A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Warakata Ride

When: 
Sunday, 29 July, 2012 - 09:00

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

Meeting Point: 

In the parking lot outside, coffee before and beer after if you fancy it!

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

Some really cool technical trails, most of the riding is on Motorbike trails, but I have found some sneaky loops that are a bit tight for dirt bikes so not rutted out. Mostly undulating but we can put a couple big climbs and rewarding descents in depending on your level or desires.... Pretty smooth with a bit of mud here and there. Can make it as long or short as we all decide.

I live 2 min away and know the trails pretty well, so no point riding if it is raining as it turns into grinding paste to ruin your bike.

Seeya sunday!

Some more techy sections... a couple of rocky roll-offs leading into a hairpin bend.

A good downhill track in Sydney?

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

Hey guys

Just want to know if there are any good downhill tracks in Sydney (not private tracks)?

I've been riding Oxford Falls heaps but I would like to ride something more like the Awaba or Ourimbah tracks.

A track with technical areas but also just flowy and jump sections would be great.

Tracks that would be good enough for state series are the ones im interested in.

Greater Sydney area only

Cheers

A variety of tracks with a mix of firetrail and technical single track. Currently a bit of a maze which allows for creating your own loop.

Also includes a legal DH Track.

Time off over xmas

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

I've got some time off over Christmas; I've only ever really ridden manly dam, red hill and Ourimbah. What trails should I try out close to home that is decent? single track or technical preferred.

Suggested downhill explore ride?

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

With the racing for my year now finished until the Mont early next year, I am free to get back to some more fun riding.

As promised to some off site, I am keen to drive down to the Wollongong area and check out the technical and downhill trails there. I have a rough idea of places I want to go to, so thank goodness for Google Maps and YouTube. Laughing out loud But of course, I am keen for the help of a tour barbie that may know the best places.

Does anyone want to come along? What is your day preference?

Saturday 13th
Saturday 20th

Am keen to hear from you! Smiling

Craig's DIY Lights

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

Here are the sneak pics of my new lights that are in practical completion and very very close to a test ride. Well they are in the lighting section in the gallery once moderated.

There are so many new parts and construction ideas that the final completion tends to drag on.

I know I know, incorporate the fixes into second set.

I will give details of the parts and build process in later posts.

St Helena

At a Glance

St Helena Gallery

A technical single trail that complements the Oaks in the Blue Mountains. This trail is either an out and back, about 8km each way. Or an out leg towards a cliff escarpment with an extremely technical descent that is hike-a-bike only (eg. you have to carry your bike down and out the other side), about 20km in total.
