The BentSpoke Kowalski Classic is a one-day showcase of the famous trail network of East Kowen Forest and Sparrow Hill. The event celebrates the achievements of local trail builders Paul Cole, Alan Anderson and the award winning Kowalski Brothers Trailworks (our trail building crew), who together have hand built over 120km of flowing trail in East Kowen (the Kow) & Sparrow Hill (the Bird). The Kowalski Classic is the ultimate single track marathon with three race distances taking in the very best trails in Sparrow Hill and East Kowen.

A quick shout out to the Bicycle Centre Phillip: http://www.bikeshed.com.au/ They've done some work for me on my mountain bike recently and I'm very happy with the results.

Might want to check them out if you're looking for, what so far seems to be, a decent mechanic on the South side of Canberra.

Ridden here every day this week, track is in good condition from Tuggeranong Wall to Kambah Pool. Lots of new water bars are in place, so be careful if you haven't ridden here for a while, some of those short downhill sections need a bit more attention now.

Do you have more information?

If you've ridden here lately please add a more recent report. This will be useful even if the condition is the same as updates expire after 30 days.

Not sure who has been up to Bright but this beautiful town probably has some of the best mountain and road biking in Australia. The Bright Brewery is sponsoring a charity event in September (www.alfred6hour.org.au) which will be hosted by the Alpine Cycling Club.

Anybody shipped a bike to WA and can recommend a freight company / courier that might take a bit of care? Looking to send a bike over for the Cape to Cape while I drive lots of dirt on the way over.....
