The bottom of the track is in pretty good shape after many water-laden vehicles spent time on it earlier in the week... Ranger Steve said people were riding it even while the fire was still being put out, so definitely no closure!

The southerly wind was good for me today, and another 7 seconds comes off my time (29 seconds for the season). My legs were obviously better for three rides up there last week, all in northerlies (23:30, 22:40, 21:49, with a day or two between each). I didn't feel fast at any point, but was moving OK apparently. Time to between the fenceposts at the stockyards exactly half my final time (10:34).

Out of riding commission ATM. So been running to supplement. Hope the addition of a running time to this list is legit. Presumably there are other runners here too...

I had a miserable time up there today. The wind sucked, but that wasn't the main reason for my 26:17! I had zero leg speed, and couldn't (or wouldn't) get my heartrate up. You win some, you lose some, I guess!

If the state of the Tip Track is anything to go by, Karapoti will be a quiet affair this year. No discernable "race line" that I could see. Doesn't look like it's been getting much use.

Very satisfying to take 50 seconds off our tandem PB this evening. Nice conditions, and Jonathan is getting quite fit! Our combined weight is now 137kg.

Had some weird low cloud roll in while we were climbing in the sun.

BTW, there are ripe blackberries behind the sign board at the bottom - currently in perfect condition (we only had a couple, but perhaps they helped?)

First tip track of the season in anger. 21:19, and just 11 seconds slower than my PB set two years ago just prior to a 2:40 Karapoti. Max heart rate 179 :D

I said I'd never ride up tip track again, but would be interested to see how I go up there these days, that time of mine is a while ago...


...that is if I can even get up there on my 1x10 hipster enduroswag gearing.

I've done the 1x10 up Le tip track and really missed my granny.

I was seven seconds slower than last week today, but, Khulan shaved 9.5 minutes off her previous times (which were 3 seconds apart) to knock out a 38:30. We then went down Red Rocks and home via Long Gully.

Sifter - do you wait for a strong southerly before riding tip track? Just an observation.
I've had some good rides up in gale northwesterlies: one or two corners can be tricky but others are much more fun.

BKR, just a coincidence! Definitely the best conditions for it, although today I was hauling an extra kilo of clothing up.

Thanks Colin. I'm very proud of her, and Sarah who joined us too!
