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

2 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.

Sign on from 9:15 until 9:45. Race start at 10am.

This will be a 2 hour xc circuit race.

There's a bit of rain about. It only started here in Orange at about 5-6pm.... Here's what Al had to say:

"Kinross 2 hr still on. Hi all. The rain seems to have stayed further north and east so far. I'd prefer to make a final call on event progressing at 8pm tonight after watching abc weather. Stay tune"

Hi all.
After pretty steady rain overnight and continuing rain as I type today,s K2hr is off. Sorry for late notice. It would have been a shame to cancel unnecessarily but the rain has hit and isn't forecast to stop.
