Bottle Lake (Burwood Forest) Mountain Biking

Did a gentle 17km around the mountain biking tracks in the Bottle Lake Forest Park. Our guidebook graded this 2, on its 6 level scale.

A very nice purpose built mountain biking track in a working forest (which had just got FSC accreditation). Quite easy cycling through the woods but pretty nice. Done at speed the circuit would be challenging enough. It's recently become a very popular spot for night riding - I can see why, nice tracks and no big drop-offs to worry about. Perhaps need to think about getting some lights!

Taking a quick break and enjoying the view!
