I will be blindly following the red or blue arrows around untill i get tired of the best singletrack around , if i dont get lost .....
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 Bermagui MTB park 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 ....... the voices can keep me company too..

Hope you can join me ( you , not the voices )

Bikeboy As mentioned last night Bermagui Bermagui MTB park was tonights destination and what a great little trail . Its just over 6.5 k's and it is almost 100% single track a little bit techy and if you aint puffin like and old bugger you aren't trying . There are five good honest climbs...
Bikeboy Sparrow Hill What can i say ....Sparrow Hill just under two hours to do two laps of the hybrid blue and red lap . 22.50 k's of super smooth single track What a blast . I was the only person in the forrest tonight but it didnt matter i went as hard as my body...

Were you there and have a story to tell?

I am based in Sydney and haven't ridden in Canberra yet. i do like how you keep posting these rides and i will definately contact you when i finally make my way there. until then, keep posting and riding. Darren.

I will keep posting in the vain hope that one day some bugger will turn up and ride with me . Perhaps everyone is is just a little envious of all the really cool places i get to ride all the time ......or perhaps my humour just sucks .... either way i have fun ........Now Majura /Stromlo or Sparrow / Stromlo tuesday night hmmmm too many choices

I would think that some Local Canberra riders would stumble upon the site and join you, we know at least 1 Canberra MTBer reads this forum.

So it might not happen overnight, but it will happen Smiling

If you post one on the Monday night in two weeks which will be June the first, I'll come.
I promise.
And on the next day when you're hawking hardware products to the good citizens of the ACT, I'll be looking for those 27 women Morgan claim he saw.
I'll also ride Stromlo. Then have a pizza at the Eagle Hawk pub on the way back to Sydney...

Peter, As the fourth of june i have the pleasure of one of my managers touring the ACT with me .The bike will be in the car though . Keep your eye on the posts and one will line up soon

I am sure one day there will be someone Clicking the star on one of my rides but as i have a job where i have to be "on" most of the day i am comfortable with my own company .......and the roo's of course
