2012-12-06 Plenty-Spurs-Power

Distance: 275km

Route:


The general plan was to head out through New Norfolk, through the Mt Lloyd pine forests to check out a couple of the minor tracks (that caught my eye on Google Earth), then poke around a stack of dead-end logging spurs to the west of Plenty Valley Rd (Lanes Link Rd?)...

Most the spur tracks were unmapped so I did up a rough route on RidewithGPS so I didn't have to put too much thought into into it while riding:

(I often make a messy route like that so I've got a rough idea of what tracks are worth a look... As usual, I didn't do 1/2 of what I had on the plan, better to have more than not enough)

Heading down the eastern side of the Mt Lloyd forest: (34 to 60km on the route)


Quite a few decent hills!, a lot of it is fairly challenging on a big bike:




























Then out the southern end of Mt Lloyd back onto the fast gravel roads:




A 10 mins video:


It's a great area to ride.. but it's popular with dirt bike riders on weekends, so I only go through there on weekdays, less chance of running into anyone...

To be continued... .. .
