Winter fun @ Ourimbah

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

North End of Red Hill Rd, Ourimbah State Forest. There's a large-ish parking area here, just off the main sealed road. There is also a smaller parking area a little further (400m or so from the road) where the trail splits - this second area is the usual meeting point. If you end up driving up a steep hill you've gone too far.

Red Hill Road, NSW @-33.275884,151.377053

Time to catch up with our friends from the central coast.

Hopefully the winter sun will be shining and a great day out can be had by all. As it's winter no point showing up too early. Remember to bring some snacks for lunch Smiling

Personally I'll be hitting the XC course for a few laps, but don't let that stop those of the DH persuasion coming to say hello and shuttle a few.

See you there!

Oh you've got to be kidding. I'm going to be down in the Southern Highlands on the 14th-16th weekend so am going to miss this ride at my local. Gawd I can never win. :\

Harry's picture

I know it's still some time away but in the interest of saving some carbon emisions and petrol anyone keen to car pool - I'm in Davidson or Frenchs Forest area?

Gilbo's picture

will also have 2 mates who are over from Perth joining us for this ride. But no DH for me this time! XC all the way.


Chester Copperpot's picture

After riding Ourimbah a few times alone I'd be much more enjoyable in a group with you guys so I'm keen to come. Happy to check out the DH but Saturdays are usually brimming with DHers. Probably stick to the XC and see how we go.

@Harry - I'm in Manly so going through your area if you want a lift up with me.

Bruce's picture

Oh come on Gilbo, I got all excited when I noticed your name on the list & thought it might be time to bust out the big bikes.
Not to worry I will most likely come a long anyway & see what this riding on dirt stuff is all about Eye-wink
Can I talk anyone else into a couple of DH runs?

Andy Bloot's picture

Pennant Hills/ Thornleigh type way
I'm coming off the mountain and it's a long way on my own
Looking forward to that roller coaster

Bruce's picture

That area works well with me Andy, I will PM you my address.

Andy Bloot's picture

shrek's picture

Im keen to join in...however neveer been to ourimbah before...or with the group before.... (shock horror)

Rob's picture

@shrek - come along, looks like a wide range of skill levels going to be there so sure you'll fit in somewhere. Don't be shy Eye-wink

Harry's picture

Thanks mate that would be better than a car each - we can sort out detail closer to time

shaz's picture

Harry's picture

I did e-mail you re Awaba for tomorrow but didn't hear back (we're still going if you want to join us)

I think its very unlikely but if I can get out next weekend as well, I'll join you for some DH action.

JohnG's picture

Can anyone offer me a lift to this ride? I live in North Manly near Bike Addiction and could meet you there.

lozza6's picture

I haven't been for aaages!

shrek's picture

Never been...and still hopefully can make it....

Buck's picture

I can't decide which bike to bring. Wonder if one lap of the XC track on a DH bike is possible? Smiling

I'm planning to start riding at 8am and ride for at least 8 hours. I need to work on my food and drink plans, got a number of changes to test out.

Say Hi as you ride by I'll say hi as I ride by Sticking out tongue

DYMTB's picture

very keen to tag along, doing a few pick ups on the way so might not make it by 10. hopefully see you out there..

Chester Copperpot's picture

Not long now! As I haven't rode with any of you yet and unless you're all wearing your NOBMOB jerseys I won't know our group(s). Can you keep and eye out for me? I'll have a green fox jersey on and riding a silver Reign 0. Looking forward to it! Thanks.

P.S. My name is Ian. Smiling

Hi Crew, I'm a newbie, relatively new to MTB'ing and new to this site. A collegue at work convinced me to ride Ourimbah tomorrow, so I'll see you all at the trail head at 10am. Look out for me on the stumpjumper 29'er and introduce yourself. Dicko.
