Have you had a play at Sunpeaks yet?

Hi Malcy - Sun Peaks closed for skiing and snowboarding about 3 or 4 weeks ago and due to reopen for bikes at end of June. Might get season pass before then.

Got my Sun Peaks pass and had 3 good days up there so far. Good variations of trails from easy smooth banked runs to full on tree roots, rocks and drop offs linked with bridges and ladders all easily accessible from the high speed quad.
Route 66 - Sun Peaks, Kamloops B.C.

Rode from Glenfield to Takapuna just to prove how unfit I am :D

First ride ont he Kona, was good! Apart from the rear spring being too soft, but that's easily replaced :)

That certainly looks cold Rob! It was much nicer in Christchurch over the weekend... Although there was a big storm up in the mountains.

It looked like this from the top of the hill... :thumbsup:

Had the day off today after working the weekend - so thought it'd be rude not to head for Makara.

Livewires (nice work on the Skills are/Livewires entrance :thumbsup: )
Aratihi to Upper LL
Upper LL (the extension from Aratihi to ULL is a nice touch too - hadn't ridden that before)
LL to Nikau.
Nikau/ML/Aratihi to top
Angered myself by dabbing on the two techy rocky ups just before the top (wrong gear), had to try again, so....
Salley Alley part 2/ML/Aratihi again
Ridgeline (sweet as this time :thumbsup:)
Extension/Big Toms/Swigg/Starfish

I may or may not have yelped with excitement on my way down the second time, it was such a sweet run.

W00T with a capital W00T!!!!

Cheers Rob. I've only been on the bike a couple of times in the last couple on months, was nice that the legs responded to a longer ride (for me). Although I did set off with the "just take it easy" mindset, which must've paid off, cause its been a long time since I've ridden ridgeline twice in a day!

Feels good to be back and muddy again :thumbsup: (although surprisingly un-muddy at the peak. A slightly slushy section at the start of ridgeline, other than that it was pretty much just tacky goodness)

You should *tackle Lazy Fern at speed for the surprise effect of some deviously tricky corners :)
