RIDE NAME:                       Roseberg Forest Endurance Ride   

           

RIDE BASE ADDRESS:      1820 Quartpot Road, Garland NSW 2797

 

DIRECTIONS:                      Please only come in via Mid Western Highway at Lyndhurst.  The back way WILL NOT BE SIGNPOSTED. Once you go through the little town of Lyndhurst, you will travel on a skinny mostly tarred road for about 18kms. Please take care on this road as it is not the widest and people travel fast along it.  Once you reach the forest entry the road from there to ride base is about 3kms which is pretty steep in a couple of sections and there are some over hanging branches to be aware of for the bigger rigs. Ride base has good access for the bigger rigs.

 

DATE OF EVENT:               26 and 27 June 2021
