29/05/2016 – Pomona-Cooran Ride Summary

Hey there ‘rangers,

14 of us showed up to Pomona at 7am and it was pretty cold so I’m thinking we switch over to 7.30am start times during these cooler months, so keep an eye out for the update.

We followed our ride leaders Terry and Al to Cooran and beyond. Despite the cold weather we warmed up real good with a prompt hill climb and then a few more afterwards just to make sure. The loose rocky climb up from Ferguson road was particularly good to get the heart thumping.


Phoenix trail is looking good

Phoenix trail is looking good

Trail care went well on Saturday afternoon with the top part of Phoenix track being snazzed up and the Roo Valley/Meadows link track from last week being finished off.

I think Phoenix is still being worked on this week again so its closed to let the digger do its thing and for the new features to settle in. Keep an eye on the SCTA Facebook for more details.
