01/05/2016 – Ewan Maddock Dam Ride Summary
Well, what a lovely day for a ride today was…NOT! But despite the drizzly, cold, foggy weather we still had 6 hardcore riders up for a pedal this morning. Well done to Kerry, Toby, Jens, Graham and the two Steves, you have all earned another “Why am I riding in this crap” badge.
We started riding at 7am and once we gave in to the fact we were going to get wet the group moved along pretty quick. I had yet another flat tyre (tubeless woes). The water and trees were actually lovely to look at – if your glasses weren’t all fogged up and you had a break from spitting out the copious amounts of mud flung up by your stupid fat bike tyres (mental note: get a big mudguard).
We went around the dam and through Dularcha then stopped for a coffee at Mooloolah. After coffee I bowed out of the ride and went back to the car along the road. The rest of the group continued back through Dularcha and then popped down to do a bit of Ferny Forest – nice work!
So thanks for the ride folks and I’ll see you next week at Parklands (if you aren’t going to the camping trip).

PS: my fat tyres aren’t really stupid
