Today’s ride was 37km of new and old trails from Pomona to Lake Macdonald and back again. A big thanks to Terry for leading the ride and showing us what he has found on his explorations. There was some real standout pieces of track today. Pete and Toby also did the bonus 6km towards the end but the rest of us just wanted to get coffee by that point (or get home to watch the XC Mountain Bike World Cup at 11am) .
Terry kept us at a good pace today with fewer stops and good use of “corner-men” and a “tail-end charlie” so no one got lost or left behind and the ride was done and dusted by around 10am.
Had a few spills today with poor Di copping a nasty cut on her leg and having to get a lift back to car. Nothing too serious but still needs to get checked out and cleaned at the Hospital so we hope they get you in and out of the ER nice and quick. Thanks to Carol, Sonya, John and Nick for cutting their ride short and helping out.
Toby and Pete also tried to do some weird stationary balancing acrobatic trick but no-one told Toby first so it all ended up with Toby, Pete and Graham on the ground in a pile of bikes.
Graham is also now a member of the “plus” bike club with his new Norco Torrent with the 3″ tyres. Very nice bike! You can hang with us cool kids now and don’t listen to the non-believers, they are just jealous!!
So thanks for the ride everyone, there was some nice trails there that I look forward to riding again.
