Autumn

The season of change. Bosom buddy to the maturing sun.... Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store.

What ever the hell that means.

Welcome to Round #1 one the 4 Seasons 3hr series.

Ah, the end of the quarter, BAS, quarterly tax, paper work... But it wasn't always so.

Remember when life was simple? Remember when you rode your bike to have a good time?
When you rode because it felt good and the company you rode with and the tracks you rode were more important than having 1000 categories to choose from and a big list of swag to win.

2016-2017 Tuesday night racing. Rydal

Tuesday Night Racing at Rydal.

It's bunch of fun

We are fairly relaxed, A grade just means you do more laps, and we encourage every one to have a go.

We don't have podiums or prizes so it's all about getting out there and competing against your own time and your mates and then laughing about it at the BBQ afterwards.

So don't be intimidated by the "race" tag. We all just go out to do our best.

Doing the higher grade with more laps will gain you more series points.

There is a shorter track for juniors when we run the longer loops

Sheep Station Cup 24-04-2016

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

The Sheep Station Cup was born from the idea of having an event that linked up the usual extended XC loop with some of the other trails in the Lidsdale Forest out the back of Rydal

The original used a 25km loop with options of 1 or 2 laps and offered the winners the coveted Sheep Station in the form of the now rare Squatters Board game.

For 2016 we are introducing more options

The Fiddy K: 50kms
The Middy K: 25kms
and the Kiddy K: 10km

A short lap of Rydal

Rydal is cool in that you can link segments together in a myriad of different ways to keep it all fresh

This week we did out Jive Turkey, then crossed over to link in Robbies Run. Up Snake tails. Hard right and into Hazard County. Hard left and back along the dump run.

I caught lap on the gopro using a gimbal mounted to chesty

Lap 1

A little faster chasing Watto and Gav down Hazard County

Summer

T'is the season to be jolley. A relaxed, chilled out Christmas event is called for.
So lets ride

I want to hear caroling as we ride.

Bonus points for Christmas costumes I reckon!
