A fun day of mountain biking near Sydney
It’s important to remember that you should always bike according to your experience. One trail that’s ideal both for beginners and those more experienced is The Oaks Fire Trail. It’s about 28 kilometres from the Woodford commuter car park (which means you can just take the train back to your car when you reach the other end), it’s a medium grade trail that takes about 3-5 hours to ride. It’s bit longer if you stop for a bite of lunch along the way or some sightseeing, but that’s what makes it so enjoyable. You don’t have to be super fit to do the Oak Fire Trail, just average.
You’ll climb a bit in the first part of the ride, once you get to the halfway point, it’s an enjoyable downhill ride the rest of the way. Make sure you stop now and then, however, to take in the view. It’s gorgeous, and on a really clear day, you can see Sydney’s CBD.
Mobile reception varies along the trail, but you can still use your phone to take some great pictures. And you’ll need about two litres of water each for the ride. Fun can make you thirsty!
