Coondoo - XC

 

Located 15 minutes South of Nowra, Coondoo is the original home of SCUM Endurance races. Originally 6km in length, the course has been extended to enable events of various configurations and loop lengths (up to approximately 10km).

 

With a couple of small changes in altitude and plenty of course variation this is one of the jewels in the SCUM crown. Coondoo features on the SCUM annual XC event calendar as well as being utilised for our Endurance events. 

 

Single Speeders can choose between a 16 or 18 tooth cog.

 

Getting there:
