I will be trying to revisit the Mont course , if i dont get lost .....18 k'S of sweet single track if not just ride / explore the best trails around for an hour or two or three.... after this i will need to feed ...Gluten free red rooster fills the belly here
And all going well scoot off to Stromlo for a hot lap of the Std XC Course ( well not that hot at 45-47 min night laps for me ) If there is anyone here to keep me company i could be convinced to explore some more but as the place feels to me like Wolf Creek at night, on my own i only have the courage to bolt around one time

I do have to work the next day but am planning to run around Majura the next night and all are welcome also

If nobody turns up i will have the Kangaroo's to keep me company one again but would love to have a chat out there with a human friend

Hope you can join me

Bikeboy Another tedious night alone in the forest !!! Well once again i had a spare two hours to kill , and what better way to do it than at Sparrow hill AGAIN !!! This time i had the whole forest to myself .....not really lonely friends ....bad deodorant .....just the thought of my poor wife...
Bikeboy My Cold night in the forest well once again i was on my own , well apart from the Mont track builder , but it was pretty thin on the ground for my Nobmob friends , i suppose a few of you had a pretty good excuse from not turning up this time , some little ride up north .......

Were you there and have a story to tell?

I can't make this but it looks like you go to Canberra often, and as I'm moving there in a few weeks so I'll be able (and keen) to do these rides.

I get down there about once a month not including the Corc XC races ( round 1 this sunday at Stromlo ) i usually post a ride now .....And no bugger turns up , i suppose its a long drive for a four hour ride , i will keep posting and see you there when you can make it
