There was a tree that came down over night on Cattlemans Tk. We could see mez's and 'silla's tracks going through, or under it. But we had to build a ramp.

Few others down too, including one on Chalk Hills West FT that resulted in a 10 km loop to get another 200 m. Top ride!

Maybe this thread should be renamed "chickenshits who don't ride or post , around the ACT". I found this at the bottom of page 3, come on you pack of girls, it isn't even cold yet.

And even if it was cold, you can always find warmth and adventure towards the coast.

My apologies for the insults to those who have ridden, and/or even just posted, lately.

Well I am spending the day in a paddock looking at these hills, wishing I was riding. .

There's a singletrack ride in Tallaganda on Wednesday ...

Might be a bit wet ...

See DBW for details ...

Be good to do a ride down in your neck of the woods (Tom and Mezcal) - or even a loop from Numeralla that joins up with you both somewhere along the track - should look at that sometime in the next couple of weeks ...

Howdy Hoots. How's it going?

I just checked, the blokes who have posted since I put mine up earlier today are all the same blokes who have posted over the last 11 days since your post on the 15th at 12:30, Hoots. No-one else. What a pack of losers, eh? Here we are, an Indian summer late into May, weather to die for, scenery to weep at, largely dust-free and mild temps, and there's no-one apart from 4 or 5 of us who has gotten out. Or even posted.

Lame, lame, lame. I hope Fati bails in to tell the losers how bloody good it was on the weekend.

Dunno about Tallaganda Hootie, I've got (alleged) tradesmen coming for the remainder of the week. Given they started a day late last Tuesday, and haven't actually achieved a single thing over last week, I'm thinking I want to be onsite, just in case I need to conduct an execution or two. Just in case. Also, a wet Tallaganda ride isn't high on my list of "don't get injured" events these days either. I've been there before, it can get pretty slippery on the day.

I still owe you a visit for knee guards and a discman, from memory.

I reckon "Yass to Bega and the hole in between riders thread" has a nice ring to it.

It was a great weekend for a ride. And one beautiful campsite...





Cheers,
Fati

I've been riding nearly every day since I got the crash repairs done and fork swap finished. I start a loop from my house, past woden, fly by the RAMint, take the T2 track around the biggest trig point in the state, turn right at the heratige listed accommodation, go past a coupla dams beside the lake and stop for a long lunch near the lake, but I usually end up doing a heap of work for the people there and dont get going until 5pm or after. Usually come home the other side of the trig on a similar T2 track that passes a house where some stingy Bastard is supposed to live but he's never home. Private security wont let me in to knock on the door anyway. Then back past the mint, woden and home. Its not a long run, but you need your wits about you at certain bits.

I do that nearly 5 times a week, most weeks of the year, rain, hot or freezing.

It's nice to see I got a couple of bites.

Bummer about the crashed car there. I guess that will be a money soak to fix, they usually are. Thanks for the forgiveness, that's what makes the world go round (well, that and XR's being ridden....).

Nice commute there wiz. If you could clear the cars off the road it would be pretty safe too. Kick the stingy bastard for me if you see him.

It's good to see there are people still alive out there.

Ok, I'll chime in.

Shiftwork is a shit. It was a big driver towards my retirement. The secret to shiftwork is to quit before it kills you. Seriously.

Baz, I'm thinking you might need to focus on winning your boss's job. I gather he/she works Mon-Fri?

Fati has eloquently expressed his delight to me at working Mon-Fri, the money is irrelevant if you don't have a life, then die.

So when's your next social occassion?
