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

3 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Ride Database Entry: 
Kinross State Forest
Meeting Point: 

The city of Orange is around 4 hrs from Sydney and 3 hrs from Canberra. Kinross State Forest is situated on the northeast edge of town, a 10 minute drive or 20 minute ride from the Orange town centre.

Meet at the Bulgas Road carpark, Western edge of the forest.

Drive out from Orange on the Ophir Rd, before you reach the rubbish tip, turn right onto Bulgas Rd. Follow this about 2km to the forest (the road turns to gravel).

Note that the 'Directions there' google maps link below may not give the best route/destination. It seems that google maps ignores Bulgas Rd when selecting a route and gives the next closest spot. The 'Meeting point' link should be correct.

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

We want to clear the forest of some of the rubbish that has been dumped ready for the STM race. Any help would be muchly appreciated.

We will be collecting rubbish from various places around the forest and taking it to the car park to place in a skip that forestry is hopefully providing for us. (If a skip is not forthcoming then we will probably be taking it to the tip ourselves).

What to bring:
- ute/trailer if you have one
- muscles
- gloves
- sturdy protective boots
- good protective shirt/pants
- hat/sunscreen etc
- utes/trailers if possible
- sturdy bags if you have some for the small stuff (I'll bring some old chook food bags)
- rakes can sometimes be useful
- lots of energy
- a bike if you are keen for a ride after

Have a think about where you have seen rubbish around the forest that we need to collect so we don't have to waste time searching for it.

Thanks all for the help yesterday. I think we made a good impact in the forest, especially around the STM loop for next weekend.

At my guess we had about 20 people helping which is great.

See you all this weekend!
