    This saturday might be ok. It's the only area I'm riding at the moment. The trouble with finding new tracks is I have to incorporate them into my loop.

    Next Saturday is the big one!

    Ok, I'll try and get a MTBR ride happening. Saturday- meet at 10.30?
    To be confirmed later in the week. I'd judge it to be 35km, with a possible extra loop that involes a little backtracking.

    No other takers? Come on, don't you get bored with Lysterfield?
    This ride is not all singletrack, but that makes it a good social ride.

    Hi Hud, do you know if there are any trail maps available for around St.Andrews?? I'm unable to make riding in St.Andrews for a few weeks, mtb tour of California is on the cards instead, but would be keen to hook up with a group that knows their way around up there from around mid-October onwards. Trying to work out a training loop to incorporate Kinglake to get ready for the Otways in Feb.

    J_775. I just use the Melways -and explore, I have been riding the area for years though. ORCA 1st edition may be a help to you.

    ILMP. Don't worry about your piker mates come along anyway.

    You trying to get your post count up?? Kidding.. Thanks for the info.. Chased up the Smith's Gully and Jerulsalem rides from ORCA edn1. Seems there is a lot more single track out there than what's on the maps though.

    Will do- found some more awesome tracks out there yesterday, this push the loop to around 40km I'd imagine.

    J_775, the ORCA book actually misses virtually all of the good stuff, including the Ridge road ST. It does give you some knowledge of the area though.

    Hi all,
    A mate and I are heading out to St A. this saturday meet around 9.30 at the general store. Length depends on conditions.
    Highly recommended. Nuke_powered it's not too far from Heidleberg

    Sure that will be fine. I take it your pretty fit? The ride has plenty of hills.
    The store is actually at Smiths Gully 1km or so from St A. Melways: 264 e3.
    I'll have to confirm later in the week too.

    Ok, I'm in for Sat. Guess we'll find out about fitness then.. I'm entered in the Otway caper, so have to ride some hills at some point..First hitout on the new rig too, hopefully it all stays together. Was going to get the train to Hursty and then do a warm up road ride out to the shop from there.

    Although I'm a week late - this weekend may prove to be an excellent time to do some exploring - given it's a (potential) 4 dayer. Might follow the directions throughout this thread and see what I can find out there...
