What did we all ride on the weekend?
I got a ride in Sunday morning, appreciating the fact that there was some degree of moisture in the ground from a little rain we had in Vic. No little "POOOOF!" of powder as you hit two inch deep patches of bulldust, not so much washout from loose corners and the bush had that clean, gum tree smell.
I did a 36km rolling hills ride, which is a combination of hilly dirt roads and rocky double track, just a few minutes from home. Put it in the big ring and let 'er rip. It looked like it might rain for a while, but unfortunately it all blew away.
What did everyone else ride?
Lysterfield, Saturday morning
Got a ride in before the rain on Saturday morning at Lysterfield. 32kms of dusty single track. Hadnt been out there for a few weeks, so it was good to get back into it. Very dry and dusty though, seems like each time I'm out there, theres another dead tree that has fallen over. Hopefully the rain on the weekend has freshened things up a bit.
Just got back from the Yangs!
I'm back, what a ride! Went on so many tracks that i've never ridden before, day was great until this happened......
So yeah in reference to sicwombat's previous post, i'm getting a new wheelset :D Whats funny is that i'd already ordered it and it will be here monday, and that is why i'm smiling in the picture. Brakes wise looks like some HFX-9 Carbons, i like the bite and power.
Fun and games at the Yangs. the best part was we'd been riding for a couple of hours and this happened a couple of hundred metes from the carpark!
