Got out late afternoon for a few hours on the hills and to catch a rather amazing sunset.
Riding up to the top
Rolling clouds enveloping the Southern ridge
Had a great ride out...there are a load of piccies over in the cycling forum on this thread
. Here's a few of my favourites from the day...
Even got to eat tasty carrot cake at the cafe!
Was very sketchy in places and I must admit (sorry, for all those who love a White Christmas) I did catch myself thinking "I can't wait til this feckin white stuff melts" Cornering is not a strong point of mine anyway, but when the front wheel is washing out all over the place on the hard-packed and icy trails, it becomes even worse. I'm seriously considering some studs as this is the second year in a row when I could've made use of the them....and we supposedly have more snow to come.
However, we did find a superb bit of new trail. Can't wait to try it out in slightly better conditions. We only rode the top section, but it looks like it gets proper steep at the bottom
