Pomona to Lake MacDonald Ride Summary 17/10/2016

Meeting up bright and early along Reserve St, Pomona, we set about prepping our bikes, catching up on what riding people have been doing in the past week, and welcoming Kelly-Anne and Lucy who tagged along for the ride.

At just past 7am we headed out along the railway before ducking under the tracks and heading into the Yurol forest. Heading north along the various forestry access roads we hopped across Yurol Forest Drive and snaked our way onto Kidd Road before jumping on and off Ringtail Creek Road, along Forest Acres Drive and then riding the single tracks north of Lake MacDonald.

Stopping off at Cod Park for a bit of rest and a photo op. The lake was looking pristine in the bright mid morning sun.

Continuing on along ‘Trail 4’ and Hamilton Road to Kennedys Road then back to Pomona through the Yurol Forest.

Finishing our ride at the Trail 518 cafe in Pomona and taking in a few coffees while talking about the great trail networks both locally and overseas. The 36km ride wasn’t enough for Kelly-Anne and Lucy so they set out along tail 5 to Cooran to do a bit of exploring within the beautiful Tuchekoi National Park that surrounds Mt Cooroora.

Thanks goes to Terry for leading the ride and picking a great route.
