Rider Update

Andrew Meddings says - 'We did 100kms on the fire trails. Bike all good except I discovered the headlight didn't work when I got into the glow worm tunnel .
I managed to pull up against the side & Ryan turned me around. The other thing I discovered is its a road bike & not a particularly good one . It isn't very good going down steep rutted hills . But on the plus side it not that far to fall going over the bars.'
