Cool ride, you got most of my favourite tracks there. Did you manage to ride the high line on that big bermy corner of Leaping Lizard just before it starts winding down into the bush? Was LL very greasy or was it grippy?

Vic park= :love: . Tracks where running mint, actually spent the afternoon pushing the gambler up rather than lazy arse shuttles for once, wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

Out for a sifty one to check out a track with a view to draggin the family out for a ride. Nothing thrilling but nice to be out on the bike for a change, watching the sunset through the trees, and exploring random tracks in the forest is always entertaining.

I was inspired by Stumpyrider's outing:
In at Allington Rd> AMP Connector> RL Ext>Big Toms Wheelie> Magic Carpet> top Koru> Sally Alley> Missing Link> Aratihi to Upper LL> Leaping Lizards> Possum> Nikau valley> Missing link> Aratihi to the summit.

Took longer than I expected (having already started later than I realised), darkness arrived as I reached the top of Aratihi and I hadn't brought my lights so I had to ditch the plan to ride NF> JFK> Smokin> SWIGG & Starfish> Koru> Snakecharmer> Rimu. Instead I just rode down Snakecharmer and up over the Allington Connector 4WD track. Fun ride, what an awesome bike park!

Yesterday I rode up "Goat's Grovel," at long gully as my mate called it. (Trust me, it was named accordingly!)
Then from the dome down Barking Emu>Carparts Extension>carparts>Sawmill>Transient. 40 minute descent! EPIC!

Yesterday:

Karapoti gorge - up Pram track - down Dopers - left up Rimu Rd - Toi Toi Rd - Puketiro Rd - Bullsrun Rd - Birch Spur Rd - Airstrip Drive - Three Skulls Rd - Totara Zig Zag - Massive feed of Fish n Chips at Totara Park shops - Back to Karapoti car park.

After starting the morning with hail and torrential rain the sun burst through and it was a lovely day (and night).
