Wind it up down the Goat Track & plough headfirst into a wombat hole... scare the hell out of yourself as well as the wombats. Maybe a leisurely ride through the Red Gums, whistle down Black pine Alley, bust your butt at Banshee Pass, scatter the wallabies on Piccaninny Ridge, perhaps a thrill on Stringybark Hill? Whatever your style, its one hell of a ride.
THE COURSE is 90% singletrack... smooth & flowing with rugged ridges, thick forest, shheep paddocks, gullies, smooth firetrail, grassland & more. Most likely there'll be kangaroos, goats, wallabies, wombats, feral pigs, goannas, banshees & possibly an idiot in a white ute... all to be avoided if possible. The track is 100% rideable for the average rider, not too intimidating or extreme... but don't worry, you'll know you've done it
