Hopefully shud have my new 12 litre tank by then so lost sounds cool-the 8litre one thats on it now means walking out when lost
Peter you shouldnt even consider going out with wife that close- oh forgot shes a rider to so she would understand baby cant arive till after ride finished

Hi Peter/Mick

I have checked the weather predictions and are not looking favourable - whats your thoughts?

We could relocate the ride to Mt Mee where the terrain is less influenced by rain (not so much clay...)

Regards Mathew

Hey Guys..

Spoke to the guy at the cafe this afternoon.. they have only had the 'odd shower' - still being reasonably dry / clear.

In his opinion, the Brisbane forecast as such usually wouldnt extend past Caboolture.

I will check the radar in the morning around 5.30am and see what the go is.

Stay tuned.

Thanks.

There has been a bit of rain up there now, so should be lots of fun for the mud larks.

glasshouse ride.

Hi Pete/Mick.

Thanks for a great ride. Yes! the technical sections were unreal including big ledges, steep hills and steps... a Beta or Gas Gas would have been envious...just to make it.


Great navigation from Pete always returning us to the cafe in need of urgent powerades and cheesecakes.

Mick I do like your humor - no comments about the young girl riding up the hill with the 2 ledges on the lefthand line and I am sure Pete felt no pressure to ride it without a dab


Excellent ride, see you on the next one

Regards Mathew
