100 - 150km Jindabyne area loop

Postby lewd reed » Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:43 pm

Hi all.

1st time poster, have done a bit of a search but -

Planning 3 training camps over the next 12 months, and was thinking Jindabyne for one camp. Will probably do 3-4 days, doing about 5 hours a day - so 100 - 150k loops. Can anyone suggest some loops, crossing a few high passes?

Ta,
Jo

We have gone to Jindabyne last three years and it is a great place to ride from. Not that many "loops" that you make as full day outings as far as I can work out. Loops are either too long for one day or too short for a full day. Tends to be more "out and back" sort of rides. "bikley"web site seems to be up and running at the moment. Have a look there.
Charlottes Pass is a good half day out from Jindabyne as is the Dalgety Loop, do it clockwise to get the real benefit of the Beloka Hill!
A good full day out is Jindabyne to Geehi and return over Dead Horse Gap. About 160 kms and plenty climbing!

OK, cool - that would prove to be a good few days training. Any recommendations for accommodation? Don't need 5 star, just a self contained good night's sleep.

thanks for the links.

im going to do the dalgety loop this weekend.

the holiday park is good (but always booked out whenever i look at it)

if u go in summer most people negotiate.

i just booked an apartment for the weekend (self contained) and got it for 225 down from 350 (75/night). which is not too bad as the backpackers is 50 a night. (i never used to mind it until the last time when it smelt sooo bad, everyone was snoring, and the TDF was on so it was super noisy (which is fine except when youve worked 12 hours and then driven 5!)
