Tip track

Ugh

Carparts extension + carparts - W00t!

Misunderestimated the length of my new bars though on a couple of the tighter spots!! :D :D

I took the dirty route home from work today - up Transient, Sawmill, Carparts, Carparts extn, then up Wrights Hill. Last Saturday I descended Salvation, but figured I might as well go for a steam down Deliverance - I hadn't been down there since about April I guess?! Good fun, always nice to get a clean run down there, speshly when the confidence is low...

Sifted around Papkowhai School, teaching my girl how to ride without training wheels. Been working on it for a while but this was the first time she got it. Very emotional to let go, watch her wobble a bit then straighten up and hammer out about 70m!

Ice creams at the dairy ensued. Very proud dad. Very exciting day.

The other day on the way home from a meeting in the Hutt, I carried up Last Sun in Belmont. Shit the bed thats an awesome track! I didn't have the time, but look fwd to riding down and honing my gnar till I can steam all the gaps. Good chicken routes around the airs for the non-swimmers too. So really modern xc ;o) . Do it now while it is bone dry though. It would be a huge handful if slippery.

Just when I think I'm a 'proper' mountain biker, I read something like this that just makes me go, ' :eh: '

Haha! A wise man once said that the best mountainbiker was the one having the most fun. Proper mountain bikers are any who just enjoy the ride, whatever it maybe.

Since getting on a fully I am expanding what I can ride. It stands to reason that with shocks, discs, wide bars and big tires, I should be able to extend myself a little further than the riding I was doing many many moons ago.

Great day out there today in Wellington!

Dunno about being "proper", but I completely agree with the rest of that - infact, it should also apply to other disciplines too IMO... Wise words Davo. :thumbsup:

a bit like riding handicap bike on the trails you've ridden too often, gives them a different edge and brings back that lol factor

Makara Peak yesterday.

Wainui today.

Both rides were over two hours. Finally starting to get some strength and endurance back.

Hmmm, time to think about returning to the Jungle.

I got out for a cruise around on the MTB today, although I nearly got blown over on the way into town!

Hit a lap of the old nats course on Mt. Vic, before heading through town & Central Park. Got about 400m up the tip track before being blown over. Considered turning back, but slogging up Happy Valley Road into the wind didn't appeal... so I carried on. Got blown off the track on the top half again, before heading along Carparts extn, Carparts, Sawmill, Highbury Fling and down to Aro Valley.

Good fun, but DAMN that wind is strong out there!
