As the sun keeps shining the chance of going bush keeps getting better. Radar looks clear - fat tyres and fire trails it is 2thumbsup gears are optional.

Would love to join you Neil but am nursing a head cold so that it goes away quickly. Hope to be back into it next week.

Get well soon Dave - Dr Wheels prescribes getting on your bike ASAP Smile

Lets see who turns up tonight and make a call then. The firetrails are still really soft and SLOW to ride on, the gullies are holding lovely soft deep silt which makes it interesting to cross at speed.

I'm fine either way, but the city lights ride sounds like a pretty cool idea - one condition though i would say - no roadies hey!!!09chuckles

LOL - have your new Mankey - will leave it at home in case I spill my skinny latte with sugar free vanilla and a twist of lemon on it.

What a great night ride last night, legs are sore today for sure. 43k's round trip to Southbank and back with a solid pace. 4.5 riders in total with young Lauren on back of tandem with dad Chris doing all the hardwork - great effort and am sure she slept like a log last night. A great wet weather ride, and one for the near future again with a few additional riders in tow. Don't worry, the concrete's not the 'dark side' and well all be back in bush soon. Thanks guys (and girl)

Thoroughly enjoyed last night. Lauren was getting a bit tired towards the end, but still peddling like a trooper. Yeah, she did sleep well last night - just waking up. Will see how she is in a bit. Was good to get a bit of a ride without doing mud runs and water crossings for a change.

Good to go tonight - only heavy r**n will change that. Crazy 24hr riders welcome to come for a spin to get a few more night time training hours in.

Meet at the outside carparks at Underwood Park (just before the turn right into the sports grounds). Roll off at 7pm, back a little after 9.

Will be great to finally hit the trails again.

Absolutely fantastic ride. 7 in all.. More nice new bikes than a supercheap store...


We did miss you Rich, but maybe next week will finish the pineapple ride for you.. haha.. hope you're all fixed and allowed a leave pass again.

Neil.. thanks for the manky.. We might frame them I think.. Keep the change and buy the mrs a really cheap bottle of wine as bribe to let you go again.. haha.

Cheers

Anyone up for a spin tonight? Just got back from Fraser Is, so not too sure if too wet from last night? XC run anyone?
