Is this why you're worried about mud?

If the group wants to get going earlier than that we understand, and we'll just have to meet u at Hill End.
So guys, what say you?
I can do a few things in the morning, happy to be at Maccas around 11.30. If needs be, you could always touch base via mobile on Saturday morning.

Well I'm a maybe.

It would be the KLE for me, no doubt, the Wee-Strom would be more than I can manage if things get tough

Any camping options out there, probably need to tent rather than pub/motel, the wallet is empty post Christmas

If me and the KLE are at Maccas then I'm in, if not then it means I've had to do a lesser ride.

A basic room at the Hill End Ranch is $40. Be good to see you there.

Hey rocket


There are to great camping grounds provided by national parks. One in the bush and one just on the edge of town. Both have toilets and showers and fire pits. Cost 14 or 7 to stay a night on there grounds tho if I remember right.


I'm in the same basket. If I'm there I'm there if I'm not there don't wait. Unless I things change I will post.
I will be on the tenere if I do go.

Ok ya'all,
The rough plan is;
Saturday
* Meet Richmond Macca's between 11:30-12.
*Head up Bells Line of Road to ZigZag.
*ZigZag to Lidsdale via Blackfellows hand track.
*Lidsdale to Capertee via the highway. BFH track is in quite bad condition coming down into the back of Baal Bone.
*Capertee to Sofala via Turon gates (too many gates)
*Sofala to Hill End.

Sunday
*Hill End to Bathurst via the Bridle Track.
Bathurst back home. Any suggestions for this section are welcome. I'm thinking we're all going to be buggered by then hence the highway route back home.
I'm open to suggestions for alterations.

Isn't the bridle track closed? Or are you only doing part of it. Another great way is via long Dixsons point road

Last year a number of us did a similar ride, see thread:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=754925

Included in that thread is the below quote and map (option 1) that shows a more interesting way of getting from Blackfellows Hand Trail at Wolgen Road to Capertee, ie through the Wolgan State Forest. You pop out onto the Castlereagh Highway about 10kms south of Capertee.

There is one water crossing a few minutes after turning off Wolgan Road that may be a little difficult for newcomers though. One of the GS's got wedged in a rut there & needed to be manhandled out (refer Harris 1200's video on page 12 of thread, reproduced below, around the 2 minute mark), but no problem if you have a few helpers & it adds to the fun.

Anyway, it's another option for you to consider.

Sorry, but I can't make this one.

It's technically been closed for ages but many have still ridden it anyway, including the group last year that I mentioned above. Apparently it's still quite rideable on a bike and you simply ride around the landslide, unless something has changed very recently.

Hopefully all the rain last weekend didn't damage it further.
