RIDE INFORMATION

The course will travel through the volcanic remains of the Warrumbungle Mountains and national park roads, private farming country and weaving through the hills and cropping country out on the flats.

We have removed old tracks that once sent a shiver down rider’s backs, such as paddy’s rock, Ned’s mountain, heartbreak just to name a few that we now ride past. Tooraweenah’s ride has gorgeous views around every bend and postcard perfect scenery to ride through.
