    Wet Wombat L2 14/7

    Could anyone feel their finger tips within the first hour or so of the ride? I definitely couldn't! But worth being out on the pegs with a great bunch of blokes... Andy350 took the reigns for the first leg... then passing em on to Barclay deep in the forest. Thanks Andy300 for putting on the ride... ya look good in the new eyewear... i do question the wind chill factor compared to goggles though. The first leg was fast paced with wide open fire trails some rockier than others. One particular clay downhill was sooo slick i briefly stopped (kinda slid outta control gracefully) to drop the 14 psi i had in my rear air balloon (aka tyre) for a spongier feel to the rear... problem solved! Great to ride with a few of the lads i rode with over 12 months ago at Anglesea... great to see Greasa again who did throw on the sweep jersey after losing Al as already mentioned. Halfway into the ride the baton was passed on to Barclay @ Nolans picnic area. Legend has it Barclay actually lives in the forest surviving solely on plants, berries and fresh fish... while getting to ride Wombat every second day hhmmm lol From Nolans picnic ground Barclay took me into some unknown territory... One of his favorite watering holes where we joked about a swim leg of the day... ride-swim-trek haha And BearMX dipping his feet in the water confirming it was too frikn cold bbbrrr haha Break over we were back in the pegs... one particular mound (jokingly) i struggled up the height of a car lol... i shoulda just gone up the middle like everyone else hhmm who screeched and loudly went up. Thankfully no dramas as we saw Barclay take off back into the forest he lives in and Andy350 getting us back to the cars... Great day out... Longy hows the switch to the Kato? Oh and Lindon hows ya roost? Top day out on the pegs! TrailZ

    On a positive note CV remained at the last corner so that he was easily found after being separated from the group. If he had of strayed off the course it would of made finding him very difficult. Moral of the story... stay put on the course and someone will always come back for you

  13. Yesterdays ride was a thriller. Bear and myself met at 6:30am and made our way to Avoca where we met with 10 of the lads minus Barclay who half way there realized his boots weren't packed and turned back home calling it a day... At the unload spot the carpark was almost full with 15 or so other riders taking off for their ride... soon after we were all ready and on the pegs lead by Bear - for what was to be one epic ride! The pace was good all day with a few riders stepping it up, some motivating other riders to roll the wrist holding it wide open. Rain throughout the week made for a mostly grippy surface with a few slippery logs and rocks along the way... We covered about 100klms for the day - Bear testing our ride fitness via long descents and of course ascends. We got to the bottom one very long rocky descend and Pudmud stopped to plug a flat tyre and off we were again after about 15 minutes... what we didn't realize was at the next stop after that - CentralVic wasn't with us... hhmm Most of us asking was he with us when we stopped for Pudmud's plug? Some thought he was others but truth was he wasn't so we back tracked to the hill thinking something was wrong... Bear set off to find him. It turns out he went up a play hill behind us earlier on a ride and turned left instead of right to where we all were. Some 40 minutes later Bear found him, apparently trying to light a fire to keep warm with 2 sticks... All together again we continued our ride and three of us CentralVic, Lindon and myself met other riders on the trail asking if they saw the group go past but sure enough they didn't... me thinks the group was playing hide and seek from CentralVic hahaha So we turned back and DazzRMX is on the trail looking for us... someone had forgotten the Golden Rule... stay on the corner. I really enjoyed my ride getting up some challenging hills and navigating lines down others. I did have my front slide out on a turn with dark soggy mud and Lindon debating whether to use me as traction... thankfully he didn't. We got to one hill that Bear got up nice a cleanly and I had made a few weeks back when it was drier so he called out me me asking me to go up... commenting if I make it everyone else would... sure enough half way up my rear slid on a rocky step and turned me sideways.. carnage was to follow me after that. Then Don showed us how it was done as he cruised up the hill (smiling assassin style). Great stuff mate! Sorry Dazz I couldn't get my camera on in time to video your magnificently clean effort up to the top hhmm It was awesum to see CentralVic climb up one very slippery and challenging play hill with Trailmaker300 and _Chris. Was that pivot turn up there on purpose CentralVic? All together and few more klms to go Lindon and Beeaye topped up their fuel tanks for the last 15 to 20 klms... we were on the home stretch on the top of a ridge when all of a sudden Dazz tells us it was his birthday. Happy Birthday Dazz! Beeaye pulled out the party mix and Pudmud put his feet up in his brand spanking new Gaerne Boots... Back to the cars and it was time for our BBQ - Don handed out the beers to our delight and Lindon pulled out chicken and beef frozen icy poles telling us they were sausages... yep the snags were frozen hahaha what a pisser! Thanks Bear for an awesum days ride at the Pyrenees and Lindon for sweeping... CentralVic for waiting patiently at a corner and the Gods for holding out on the rain til we finished our BBQ. Can't wait for the next ride TrailZ Pics and Video to come
