Wollombi Wild Ride

Anybody riding it?

Anybody ridden it before?

I've entered the 45 km, and wondering what I've let myself in for.

Have done the 60 previously x2 and 30x1. This year the course is longer, i 45 and 75. There are a few climbs and a ripper descent you got to do twice on the 60, and I assume the 75 this time. Not sure how the updated course is is different. Not a lot of good MTB trails previously, mostly fire road and the sort you could take a 2wd on. There is a bit of paddock and some overgrown fire trail.

Has been a good event and improving, interesting to see what the turnout is like for this year now its part of the Real Insurance series.. Its a local day trip for me from Lake Macquarie area as opposed to a weekend overnighter. I dont think I would travel to far for this one, the trail is just not in the ball park of Highland Fling or Convict 100.

Cool!

Sounds like it won't be too taxing then. As I've only get a month to get trained for it, the route sounds about perfick.

Doing it for the first time, 45 ...am still feeling a pretty slack winter so am hoping to get some k's up before then. I have driven out there before and wondered what the trails were like...dont mind fire trails myself so should be fun.

Fun event. Zero single track, but lovely scenery and very well organised weather.

We stayed over and made a weekend of it, which was heaps of fun.

Worth doing if you just want a morning riding in the countryside, but avoid if nothing less than single track will suffice.
