    G’day, I guess it is probably time to complete the formal introduction process:

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state)
    Bonbeach, Vic (S.E. Bayside)

    How often do you ride?
    Trying to commute 2-3 a week + 1-2 on the dirt
    If only I could string this much riding together for a few consecutive weeks, I could actually get fit.

    Style of riding?
    When I was younger, it was just called mountain biking, now we call it XC/trail riding……I like riding fast and don’t jump bikes off cliffs.

    Occupation?
    Instructor / technical product training (non-bike industry)

    Bike you own?
    From oldest to newest:
    Mongoose IBOC Team – this was cutting edge in about 1992 when I bought it as a 2 season old clear-out, complete with rigid forks, XT thumb shifters and cantilever brakes.

    Then there was a long hiatus from bikes until about four years ago.

    GT Avalanche 0.5 – Current day LX level hardtail. It now wears slicks for my commuting, and makes a good loan bike for anyone tall (I’m 6’3”)

    Cannondale Rush – A good bike, I think they are getting a bit overlooked because they have been around for a while. Seems reliable and more comfortable now the lefty has been replaced with F120 forks.

    Bike you aspire to own?
    It is on order now…..

    Fave trail?
    Having just had a trip to NZ for work, I managed a sneaky road trip to Rotorua which has simply amazing trails. Other than that, Lysterfield is the regular haunt, which is always nice to come back to.

    Fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Melbourne, because I know my way around the roads. It does my head in to travel by car in other cities.

    Other sports?
    Bikes take time and money…..the wife would probably kill me! I do tinker with R/C toys, but not very often (I wonder if that is a sport?). I have a son who is three years old - parenthood is not a sport but does keep you busy. My son has 4 bikes already!

    G'day.

    My name is Warren Hudson. Wassa is what most call me except for a couple of close Mates who always call me Wild Wassa because of my love for photographing South Eastern Australian Wilderness.

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state) ... Macgregor in the Australian Capital Territory.

    How often do you ride? ... every day nowadays.

    Style of riding? ... f'n ugly.

    Occupation? ... Custom painter and refinisher of racing yachts.

    Bike you own? ... I've an old 20 kg clunker called a Scorpion made in Finland which is my pack horse and a Giant XTC 2 which is a fractious bucking bronko.

    Bike you aspire to own? ... I aspire to ride well. I have the bikes that I want.

    Fave trail? ... I live 15 drive minutes from Stromlo Bike Park and a couple of minutes from Bruce Ridge Nature Park but my favourite trails are the old logging trails in the Budawang Wilderness and in the Kanangra Boyd Wilderness and in the Bimbiri Wilderness and the narrow sheep trails in the paddocks near home.

    Fave city... why? ... Paynesville on the Gippsland Lakes in Victoria and Wangi Wangi on Lake Macquarie in NSW, neither are cities just small coastal towns. Melbourne is a good place to visit. Melbourne has classy architecture with the old and the new.

    Other sports? ... Yacht racing which has been a major part of my life ... although I'm enjoying the bikes more nowadays, more than racing boats and have joined this site because of my like for biking in the wilderness.

    Although the Scorpion is a total pain in the arse, she has carried much gear into some great wild places and not ever broken down. Here are some shots that the Scorpion and I have collaborated to make ... http://wildwassa.deviantart.com/gallery/

    Cheers.

    Warren.

    Roll call...

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state): Sydney

    How often do you ride? No where near enough! Keeping fit but quality bike time is hit and miss right now.

    Style of riding? XC, heavy XC... getting out and riding.

    occupation? See the sig below.

    bike you own? Mountain Cycle San Andreas

    bike you aspire to own? Seriously none. I love my bike, have a second as a spare!

    fave trail? Awaba in the Hunter region.

    fave city... why? (controversial!) None. Sydney's a love hate. Canberra's cool for the riding.

    other sports?
    Extreme finger twiddling ...

    Where you live? (suburb, city, state): Newcastle

    How often do you ride? It feels like I don't at the moment, at least not outside the gym. Once I get my mornings back I usually get in a few dawn rides a week.

    Style of riding? XC, DH and the occasional dabbling in DJ and 4X, not often anymore for the last two.

    occupation? Full Time Town Planner in local government, part time trails advocacy guy for HMBA and NSWMTB.

    bike you own? Main bikes - Proflex 955, Norco Faze 1, Norco Team DH and a Jamis Exile for SS duties.

    bike you aspire to own? None if I plan to stay married. Got a Mountaincycle Fury on the way so the DH bike may have to go.

    fave trail? Awaba (its my baby) and Glenrock. Preference being Awaba, but glenrock is only a 5min ride away.

    fave city... why? Cities aren't for me so I am more than happy with Newcastle.

    If I had to move, it wouldn't be to a city, it would be to some where like the Lakes District in the UK or Wallis Valley in Switzerland.

    other sports? Football, the real one with the round ball. Mind you if it weren't for football I would get a lot more riding in.

    Welcome BEN-OOL.

    What is the riding like in Cesnock? My Nan lives there and lots of my family use to live there, including my olds. Maybe I need to visit her...

    Im sure you will have lots of fun on the Norco.

    Well I thought I'd better..

    Where you live?
    Albany Western Australia
    How often do you ride?
    At the moment four times a week leading up to my first MTB race in Dwellingup, this could either be a really good or bad idea.
    Style of riding?
    XC with a bit of variety just to scare myself
    occupation?
    Teacher, when they listen, Entertainer when they don't
    bike you own?
    Cannondale Rush
    bike you aspire to own?
    Kind of happy with the Rush ATM but an Orbea Occham or an Ibex, perhaps a Yeti... Kind of toying with getting a roadie for fitness but then perhaps something a little more downhill oriented would also be a good addition. Maybe just one of each eh?
    fave trail?
    Well, small town. We do have an amazing new downhill track, but when it comes to xc tails there are some pretty odd attitudes out there so I guess I can't say.

    fave city... why? (controversial!)
    Been around a bit, probably could live in Calgary or Seattle, or Chamonix, but honestly cities don't do it for me.
    other sports?
    Breath hold spearfishing. Kill it eat it.

    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.

    http://www.arocsport.com.au/mtbendur...duro_home.html

    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.
