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

4 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
If it's raining, I won't be there.
Ride Database Entry: 
Kinross State Forest
Meeting Point: 

The city of Orange is around 4 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra. Kinross State Forest is situated on the northeast edge of town, a 10 minute drive or 20 minute ride from the Orange town centre.

Meet at the Bulgas Road carpark, Western edge of the forest.

Drive out from Orange on the Ophir Rd, before you reach the rubbish tip, turn right onto Bulgas Rd. Follow this about 2km to the forest (the road turns to gravel).

Note that the 'Directions there' google maps link below may not give the best route/destination. It seems that google maps ignores Bulgas Rd when selecting a route and gives the next closest spot. The 'Meeting point' link should be correct.

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

I need to take a trip to Orange on the weekend on family business, so thought I'd visit the renowned Kinross trails and do a couple of laps (40km?)

If anyone from northern Sydney would like to tag along I'm happy to provide a lift, although Saturday afternoon I need to spend doing some boring stuff in town (assess a house for renovations). Can leave either Friday night or early Saturday.

Heading home straight after post ride tank refill (aka lunch).

Let me know preferences so I can make motel bookings earlier rather than later by Wednesday PM.

hawkeye Kinross - a hidden gem I rocked up an hour late this morning due to a need to reschedule an appointment with the real estate agent, but that turned out well. I arrived about the same time as a bunch of guys from Parkes who know their way around. So while I didn't quite...

Were you there and have a story to tell?

No help for this weekend but I'm in Orange on 18/19th of next month if you're there then?

Where is the house you're renovating? Let me know if you need any help with contacts, a friend of mine has just reno'd a place in Prince St.

The place we're looking to freshen up is in Glenroi. Not the best area but has been an excellent rental for the last 10 years.

Could be up again in October.
