I'm pretty keen on heading to Canberra for a couple of days after Christmas. Thinking of spending an afternoon at Majura Pines, and then the following day at Stromlo.
Pretty flexible with where I ride, just have a couple of days free and thought I'd check out the ACT tracks! I'm open to suggestions of where to ride and for how long.

I'll be leaving from Frenchs Forest around 8:00am on the Wednesday (now Tuesday) and can fit another 2 bikes in the car if anyone's interested in coming with.

It's on all week, but I'll be there for the weekend, expecting to go down on Friday afternoon back Sunday evenng after the presentations.
Will take the bike and do a couple of rides too, although a bit early to confirm exactly where, but count on it being around the course where possible. Also a chance to ride some of the circuit that'll be used for the Scott 24. There's a ride posted already out at Majura on Saturday morning by Jeeten [ http://nobmob.com/node/9937 ].

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!

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 !!!

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
