Husky100 Dec 13 Jervis Bay

I've just entered the Husky100 (50k version) in Jervis Bay with a couple of friends doing the 100. Any DHBC riders going? It doesn't look too technical, and not a lot of climbing, would be a good event for someone starting out MTB riding.

Stage 2 extension to Hornsby trails

There's an excellent new extension to the Hornsby Mountain Bike Trail - Stage 2, and it's fabulous. Heaps of swoopy berms, corners, switchbacks. Some of the Hornsby trail is very rocky with narrow bridges with inconveniently located rocks on entry and exit and tight switchbacks on climbs (not so app...

Am signed up for the 50 - loved it last year, but a bit sad you only get to do the river bridge in the 100!

Hornsby MTB track

Did the Hornsby trail on Sunday with AliG. Really technical and tight 4k circuit, keeps you busy the entire time with switchbacks tight turns and very crafted trail. The second half with smooth big banked berms heaps of fun. Not so keen on the first half - climbs tight corners and wooden ramps and e...

Re: Convict 100 (ex Dirtworks) @ St Albans

Perfect race - loved the 50k version, weather perfect, views amazing, all good! Definitely do this one again. 50k version hardly any technical bits at all, couple of fun descents.

Re: Convict 100 (ex Dirtworks) @ St Albans

Yep I am in too and my hubby for the 50k and a friend Chris who was in our Mont team. Went MTB riding there last weekend and it was gorgeous - hope the weather is similar. Looks like the 50k is quite simple and not so technical - no single track at all.

Re: Adventure Ride- Oaks Trail MTB 10th Mar 7.18am Central T

Great ride was had by all - complete with river crossings and soggy feet! Andersons was excellent fun - fab descents but ugly climbs out. I had to bail after that to get back but the enduro people (Alison and now mountain biker Mike) pushed on for the Oaks too. Where are the rest of the DHBC Mountai...

Re: Adventure Ride- Oaks Trail MTB 10th Mar 5.48am Central T

I am in and wrapt its now 7am start. The Oaks is a favourite, especially the fast downhill and single track at the end. There is a bit of technical stuff which you may need to walk down if you've never mountain biked before, but that's fine. Sometimes a little water crossing at the end - a potential...

Mont 24 23 & 24 March in Canberra

Hi

I'm really keen to go in the Mont 24 team of 4 or 6. Am 40 so also qualify for that category. The ride is 95% full so we would need to get onto it pretty soon.

We would be fairly relaxed about it but (especially if a team of four) expect a fairly even distribution of laps!
