A very nice day out. Tiring though - was all tucked up in bed by 9.15pm. Rather sore shoulders today. I guess I shouldn't have pushed so much on the way up from the hut. :D

Yesterday 10 of us rode up to the new R&R track and had some fun on that. Then climbed Kaka from Bob Fern road and did a run of the Broken Axe DH track.

Today six of us went to the Emano DH track and did five runs. Just because it was a Monday and the weather was so perfect!

UP the Holloway Rd track to denton park, up to the windmill and then fenceline to top of deleiverence. Then down deliverence and back up Salvation in 18:50, scout hall (slipping and sliding on the freshly dug soil), gold mine and back home

the 18:50 I was stoked with, hadn't been down deliverence in ages so wasn't at full noise. Few sketchy's when having to take hand off bars to push ma glasses back up my nose. I reckon a sub 18 is fully possible, maybe not by me.........but..................

Did Mawsons fire-break from the top of Towai down towards the bottom of the Wainui hill road, man it's steep in places, I couldn't ride it all :0 :blush:

Damn shame that it spits you out on some lovely single track that is for walkers only, it's darn hard pushing your bike along bits of track you want to ride ;)
