 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). Please do not park in this car park.

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

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

Do a steady 1st lap, having fun on the berms, drop offs, etc and then do a quicker 2nd lap if anyone is still keen.

This will only be my second time round this trail and I'm keen to learn all the singletrack goodness the place has to offer.

Who's in?
scottyB, Steve 01, Antsonline, Logan,, p2tx8, Pete B, LEX (8 riders)

Hi there Pete. Weather permitting we (myself and mrs) will be coming up for a 3 or 4 lap ride.
We've got some new toys to test out I think so will be swapping on and off bikes each lap to trial new things, but will be there for some fun laps as well as probably some faster efforts. See you up there.

We'll be in a black SUV with the bikes on the back (and probably inside too).

Great, I'll keep an eye out for you.

It'd be good to ride with someone experienced, maybe I could pick up a few hints and tips!

Antsonline's picture

Happy to share any hints or tips.

The first one - you only need the big ring for Ourimbah. Eye-wink

See you down there.

shouldn't fathers day be when dad gets to do his thing? Eye-wink

Discodan's picture

But it means you have endure breakfast in bed, then father's day lunch etc. Only 10 years to go before they've left home Smiling

PS: is that a RG500 in your profile pic? Very tasty

craked's picture

1980 Rg 500 GP bike ,It's for sale at the moment in just bikes !
Ha ha , I'm teaching my youngest to drive at the moment so it won't be long now !

That's the real deal then, I'm very jealous. I've always had a soft spot for strokers (H1 500, 350LC, TZ125, RS125) but have got lazy so swapping pistons every 2 weeks wore thin and I went to 4 strokes.

Anyway, apologies for hijacking the thread. I'm sure Craked and I will catch up one day on a ride so we can talk shit about motorbikes

Ha ha ha, no worries. Sticking out tongue
