Here are confirmed details for a club ride at Herbert Forest with
the North Otago club to check out there new single track, next
Sunday 14th September.
Herbert Forest, just south of Herbert. Travelling south through
Herbert, and after exiting the township take the first road on the
right (approx 2.8km from the centre of Herbert). Turn right again
onto Break Neck Road and there is a bit of an open area somewhere
there that is good to park. If you reach the camp ground you have
gone too far. See attached or map.
We will bike along Break Neck Road, past the camp ground as a nice

The route will take us up South Ridge/Middle Ridge Rd to the
intersection with Mt Misery Rd. From here it is single track all
the way back down. We have options as to whether we check out the
DH course and add a few loops in, or bomb the single track all the
way and do another loop. Approx 4km with 350m climbing to get to
the top of the single track.
Ride time is approximately 1.25 hrs per full loop, so total time
depends on how much you want to do.
As always when in the outdoors, carry a rain coat and warm clothing.
Make sure you have plenty of water and some real food to chew on.
See you there!
