maybe I should have stayed at work....

This thread started as a way of keeping some existing posts together relating to my regular riding area (the Maungakotukutuku Valley) where I go most weekends with my kids.

These are the devil spawn I normally ride with - My sons Tim and Glen.



I then started adding in some reports of other rides and now its become a bit of a hodge podge...

The posts are in no particular order - which wasnt intended its just the way its worked out.

so without further ado...

Maybe I should Have Stayed At Work..


Glen had today off work so after lunch I decided to play hookee(sp?) and go for a ride with him.

We loaded up the bikes and headed up to our local riding area (Maungutukutuku Valley) for some fun.

We decided to play in the forest which is always a blast



How Glen managed to ride around for a while without noticing this was beyond me.



We decided to explore some rougher tracks and I rode round a corner down a drop off and found myself in some nasty mud

Glen bailed at the last minute and avoided my fate.



I wasnt so lucky



It was deeper than my boots and super sticky - we had to jam timber under the frame and lie the bike on the timber to get it out. Must have taken 20 minutes to get it out.

I was so rooted by the time we got it out I though I was going to puke..



This was the worst muck I have ever been stuck in..



We finally made it back to the car and I noticed that my indicator was looking worse for wear.



Oh and to finish the day off my front tire went flat about 500m from the car.

It was an awesome ride - and I'm totally f*cked
