They tend to be well maintained since the 2003 bushfires (nothing like a complete disaster to highlight poor track maintenance eh) but I haven't bee up there for yonks, so can't vouch for their condition, Gentle Annie used to be a real "hard enduro" hill climb that could be very badly chopped out. Are you a "weekends" rider ?
This one interest me! Could meet up @ Piccadilly,
then through for lunch @ Wee Jasper Tavern, whatever?

Oh yeah, if anyone is also into mountain biking, I just picked up a Specialized Rockhopper 29 incher. Stock at the moment so nothing crazy, just fire trails and easy single track.

I know, I know, but I really need to lose some weight and get the fitness up, and two wheels and dirt is always fun!

How does the above days off fit in with yours?

Hey DS...Hoping my Scott Genius will be out of Sydney customs and with me in the next week or so. Also need to get back in to shape after a few months lay-off so some easy rides would be welcome and check out a few potential trails too.

I know you will miss me but I will be on my way to the Golden Dragon Rally at Tarnagulla. Went for the first time last year and have been waiting for it to come around again. It's a hoot of a rally. I can't wait........
