Heading to Wollombi this weekend... Does anyone know if the Wollombi Wild Ride 60km route passes through any private property?

Anyone got a Strava link by any chance?

Cheers, Andy

Recording Routes EGDE 500

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

I have an Garmin Edge 500 and I was curious if it is possible to record route that I have rode, for example if I did a circuit at Forsyth Mills can the Edge record this route and then could I use the “Course” function to use this information for navigation?

Am help on this would be great. I understand you can plot routes on various web-based packages and then export them as TCX file which can be loaded on to the device. I find this a struggle with trails though as they are typically obscured by trees or it is near impossible to resolve the track.

Thanks

Steve.
