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.

Ride Database Entry: 
Rydal
Meeting Point: 

Rydal Showground. Top of Market St

From the highway come into Rydal, cross the train tracks and take a left before the Pub (Showground signposted.)

Trails leads out either side of the show ground to the north

Not an official dig day as such as neither Phil or myself can get there this weekend but there is plenty to do if you have some time over the weekend.

The whole trail needs a rake. If everyone could pick a section and just rake off the sticks and leaf litter and sand out of corners it would greatly help.

The smaller branches that have begun to over grow the tail in some spots (regular riders will know where you get whipped in face or across arms) can be trimmed back. also think about sticks and thing to the side of the trail that may be in over taking spots.

Phil is doing some trail maintenance tomorrow (Saturday 10th) and if you can lend a hand it will be greatly appreciated.

Basic things such as raking the trail and trimming branches to get it ready for the up coming Sheep Stations race.

Be aware that back burning is taking place in the far Northern reaches of the forest today so we will need to stay out of that section (basically end of Diggs out to highway) until given the all clear but the rest of the trail needs a good clean up.

Once given the all clear from forest NSW we will need all hands on deck to fix up the burnt section.

OK so at the AGM there was a bit of talk about maintenance days and how hard it's been to coordinated weekends.

Friday afternoons were suggested as a better alternative as some have RDOs, some have early knock offs and, well it just doesn't interfere with weekend family time.
