    Love the Youies but the best would have to be at Mogo nsw
    Im interested to find out more about the trails at Mogo. Do you have any maps or know where i can find out more about them. Went there recently but didnt get to check out the trails. They hold an 100km enduro race there i believe. Any info would be great,

    thanks

    The endurance race at Mogo is "The Angry Doctor". 100km or 50km. Your choice. I'll enter the 100km before it sells out hopefully, if I can find the cash in time.

    They have some very sweet singletrack near the end apparently. There's videos in the website somewhere.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Hey all - was discussing lights behind the scenes with some people, and it was suggested i look here. Didn't realise there was a local presence until a couple of days ago...

    Anyway, i've grown up in templestowe riding the the yarra trails with my family and best mate. Forgot about the bike when i got my license, but full time work has pushed me back into exercise. My mate and i are still close and riding in the same areas we started off on 15+ years ago, but having fun and far from bored with the trails.

    I ride everyday on the fixie - try to use the mtbs as often as possible, and am considering converting one of them to be more road friendly when i move to st kilda shortly.

    My favourite trails are those around my family home in templestowe. I think a lot of it is nostalgia, but it is great having the park and wildlife a couple of minutes from home.

    I'm a bit of a car nut too, but trying to repress that while i save some money. The bike habit isn't helping, as i built up a gt in december last year, bought a new avanti in feb, built a fixie in may and have just finished an eight month rebuild on a retro roadie...

    Outside melb my favourite area is the south of france .I think things move at a nice speed there and i like good food.

    I think i know a few of you from other places...

    Al what sort of an intro is that ? if this was rotorburn you'd be banned for not using the template ! (mtbr is a bit more for grown-ups)

    I'm back from Bali now, you coming out Tue evening?

    Still haven't driven the 205 Mi, maybe the Ivan's Folly in August...

    I didn't spend four years doing a writing degree to use dot points!

    Tuesday would be good. My legs barely work after a game of netball on wednesday night, but i made it out for a few hours this arvo. I think it was one of my better days ever on a bike - the weather was great, i didn't fall off and maim myself (again) and there were animals everywhere.

    The trails are much better than they were a week ago too, especially past odyssey house.

    I like the tempo here more, although that may be the absense of illiterate children. I particularly like the fat bikes and can see myself needing one of them...

    You won't know yourself with a real engine either - that said, lets not get ahead of ourselves! I'll believe it when i see it.

    I think we have been in touch years ago. It is a shame that aussiefrogs has gone downhill so much lately - it was really lively and entertaining five years ago, but has lost most of the personalities

    It seems like the irritable old men and kids make up the majority of posts now

    PJ still exercises his ego there a lot...is he a kid or irritable old man? I'm selling a 205 there at the moment and it really has lost it.

    You selling the white one?

    I was going to try and convince you that you need my grey si for your daughter. It is a great car, but very surplus to requirements as i barely drive and have three other cars.

    I don't even want to think about pj either. He is so much of what is wrong with that place. Everybody that has joined in the last few years seems to be a stalker or just very odd... or both

    Have not been on a COG ride for some time, did some a few years ago but Wednesday's suited me better. So i just ride with a group of mates at different places each week (although the last few weeks have not been great) and then ride over the weekend when i get a chance inbetween kids sport and other stuff!

    I am usually at the COG for coffee at some stage over the weekend.
