Riders - Rob, Dave

I got the idea for this ride from the excellent Trailflix site. This page has plenty of information on the ride - location, notes, maps etc plus a well produced video.

Rob fixing a tyre - at the start near the water reservoir.

The GPS plot of the ride. We started at the green triangles. After getting off the road - the ride goes down a steep technical section to a creek. Then there is a series of loops (with many variations) - featuring some nice sections of singletrack.

This page has the Google Map plot of the ride and is zoomable.

Above - At the start we followed the main singletrack - and it took us back to Hansens Rd. The proper route turns off to the left a short distance along.

Above - the first loops. Many other trails branched off along each of these and a lot of good riding could be had.

Above - Rob at the gate which is at the top of the second loop - see previous image - the bottom right hand very sharp bend. The photo is taken a few metres into the singletrack

Above - We got a bit lost on the third up and down section - some of the trails were indistinct. The notes indicate we should have got on the road (Peters Meadows) lwer down the hill (more to the left)

Above - The Kentlyn loop - is all fast fire trail above the Georges River.

After this loop - its a quick ride back to the car along normal roads.
