Welly Six Pack Ride - Sun 4 Sept

Postby DaveAldred on Tue 16/Aug/11 3:03pm

Attention Nutsacks

Six great Wellington Peaks, Six lagers in your pack. Lots of lulz.

Sifty, social mtb ride on Sunday 4th September.

Meeting at the Evan's Bay Wind Needle at 10am.

Miramar for Mt Crawford, pump track lulz and a lager.
Mt Vic for steep roots, city views, and a lager.
Mt Albert for views across the Straight, maybe 4X lulz and a lager.
Hawkins Hill for no lulz as it involves riding the Tip Track or maybe up Long Gully... and a lager.
Wrights Hill for a WW2 bunker lager to lube us up for Deliverance.
Makara Peak for the quintessential Wellington peak experience, and a lager.

Regular trail builders in attendance will have their beers covered by Bushlove. Email me with your preferred lager brand (which comes in cans) and it will be at the Wind Needle for you ;o)

Open to everyone. Moar the merrier. If you only feel up to certain peaks or even just one, bring the appropriate number of lagers and stay in touch on the mobile to arrange collection on route.

If drinking lager and mtbing doesn't fit your profile you can always bring alternative beverages or low alcohol lager and just do the number of press ups at the summits pre-determined by the real men in attendance.

Will consider a back up date of following weekend should weather be ridiculous.

Thanks
Dave

PS - This is likely to be one of the last rides both me and Big Al Crossling get to do before we move overseas (me Brisbane, Al Vancouver) and it would be great to see some friendly faces and have a good day on the trails.

PPS - Will place this on Vorb and BLR Farcebook also as I don't have everyone's email address.

Good wit from T-Rex

"Surely there will be Lulz up to Hawkins Hill as by then we will all officially be a couple of cans short of a six pack."

His response time with that funny email was about 45sec. So Elite.

It will be with Al leaving as he did good work. I just laid down skids and almost never went trail building!

Congrats on impending Conner Jnr mate. Come down anyway for a laugh. It will give your wife something to laugh about at dinner parties in the future. With her new husband,

Yeah cheers :lol: :paranoid:
Shit out of luck on coming down that weekend unfortunately, will be down the weekend before...

I don't know if I am capable of riding six peaks currently either. Definitely not capable of drinking six beers.

Sounds lulz, but way too much climbing for me, when do youse envisage being at the Wrights hill summit/Deliverance? Beer + Rock gardens + mud seems like a good combination

Absolutely no idea. But flick me an email with mob and I'll work it out so we holler at right time for meets for anyone who fancies an outing, but not the whole shebang.

Dave,

You could have organised this wild safari shit when I was up,

Do accountants lack foresight?

Yours Sincerely,

Instead of six summits, what about six runs of Deliverance?

= 6 climbs of Salvation and zero views :crazy:

You love Deliverance - You want to marry it. Spoon it, and raise baby Deliverances

You could do six climbs of the Tip Track? It has amazing views... or so I am told

You must be mistaking me for Tony Keith - Captain of the Elite corner of the Elite group in the Most Elite class in the ESGA.

I reckon climb Long Gully after a nice coastal sift rather than Tippy. We could always climb the first few feet of Tippy, spit on it and take a leak, then continue round the coast?

Hmm what's worse 4 beers and climbing tip track or 5 beers and riding down Deliverance. :o Probably wouldn't survive either.
