I want to ride the Swampy Ridge track from Swampy Summit out to Waitati again one day. It's quite a cool hour long ride along flat single track and then the ride back over Mount Cargill is kind of cool.

Folks had a big pile of dirt out the front of the new house, so I turned it into a jump.

That's cause I started back at work today.

So you finally recovered from New Year Weathy? I noticed you didn't turn up to the New Years Day ride at Forrester Park. FacePlant made it! :p

Rode up tip track a couple of times as penance for not riding yesterday even though it was my day off and the weather wasn't that bad.

Then headed along the fenceline down scout hall then goldmine.

today I took the pink bike out for a play... started off on a local trail, then up to mt vic for a couple of runs. met up with Malcy +1 at the top, and upon reaching the top for the second time found my front brake disc was slightly loose and my rear axle was wobbly...

into teh bike shop, fixed, then out to makara. Couldn't be bothered riding there, so went up salvation, down scout hall, gold mine ad around to the wind turbine then down to my house :thumbsup:

Nga, just a big pile of dirt* at the moment, but I'm getting up enough speed to justify making a proper drop off and landing :thumbsup:
