Laid Back Lamb Valley

An outing for the small bikes. Lamb Valley is a great venue, Haven't been out there for a couple of years. They used to use (probably still do) a couple of long killer hills as part of the main track, so not somewhere I'd take the 640 in the wet, even with fresh S12s.

25th November.

details

Anytime. Gotta dial in my 200 now, the front end is terrible set to standard, way too stiff.

What're people up to over the Christmas/New Year break? I'm keen for some forest riding on the 200. Though Hira is looking unlikely there's the two other permitted forests available. Everyone get their permits paid up by today? Servicing and fettling the 640 in the next week so maybe not much of a window for adventuring.

Also, one day between the 28th Dec and 1st Jan, most likely 29th or 30th, I will be driving a car with the 640 on the trailer around to the south end of the Heaphy track, leaving the car & trailer and riding the 640 home. Anyone interested in joining in and maybe doing some exploring on the way back? I can't stay out overnight, but you may wish to make it into more than a day ride.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

29th or 30th at this stage I could be persuaded on a ride to GB maybe depending on stuff.
Only gave myself weekends off (dumass).
