From SNORC.

Unfortunately, due to logistical issues, they were forced to make it coincide with the Fling weekend which is a real shame, but hopefully those "non-Flinger" can make it a great event!

Withdrawn: Giant Trance X 29er 0 - Near New Condition - Full XT - 2014 Model

Note that this is "Withdrawn" so is here for archive purposes only.

Below is a preview, click to read the full post
Price: 
2,500.00

I am selling my wife's Giant Trance X 29er 0 which was bought from Turramurra Cyclery 9 months ago (Christmas pressie) due to lack of use, lack of desire to use and general laziness.....which is being blamed on the three kids between the age of 1.5 and 8 years old. I had hoped to get her into mountain biking and onto the trails post bub number three, but am now giving up and selling the bike to spend more money on me.

The bike is a small and will fit a rider from around 162cm to 174cm tall (she is 172cm) and it fits her well.

Saturday Fling Training - Part II

Below is a preview, click to read the full post
When: 
Saturday, 3 October, 2015 - 06:45

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

Ride Database Entry:

Meeting Point: 

End of Quarry Road, Hornsby - Parking is well signposted, directing cars to park at the END of the road. If this is full, park in the Dural Street carpark.

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

A group training ride - starting with a couple of warm-up laps of OMV, then Quarry Track, Old Northern Rd to Cherrybrook, some trails and single track around Cherrybrook, then back to Pennant Hills via Stringybark Ridge, then Westleigh before returning to OMV.

As a guide, the pace will be set around the "3-hour half fling" mark. Of course even if you're not racing the Fling you're welcome!

The plan is to step up the pace a bit compared to the first training ride we did...

There are water stops along the way - I usually go with one bottle only.

To keep Sydney's most popular MTB track in its best condition, it needs a bit of TLC each month, and that will be on Saturday. Meet at the trackhead, and the tools will all be provided. A good opportunity to mix with other MTBers!

The plan is to establish a small training group for the lead-up to the Fling. As a guide, the pace will be set around the "3-hour half fling" mark, but we can accommodate slower & faster riders by splitting up on the single track loops. Of course even if you're not racing the Fling you're welcome!

Singletrack Mind Series Round 3

When: 
Sunday, 25 October, 2015 (All day)

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

Ride Database Entry: 
Nowra/Currambene State Forest
Meeting Point: 

Cnr Western and Coondoo Rd, Currambene State Forest, South Nowra.

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

The Singletrack Mind Series features three mountain bike endurance events of 7 and 4 hours duration. They will take you to three different locations in NSW, each one renowned for its flowing singletrack and fun factor.

The fast and flowy Coondoo Road trails at Nowra have featured in each of the previous five years of the Singletrack Mind Series. Hosted by the South Coast Mountainbikers, the course offers a bunch of different options for course setting, and while it’s great for the novice rider, more experienced riders love it as it's challenging to ride consistently fast.
