    How awesome is that - a fat bike day in Oz. Not quite like that here on the Gold Coast. We were clearing a line for new trail. Digging will start soon.

    Cheers Ridnparadise, was an awesome day! Looks like a great area to build some tracks. Nice and clear already. Good luck.

    Ben - definitely worth it at some point.

    PVDM - that looks awesome! I can imagine some of the steep bits must have been pretty hairy.

    I rode in snow in Germany earlier this year, it certainly keeps you on your toes. Good to see it didn't stop you from going out into the bush.

    Been thinking the same thing about CX. I find the idea owning one and entering a few social races appealing (like that one in Darebin Parklands).

    Plus it would be a good commuter for path/road rides to work.

    And speaking of CX, I rode Heathcote Pipeline to Woronora Dam yesterday (on my HT - I don't have a CX, but that's a trail pretty well suited to a CX).

    Had originally planned to ride the Pipeline, cross the highway and ride over to Loftus and back, but ran out of time. Should have started at Loftus - way more interesting!

    Still, it's cool to get out to the dam. Pretty impressive piece of engineering.

    Lysty yesterday. All of it was damp - LOTS of traction A few bits were full-on waterlogged and muddy. I didn't ride Blair Witch though.

    Had a great ride at Old Man's Valley in Hornsby yesterday morning.

    It's the first time I've been there since the Stage 2 trails opened. They're great!

    Quite different from the stage 1 trails, the new ones are smooth and bermy, and fast & flowy as a result. Stage 1 is rocky with a few more technical features.

    So even though all up there's only about 5km of trail, there's enough variety to keep it interesting. Did 4-5 loops and wasn't getting bored at all - just tired!

    I always said I wouldn't go back to Old Man's Valley until stage 2 opened. Looks like its back on the list. I enjoyed stage 1 but it was quite wet when we went so would love to try it out in the dry.

    Got out to OMV on Thursday, was great conditions in stage 2, tacky but not wet. Now its been pouring I can see it taking a fair while to dry out and be ridable again. That trail is very well protected from wind and sun.
    Also visited westleigh for first time, thats a nice trail.

    I didn't know there was a track at Westleigh. Have to check that out sometime too.

    Did the 5th round of the Aus Enduro series at Stromlo. The old bike got pushed to its limits and my body struggled a bit, but I was expecting that. Was a great day out on the trails with all sorts of people having a go.

    What did we all ride on the weekend?

    We've had so much rain in Sydney during August and September that the last 3 weekends have all been washouts. Roadie riding has been the only option, and even then they've been pretty damp affairs.

    Was hoping this weekend would be different, but it pissed down again last night which means whatever drying out had started has to start again.

    Next thing you know, I'll be shaving down...

    Thought you were cured of that......

    Weather is still on our side here. In the last 4 days the ground has changed colour after a recent controlled burn.

    No riding though this week due to Father's Day and a hurt back. We have been up to some construction though.

    Had a first yesterday, I came across a herd of deer. I was almost more shocked than they were...

    I really like 'em. They handle loose stuff better than anyone should expect 'em to, and roll fast. What's more, the front hangs on better than the 2.25 Ardent I took off.

    Well, if Kanye had a MTB, that's how he'd roll too I reckon.

    Are they light? (actual question)

    How long will they stay white? (rhetorical question)
