Up local MTB park trails here in Blenheim.

2 loops of Gully Track (Goats Head Soup) ..pinned it first time, went pear shaped for second run..took scenic route over the bars..landed (sort of) on my feet which was nice..no injuries.

Then rode up around the new eastern tracks the PD boys a putting in (good on ya justice dept)...pretty good trails but a bit short.

Then final run down Goats Head Soup(3rd time lucky) ..Helmet lights on now...got half way down and headed across to the west side , where MTB club are cutting in trails over that side...doddled round back into Goats Head,down and out ....home for late dinner..

:) :)

After work yesterday I headed up Wrights hill, down deliverance, over to makara for a lower loop... The trails were nice and dry for a change, although there were a heap of braking bumps that weren't there last week.

I did notice a small alteration to Starfish though - as you come out of the trees and head south accross the hill overlooking the carpark, there is a fast right hander. Unfortunately, someone (presumably who doesn't have much trailbuilding knowledge??) has made a nice ditch about 1 foot deep on the inside of the corner, to make people take it wider. Unfortunately I didn't see this until I was on it (Speed + nightriding) and very nearly had a spill.

If I make it to the swigg track building on sunday I will commandeer a grubber and re-alter the corner to how it has been for the last few years :)
