Super Blue Blood Moon Night Ride Summary – 31/01/2018

Super Blue Blood Moon Night Ride Summary – 31/01/2018
Here is a graphic representation of the view we could've had minus the clouds.

13 riders rocked up to Landsborough to have a night ride and hopefully catch the super moon in all it’s glory. Unfortunately the clouds had other ideas and blocked the view the whole time.

But it wasn’t all bad though – we discovered a new trail, found a dead e-bike and had beer and steak at the Landsborough pub (that’s actually a really nice place in there – super friendly staff).

The following pictures tell the story.
