Both us rode through a lot of stinging nettle... my hands were a mess - even through full fingered gloves.
Still great ride on a great track. If three bogs were removed and the stingy plants were eradicated, the track would be legendary... but probably over ridden.

Great stuff, did the ongaonga bring a tear to your eye :satan:

how far did you get?

It is a legendary ride

Yep - my legs and arms are still stinging today :crazy:
Got right to the top (naturally), very cruisy ride. Nice weather, no one else on the track and it was completely dry save the 3 year long bogs.
Now if only those Onaonga plants could fuck off... :(

Went for a sift up Makara, post rally, to test my new 4x rig. Hit a rock with my pedal down ridgeline and got wrecked. Stupidly good fun. My knee hurts now :D

Sifted on Salvation, Deliverance, then up the peak and down ridgeline... Cleaned Deliverance, cleaned everything!!

And Chur Oli, the new back wheel is magic, makes the bike float up hills... :D

It's kinda disconcerting when you're out there on the MTB for almost three hours, and you look down at your speedo and you've only done 27km! :blush:

But (for the most part) I had fun today :) Longest and toughest race I've ever done. Especially in that hot, hot sun!

Where I have ridden in the last two weeks

Sunday 2nd December - Naseby. Rode a lot of the trails down there. Got lost a fair bit. Some cool trails.

Monday 3rd December - Old man range in Alexandra - Got a ride to about half way up, so still a fair way to climb. Freezing at the top. Awesome long down hill.

Tuesday 4th December- MTB Heaven - Very short ride, didnt really know where to go and went down a really unused trail.

Tue 4th Dec - Headed up Skyline in Queenstown. Come down Vertigo. Awesome trail, so flowy. :love:

Wed 5th Dec - Fernhill in Queenstown. Pretty cool trail. Should have headed down the beach forest side but went down to Mini-dream. Had a look around there, then went down Wynyard downhill track and back to town.

Wed 5th Dec - In the afternoon headed up to Skippers Saddle and shuttled Zoot track. Really cool track, pretty fast with wall rides and a few jumps.

Thur 6th Dec - Woke up early and went for a quick ride up skyline and do the awesome vertigo again.

Thur 6th Dec - In the late afternoon had a quick blast around sticky forest.

Fri 7th Dec - Sticky forest again.

Tue 11th Dec - Headed up the port hills. Rode some really really short track down to Vic Park. Rode back up to the top alond bowenvale ridgeline track and then down bowenvale downhill track. Started getting sore eyes from hayfever so called it quits.

And finally today back in Nelson - Planned to go and ride turners and dead dog but had been on the bike less than a minute and it started to spit so just went up walters bluff.

All in all a good fortnight of riding.
