Hi all,
Ed and the gang from NSWR are doing a ride to Jenolan caves on the 23rd. I am going to join ed on the ride and thought maybe some of you may want to come along as well.
I don't know the road they are taking but their rides are always well organised and I'm sure will be fun.
Anyone interested say so and will organise a meeting point somewhere Basketball

Update re Route / timings etc:

The Jenolan Caves loop.

Ride Route



It might be a bit of a gamble weather wise, but you gotta say it's been a very mild winter. This is one of my favourites. All the rides over the last couple of months have been twisties, blind corners, rock face on one side armco on the other. It's time for big open road sweepers lefts, rights, uphill, downhill, countryside that you can actually see.

For those that don't know these roads, trust me, they crap all over the Putty Road and Kangaroo Valley roads.

Date - Sunday 23rd August 2009
Meeting Point - McDonalds McGraths Hill
Meeting time - 9:00
Departure Time - 9:30


Route:

After a 9:30 start at McGraths Hill we will follow the Bells Line of Road, turning left at the Darling Causeway. After reaching the Great Western Highway we turn right, the left at Jenolan Caves Road, Duckmaloi Road to Oberon for lunch at the Royal Hotel

After lunch we will head to Jenolan Caves on Edith Road, back onto Jenolan Caves Road to the caves, up the other side and back on to Duckmaloi Road. This completes the loop. Then back home the same way or Great Western Highway, what ever pleases you.

Please have a full tank of fuel when you arrive at the start point.

Ed at this stage I'm in.
However, since I live in the mountains I will meet you guys at the corner of the Jenolan Caves turn off, just after the 90klm speed camera!
If your leaving Macca's at McGraths Hills at 9:30am, then I will be at the turn off at 10:30am!
See you all then

We it was another well organised ride to Janolen today, started a Maccs, up bells line and on to Oberon for lunch. Don't know what happened at lunch but about 10ks down the road we had 3 come off. A Harley lost it on the gravel, next bike slowed to avoid and an R1 smashed into him.
It seems the guy on the Harley was in a bad way and air lifted I believe, both the other boys are fine but the R1 written off.
All in all another good ride with the guys from NSWR. Special thanks to Ed for being back marker I know Andy really appreciated it cheers
Wish all those hurt a speedy recovery.
