Ride Time – The Central West – Oct long weekend.

I haven’t planned this with any great detail yet, just thought I'd post it to see whos interested. I’m rostered off from the Friday to the Monday so four days of riding :hurray:.

Meeting place will depend on who’s coming from where, but will be either Golden arches @ McGraths Hill or Broke servo/cafe.

Rough plan looks something like this, but would love to hear others suggestions

Day 1 – Friday
Head for somewhere around Peak Hill, probably camp @ somewhere ??

Day 2 – Saturday
Head for Albert, Tottenham and the central NSW Cairn at Five ways, then Nymagee and Cobar, and yes Ron there’ll be lots of dirt miles.
Stay somewhere with a shower ( and close to a cleansing ale or two) so we can wash dust off
Day 3 – Sunday
I’m thinking Cobar - Gularganbone – Coolah, but open to suggestions

Day 4 – Monday
head for home

All are welcome, whether that be for all 4 days or just for 1 or 2.

Looks good Muddy and as you know I'm all ready to go. I'm hoping it's smooth fast speed dirt :thumbup: or at worst a plod along take it easy and out of the sand kind of ride, with no mist :yesnod:

And thanks for organising the ride Muddy

:cheers2:

Well most of you know my situation, but I will try to make it.

Don, Ron and I can all plod along together back out of Muddy and Astro's dust and rock throwing escapades [or I will bring the KLR and throw rocks too, then again maybe not- that sort of distance on the KLR would see me walking like a crippled cowboy after mustering cows for a week on the trails :yikes:]

:green_lol::green_lol:

Done a google map plan yet Muddy?

I might try to plot it if I get time over the next couple of days, just for curiosity sake. :fineprint:

Sounds like a good ride.

There would be more than one Don plodding along if I went, but I don't think I can make it Muddy :furious:

Plodding along is fine by me Don, I'd rather you plod than topple trying to ride above your comfort zone.
I've never ridden some of this (Five ways to Cobar) so I have no idea what the roads (if infact they are roads :yikes: :green_lol:) are like.
Will post up some route ideas as time permits.


OH by the way I hate you to Don, I still havent got to a MotoGP yet, may next year or the year after, so many rides, so little time :headbang:

Sounds like a great ride ... I spent my younger days in that area as my father was involved in surveying power lines for the connection of electricity to those towns ... I remember the electricity being turned on at Hermidale I think it was ...

Good red dirt roads around Cobar ...

However the OWATPOF (One Who Approves The Purchase of Farkles) has her birthday on that weekend so I will be otherwise engaged ...

I'd completely forgotten about it. However, I prefer to stay at home on long weekends to avoid the heavily policed and trafficked roads.

I'm hanging too Muddy but long weekend is a no no for me, like Ron and next weekend is for yobos being V8s at Bathurst ( but I'm a race fan, Bathurst is just brilliant!!) Too many cops and wannabe's. Maybe some dirt the following weekend?
