GoG.I.R.L. Mystery Ride summary- 16/06/18

GoG.I.R.L. Mystery Ride summary- 16/06/18

A big thank you to our local ladies Debbie, Louise and Fiona for taking us on a fun Mystery tour showcasing our beautiful Glasshouse Mountains. Seven started at Matthew Flinders Park, Beerburrum along with 3 boys on the side for the longer loop of 50km.

First we warmed up riding south past Tibro, through the forestry before climbing up to the Glasshouse Mountains lookout where we picked up some more goGIRLs who were keen for a shorter loop (or maybe were not keen on a big hill climb first up, or enjoyed an hour more in bed, I’m not sure which). Sonja had to get home early to make pizza bases from scratch, for what ever reason. After introductions, we headed north on Range Rd, up Snake Hill and rode a combination of trails on what was a perfect winters day.

Highlights were Tania and Amanda playing stuck in the mud and the gorgeous mountain views that kept us company the whole ride. We finished up with a great feed at the look-out cafe. We were reluctant to leave because the view was mesmerizing but after saying our goodbyes, we continued on our tour picking up some speed and having some more fun on the downhill Kokoda and the Luge, both aptly named.

Tania as usual picked up some gold and finally we were happy to be heading back, stopping a few times to marvel at the magnificence of the mountains. Debbie knew all the mountain’s names and their faces. She and her friends had taken their time to plan an awesome ride to best showcase them.

We really appreciated your leadership and company. It was great to ride locally on this Mystery tour with some awesome chickies. Thanks Erica, C.J. & Rene for joining us today. Hope you enjoyed your ride and we see you all again on the trails soon.

Don’t forget next weekend is Ewan Maddock Tunnel ride, this is suitable for GOGA graduates and #adoptanewbie participants. Keep Saturday 21 July free if you like fast and flowy or slow and cruisy, choose your level. This is a ride not to miss.

Cheers,

Parklands Ride Summary – 10/06/2018

Parklands Ride Summary – 10/06/2018
Ben and the phallic looking object (Ben is the one at the back).

It was awesome weather for a ride on Sunday and Parklands was drying up nicely although there were some reports of puddles on Cancer Tree and a couple puddles along the bottom of Road Rage.

We had about 20 riders so we broke into 2 groups – Nick took the fast lads off in the first group while Toby and Ben took the rest of us for a lovely jaunt through the dryer tracks – we avoided the new stuff as it’s still struggling to dry out.

We went through Rookie Road and then most of Road Rage. We then did the Gumby Loop and then returned via Old Man’s Curse and did the Cabo Creek Climb. We avoided Cancer Tree and shot down to the skills park. Some brave souls attempted the “Zig Zag of Death” (patent pending) and bravely risked their derailleurs and chain-rings to attempt the zigzagged log ride.

We went back to the carpark and a few of the group continued up HoChiHo and then returned and did Jumping Ant. Apparently it was here some extra “fun” was had with Susie toppling down the hill and trying to move a tree with her ribs and Neil going over the handlebars to use his chin to clear sticks from the trail. The good news is they are both OK – Bad news is, there is no video footage of either incident.

Hope you all had fun everyone.

Winter times have commenced – rides now start at 7.30am

Winter times have commenced – rides now start at 7.30am
Winter Hours has started!

That’s right folks – winter is here! So go buy a fat bike with the studded tyres, shove an emergency husky in your camelbak and then practice urinating while wearing 4 layers of clothes OR …you can just not be a big sooky-la-la and harden up because this isn’t Siberia!

However we do delay the ride starts by 30min due to the lack of light and the scientifically proven increase in difficulty of crawling out of bed during winter.

So this weekend’s ride at Ewan Maddock Dam is a 7.30am start but get there 15 minutes early to prepare (and pick on the e-bikes etc).
