This ride is for the lost or lonely to meet and greet the wonderful trails of Stromlo before the Scott 24 in October and all are welcome to join me , the lonely.....ha ha . There are six newly marked trails here so not sure of which ones i will do, but the plan would be to make the most of the afternoon and have a good look around here without the crowds that will arrive in October .
There is more than 24 hours notice given that its 3.10 now so make an effort , just a casual drive down the Hume Hwy and plenty of fun to be had here

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

There might be a rider limit but there is NO speed limit! Come show your speed, breathtaking balancing acts and jumping tricks on the red dirt of Majura Pines.

Heading Down to watch the World Cup at Stromlo on Friday 4th September and leaving Sunday after the presentations. There was plenty of rain last year and this year there might be plenty more! But that shouldn't scare you! Get that heart, legs and bike prepared for an amazing weekend of cycling, racing and anything else you fancy.

I have to be an optimistic bugger , or perhaps i should just face facts , i have no friends here .... but thats ok , i can ride into the sunset at Sparrow hill to my hearts content building a platform on my way to glory at the Scott 24 in October in our very competitive team El Rancho Relaxo . My plan tonight is to ride for about two hours here and get a feed ( red rooster , why change) and scoot off to Stromlo for a standard Green Loop flyer ( working on a sub 40 min night lap ) and then try to beat it for another one ... Any takers ??

Very important note !!!

Come on you lot , get you butts down here and race as hard or as casual as you like . I will probably give the D grade quicks a shake this time , after a very quick two week training blitz .....But dont let that intimidate you , super smooth single track , no agro and perhaps even a great coffee for the trip back home ! you may even have some talent , skill or even fitness and want to go higher than the dizzy heights of D grade , there is C for three laps , and even B four laps and it just gets scary up from here all the way up to A grade .

DUE TO A GREMLIN in my ADSL line my computer has no broadband speed , only dial up ....YUCK.... so to save my sanity i thought about three laps of the best trails i have ridden on should do the trick .

It will be a afternoon / night ride so unless you ride "Brail" bring good lights , warm gear and a sense of adventure as chances are I/ we will have the whole forest alone .....Spooky stuff and not for the faint hearted

Also as i am now boycotting my computer please SMS me on 0418 793 360 as i am flexable on the time .....to a point !

Some bugger has to turn up one day .........

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 you have always wanted to race Majura Pines and not have to do it for 24 hours solo,now is the time ! Round two of the Corc racing season and it is lots of fun , race hard but finish with a smile on your face . I usually find a nice cafe afterwards to contemplate the drive home ,and laugh at my abysmal performance in the race ..... ok not really but its heaps of fun all the same Give it a go .... you know you want to !! and the cold May Canberra weather will toughen you up !!!! You may even have to dodge the odd roo during the race as well
