Mt Grey Mission 12/5/07

Postby snr_merv on Sat 12/May/07 8:53pm

CUMBC rode Mt Grey today, definitely rate the riding there, we took some crappy way up through overgrown brush, but at the top of the hill we were rewarded with tussok-y, rocky singletrack, which then proceeded to become hard out technical switchbacks through beech forest. Roots, rocks, mud, forest and steep hillside :thumbsup:

Na, brought the DH bike as well, but the ride took a LONG time and we were all pretty tired at the end :blush:

Fair enough, we just fluffed around the grom track when we went out there, then rode the 4wd down.

Did the track you guys do start from by "lake" janet or further around?

Do you know, I don't think I've ever seen Raj in shorts.

Random observation...

Don't think so, just ended up fighting our way through some shitty brushy overgrown track to the top of the hill, where we discovered we had just taken a shortcut through the middle of the big loop we were intending to ride, then chose the best looking track we could see to ride down :thumbsup:
No-one had really ridden there before and we were just bluffing our way through it :D

Yarr from Puddle Janet.
But we ended up finishing at the river crossing further around where we asked for directions last time.
The bike back to the cars was :hmmm:
Lucky Vaughan drove back to get us :thumbsup:

We didn't look.
Ya know where started right next to the cars?
It was just to the right about 5m.
Don't worry you didn't miss much.
