What a turn-out, with 22 at Wooroi for the first ride of the summer.
The earlier start time (trialling 6.30am for summer) didn’t seem to worry anyone, although Linden did seem a bit rough early – bad bottle apparently (could have happened to anyone!)…
John “the only dude who woo-hooo’s on the flat trails” Searston took off with the fast-ish group.
And after zig-zagging up, down and through Wooroi, he went rogue and took us over through the forest and up the Demoraliser track. Straight up the steepest hill within cooee on a fire road. And demoralise us it did, although Miles “mono” Porteous (aka The President) wasn’t fazed as he pulled off this manoeuvre at the top…
The forest out here really is beautiful and worth a visit, with a few very gnarly and steep down trails it was great fun.
Toby lead the rest of us to enjoy the great trails Wooroi offers.
Riding bloodwood proved a challenge for our newest member with a technical issue which unfortunately could not be resolved.
While some enjoyed the challenges of a daydream, a couple of us ensured Therese made it safely back to her car.
The rest of us had a bible session (see below, very exciting).
We then took off for a coffee and a chat at Doonan feeling enlightened.
