** The trail has already been closed per the gardens facebook page so ride cancelled**

Was hoping to get out on the bike this weekend and was going to head out to Mt Annan on Snday morning.

I have only ever ridden it once but from memory it was quite a well sign posted/easy to follow loop.

If its raining, or has rained prior, i wont be there as i dont enjoy playing in the mud.

8am Cherrybrook morning dash

When: 
Sunday, 7 October, 2012 - 04:59

Meeting Point: 

North end of Burke St, Appin. There's a small parking area here at the trail head.

Note that the map shows Market Street connecting Appin Rd to this location but that is actually a firetrail and will not work for drivers who should take King St (next block South) and enter from there.

17km local loop. If you're coming don't forget about daylight savings time. You need to put your clock forward 1 hour tonight. The ride starts at 8am but the start time function in teh ride entry database seems to be playing up. I put in 8am start numerous times and it has a mind of its own

Help Needed: Old Man's Valley mountain bike trail plans under threat

The NIMBYs are at it again, threatening to derail well-advanced plans for mountain bike trails in Old Man's Valley in Hornsby. If they succeed, trails could be deferred for quite some time, maybe indefinitely. We saw how that works with the watering-down of the Golden Jubilee mountain bike park and the removal of the singletrack loop.

To stop that happening again, we need to show that we are are a legitimate group, that the proposal has deep support, and that these few residents' concerns are unfounded.

Early Sunday morning ride with a couple of mates.

Awesome ride - approx 30 kms with some decent climbs on the return leg. Track drains well even after rain.

See you there - the more the merrier.

Cheers, Hans

If you're starting to think doing the Oakes is ... well ... a little ordinary - do we have a doozy for youi! Glenbrook to Wentworth Falls via Woodford, and back again. 100kms of sheer mountain biking joy!

This ride is hugely satisfying, and if you have a decent level of fitness, it HAS to be on your itenerary. It's that good. (Very personal, opinions, but I'd rate Oakes up and down a 6, this longer, round trip jaunt a 9 or 10.)
