Jenolan return :idea: some nice climbing and descending. Should be around 150kms round trip from Leura.

The drop down into Megalong Valley from Blackheath, and return climb is good value. Nice bit of varied scenery too

Some mates were telling me about the "Megalong Mega Hurt", what's that all about?

Digging up an old thread here.

If Nick is reading this, what did you end up doing and was the riding safe?

I'm staying in Blackheath for a weekend coming up and looking for hilly road rides to do. Saw the megalong valley ride, will do that plus I need another longer challenge. Could end up going jenolan if it's safe enough to do.
