Thanks for the gus.

Nice spin around Daisy. Super GRIPPY! Shame I busted my bar lights. Few puddles in the usuals but nothing major. No Puddles on Glider. We must be doing something right.

Cheers for the introduction to nocturnal mtb'ing, will definitely be back.

Also good to not have broken anything on my bike to break my recent streak....

I'm tempted to come down to Daisy tomorrow if I can confirm a leave pass and someone to show me around.

Are the details in the first post still right? Just before 7pm @ underwood rd ponds.

Yeah, time and place are correct, I'm 95% sure I'll be there if someone else commits, and can confirm by mid afternoon.

Trying to convince a friend to come, but he needs to source some lights first...

Hi all, who's keen for a bit of a night time xc adventure heading north out of DH tomorrow night. Will do track comfortably in under the 2 hours - a good chance to get a head start on all the excess's we get upto over Xmas. All fire road, not too hilly just an easy pace into new areas for many I am sure.

See you all at 7 @ Duck Ponds tomorrow night.

I'll defer to the wisdom of the crowd... but I know my vote is for some singletrack, not just fireroads.

Should be good to go for tonight - as for route what ever we decided i'm sure it will include plenty of single track - also fire roads at night is still plenty of fun. Might add some extra xmas lights to the bike this week.

About 10 min drive from Daisy Top. Another option meet at the 5 ways. Wife decided to go and visit family tonight and left 13yo at home, otherwise I'd carpool if you had wanted. Best to grap somebodies number if they are offering to avoid missing them.

Looks like storms for Gold Coast tonight, but should be all go for ride tonight. A 'light' shower only adds to the thrill of the night ride if the other week was anything to go by

Never done one of these night rides before but I'm thinking about coming along tonight.

I only have a front light, no rear, is that a problem? Don't want to get rear-ended by anyone!

No need for a tail light unless you're riding road to the start - promise you wont be rear ended by anyone - just hope it cools down soon!
