This ride is for the resurrected team El Rancho Relaxo to meet and greet the wonderful trails of Stromlo before the Scott 24 in October but a few more are welcome also . There are six newly marked trails here so not sure of the endurance required to do all six , and in fact if we are able to complete them all, but the plan would be to make the most of the day and have a good look around here without the crowds that will arrive in October .
Another option would be to break up the day and head out to Sparrow Hill after a good feed somewhere along the way

Who's in?
delicious, Chris S, Slowpup, Bikeboy, Sascha, OzMoT (6 riders)

just one day I will click on one of your rides and see someone else signed up to it.

Keep banging them up there mate.. Smiling

But i have a feeling there may be a couple more on this one , and you would be welcome to join us as you may be able to keep up ........if you have been training ... Eye-wink

The amount you have been riding recently I doubt it Eye-wink

But it just means that i dont turn bright red on any slight incline anymore and still puff and blow like an old bugger ....


definitely jealous that i won't be able to make it down there for the ride as already booked for that weekend. i'm assuming that most of you are from syd? just an offer, next time, want me to drive you'all down there and sort accom etc? cheers - Will

My legs are gunna hurt tomorrow from all the climbing but geez it was fun
Next time i am there i will look at the other trails and see how they compare . I aint doing the heartbreaker ever again though ......

I just floated the idea of moving to c'bra with the wife, and she was all.... no way why would we want to live there?

I could ride that every week with pleasure. Wayne, now we know why you spend so much time in the ACT.

I have to get this cramping s#1t sorted.... magnesium hasn't helped, i'm sure I was hydrated enough, possibly low on electrolytes, but we really didn't have much chance for sweating today... Will try and get some of Steves wonder tabs!

Oh did I mention... I love my Yeti. Soon I may be good enough to do it justice.

Thanks Mot for the lift.


mOt is one very happy little boy, what a cool ride yesterday!

Thanks Guys, looking forward to a visit in the not too distant future!
