April 2016: Corin Forest Bobsled

The longest bobsled/alpine slide in the southern hemisphere is located at Corin Forest, in the middle of nowhere up in the mountains outside of Canberra, and although it’s a fairly long trek out, if you love these things, this one is awesome. Trust me! I should know – I rode it five times!

Great scenery all around as you go up the hill.

It’s a long hill — and not hugely comfortable on your lower back!

Start line. Empty track ahead. No brakes!

The trick is to try and not brake at all in the turns.
