cotter 18/2

Hi Guys,

Might head out for a ride near the cotter next Sunday morning.

I'm fairly new to dirt bikes so nothing too crazy, hopefully get started by about 7:30 to ride for a few hours before the heat and get home by lunch for family duties.

Don't really know anyone who rides as I've only just started getting into it so anyone who wants to join is welcome.

Hi Matt,

I moved to Canberra in 2013 and found that rides are rarely posted on here, but once you get in with a group or two, there is plenty to do.

Remember to keep on the South-East side of Laurel Camp Rd as the water catchment rangers are getting a bit antsy. Still plenty of good riding to be had. I'm not in town next Sunday but I reckon you have good odds of finding some punters.

If it doesn't involve scotch, bikes or progressive metal then you're doing something wrong.

Thanks Guys,

I was out there last week and ran in to a few guys who were nice enough to show me around a little bit. Just have to get to know a few more people who head out now.

I've seen this section has been pretty dead latley but I'll keep posting up when I'm able to get out and hopefully get it a bit more active.

Invite is still open for anyone whos free on Sunday too.

Good to hear you got out
Make sure you have all your affairs in order, 5-0's drop pasted us yesterday as we were loading up and checked rego, licence, plates and breath tested us to. Sounds like they will be making putting a bit of effort into cleaning up the area over the coming weeks

Yea the rangers came past a few weeks ago as well. And from what Iíve heard the police are a pretty common occurrence out there.

All good tho Iím all registered, licenced etc.

Definitely not the place to be trying to sneak around unregistered.

It's been quite a few years since I've been there.

Better to simply go over to the Brindies first imo.
