Ewen Maddock Dam Community Ride Summary – 07/05/2017
We had a big turn out for Sunday’s ride despite the cold, cloudy conditions. I thought I’d lead a small group over those initial steep hills and I’m not sure why I did that now. Maybe I just wanted to watch the guys on e-bikes toodling past me with their snide grins. But after this abrupt heartstarter the group rejoined and cruised through the dam at a crisp pace.
There wasn’t much water on the trails so we took a risk and took the the sneaky shortcut over Addlington Creek. The trails were only slightly damp in areas but the creek was definitely full so we had to put our gymnast hats on and tiptoe over a conveniently fallen log.
We all got to the Ferny Forest trails where most of us had a coffee and a bite to eat at the BrewHaHa coffee van. While others kept going to get some extra loops in. Ferny Forest was riding beautiful, such an amazing little gem that place.
Thanks for the ride everyone. I hope you all had fun!
