Can't you just park at the info center/national park office for free?
I've been meaning to organise a group ride for ages but keep having things get in the way. We can't have these other clowns all over the country organising all these meets and have us dip out now can we ?
So, how about a group ride on Sunday the 15th of July ? I'm fairly easy though if everyone would rather do it saturday though.
South East Sydney with riding on bitumen and some light offroading on gravel.
We'll meet at the Loftus cycle track and do some laps there if people are keen - maybe have a race
In the middle of the loop there's also a tight twisty BMX track that's a fun few minutes of riding. Then we could head across the road into the royal national park where we can ride as long and as far as you like on the fire trails there. It's gravel but most of the surface isn't very rough and even a $100 kmart hard tail will do OK. If everyone has a decent capacity battery that can do over 30km we could go right along lady carrington drive which is a nice ride, otherwise we'll stick to the shorter tracks.
Technically none of it is on the road so those with all ebikes can attend, from 200w bafang commercial electric bikes to modded high power stealth bombers and home made creations.
Lunch can be a picnic/BBQ at Audley and if you don't want to BYO we could all chuck in and I'll organise snags and rolls etc.
It's the middle of national park so there's not much in the way of power around for recharging but I eye-spied a pumping station with a 3 phase outlet so I'm going to go measure that with my multimetre and if it has juice on it we can use that to recharge
There's plenty of parking at Loftus cycle track if you want to drive your bike there, and is just opposite Loftus train station if you want to get the train (and 2 minutes ride from Sutherland where all train on the Bondi-Cronulla / south coast line ) You can drive to the national park if you want but you'll need to pay for a parking pass if you enter the park and it's only a few minutes down the road so range shouldn't be tooo much of an issue.
This is the starting point and roughly where we'll have lunch, but it's the driving route along the road where as we'll loop around through the fire trails.
