    I've been up diggers track etc recently..on the dirt bike..still quite wet north of the creek crossings, lots of big holes but you can get by easy enough, still, I'd skip that tho. Anblers is amazing and a little challenging north of the creek but pretty sure still closed. Chettle road is like a racing circuit..was a bit slippery but it will probably be dry by the time you guys ride it. I've got an awesome circuit up towards Bendigo and back.. Mostly unsealed but easy if anyone wants to take that..happy to lead or share GPX.. sharing trails, NOT hijacking thread lol

    Highly recommend you get to Blackwood from Comadai fire shed, then blue gum track..then left to O'Briens xing...really nice and easy ride..can do it fully laden no worries.

    Tracey, Gary and myself will take shelter in the bunk house and myself and Gary will be led by a KTM on the Saturday. What could possibly go wrong.
    Looking forward to the weekend.

    Cheers Peter

    You might have a couple of Husky Terra riders joining you (Chris and I). We plan on riding up from Melbourne on Saturday morning via dirt roads starting from around Anakie. What time are you kicking off and where can we find you?

    Good stuff, we are planning on a ride through the Wombat state forest, leaving fairly early I would imagine and we will be meeting at the Blackwood Pub. There are still a few beds left in the house at $25 each with all the mod cons.

    Our bikes are still on the water, but we are thinking of coming in the ute and camping anyway - or will we just be frustrated at not being able to ride? Having a KTM recovery vehicle on site might useful though.... decisions, decisions....

    I will be riding up on the Friday on my own as the others will be following filthy dirt. Not going to the ride day on the Saturday either, so may go shopping at Daylesford. :-)

    We'll be there late Sat afternoon, coming down from Chiltern where we'll be Fri night. See you all at the Pub presumably.

    :clapBorrowed a couple of Sub-continental bikes, so we will day-trip on the Saturday ... BUT I've convinced a mate who has a DR to come along, so we can sneak in under his dust-cloud...:-)

    Hello all, here is the deal so far. I will NOT be there Friday night due to other commitments and will be there early Saturday morning. The KTM led ride will commence approximately 11am from the Blackwood pub. Probably about 3 or 4 hours or so then back to the pub. There are still some beds left at the house. See you all there.
