Ewen Maddock Dam Ride Summary – 01/04/2018
Got my fast wheels on!

Hey folks long time no see! With all the recent ride cancellations and work on grants and the AGM we haven’t had much time to do any write ups.

My mudguard worked well… not!

Despite the miserable conditions we had 18 dedicated riders show up to relieve the cabin fever this constant rain has caused. A big hello to our new riders Clive, Jeremy and Jens’ mate who I never got his name – sorry about that.

Due to the recent rain we decided to stay away from the Ferny Forest trails and the Skanky Swamp of Skankiness and just do our ol’ school ride through the dam, the Dularcha railway tunnel and then stop at Mooloolah for a good coffee and a fresh hot cross bun from the lovely ladies at the Mooloolah bakery.

Despite staying away from singletrack and low lying areas we still copped a lot of mud and we all probably spent most of the day cleaning our bikes. Although I swear Simon’s bike actually left cleaner than it arrived.

Thanks for the ride everyone and stay tuned for an update regarding this weekend’s ride at Parklands as it might be way too wet to ride there.
