Us two on a bike together Jardine, I don't mind but you might. You know Jude calls my bike "The crash bike" I specialise in low speed flibbles though. I can see it, you peering over my shoulder yelling "faster". Would be silly fun alright.
You could always take my 4by.

I told you you needed an MTB Jardine. when your all healed up I'm dragging you up my way to ride our miles and miles of sweet single track. You'll love it.

Infact, we may need to have a "Chix MTB weekend". Oh goody.

Check out "crossfit", its infinitely scaleable, fantastic for core and crazy intense. I love it. You could make up work outs that cater for your foot in plaster, with a bit of imagination. I'm getting good results very quickly. Just make sure you maintain good technique, as with everything really.

Magazines, mmmmmm .......all I can offer is tap wear, toilet and light switch catalogs.

Oh really,...... I was just getting used to the idea of you reaching over my shoulder to grab the throttle and give it a good twist.

Ok we'll do an early spring MTB ride when you've healed up and had a chance to get some fitness back - not that you are loosing any by the sounds of things.

With the mountain bike stuff, perhaps a Chix in the Stix mountain bike camping weekend.

I already have my camping trailer ready to tow behind the pushie.

Just need to work on my fitness.

Yeah that's because you are a cheat.

Remember how hard that bike was to push when the batteries went flat.

Great idea.

But apparently it is a bugger to push if the batteries go flat, and won't climb hills with low batteries. Then again you would be fit enough to ride it without the batteries unlike girly Brute.

I'll quote an email she sent a few of us:
Hey Chix.

I hope that you're all doing great… heads up and feet down :-)

Last weekend I thought of all of you - and am to send you all a greeting from our neighboring country of Sweden :-)
I participated in the annual Swedish "Spring Thaw Ride" (well, this year it became more of a "Nearly Summer Ride" 'cause it was moved from early April because of this year's long winter :-/)… this is a 280k's Roadbook ride (navigational) with nearly 60 riders (would have been 80 if held in April) throughout the forests and countryside of southern Sweden on mostly gravel and forest roads - fantastic!
It is actually arranged by an oz expat, Troy Safari Carpenter is his name on the AdvRider-forum, so I had a chance to chat about my favorite second home country :-)

After the ride Saturday during dinner it was time for the price award ceremony - all was none-competitive… so the awards were something like best 'Bush-mechanic' and best mate-award :-) I was lucky enough to receive an award as well… As I was the only female rider and participant (!!) I got the 'Chix in Stix'-award :-0
Please see the attached picture :-)
I believe that this award was introduced this year…In his motivational speech, Troy told the audience about the fantastic Chix in the Stix-rides in Oz - and when handing me the paper he asked me to pass his greetings and acknowledgement on to all the Chix in the Stix back home :-)
So here you go… you're on the map in Sweden ;-)


I'm thinking Saturday the 20th July, we will try and catch ourselves some winter sunshine in Central Vic, and do a day ride. I'm keeping this one simple - for me mostly as I'm flat out doing fun things. It will be fairly easy dirt with some tar thrown in to link the dirt bits. We'll have lunch in a cafe that's nice and warm,..... and dry!

I need to work something out for those who wish to stay in the area for the weekend, would be great to have dinner together and maybe sit around a campfire.

As alway, I welcome your thoughts and input.

All girls welcome.

Oh, and Troy ...... "Gidday mate"
It was a pleasure to have Dorthe on the "Spring Thaw" Ride this year and especially nice to finally get to meet her in person after seeing and reading so much about her trips and exploits in Oz here on yje forum... including her forays out with you Chix 'n Stix girls.

Vårrundan (Spring Thaw Ride) has had a number of female participants over the years since 2005 (the "Rose among the thorns" award - as it has previously been known - has been awarded to four or five lady riders in past years). But when GSDane turned up (with her big smile and charming aussie/danish dialect), it seemed to me that an "homage" to your little group of Oz adventure ladies was apt.

Which got me to thinkin' (Dorthe and I actually discussed it at breakfast on the sunday)... If you girls ever do decide to put on a ride; where you relent and allow some of those pesky penis weilding riders attend...

... then you can always title it The "Prix in the stix" ride.

Stand up (to pee) comedy at it's very worst.


cheers.

Don't think that will happen Troy, don't think the boys will be able to tolerate the topics of conversation or the laughing and chatting.

Gee, even some of the Chix were complaining on one of the trips that I have been on about the topic of conversation.

We need to be able to complain or talk about the "Prix" for the weekend without any of them being able to defend their gender if required.

So where might we go?

MJ,

What about a bit of a spin through the Wombat, lunch at Trentham?

Getting the XT back for the occasion..........

I like your suggestion, quite likely to be a bit of a cold wet bog hole in there at this time of year though. Still keen?

I was thinking of something including ridge line tracks like Porcupine Ridge rd and Limestone Track. Not so much wetness up there. Maybe some stuff out towards Heathcote, there are some lovely little dirt roads out there.


Troy I quite enjoyed your "pee comedy". We miss GSDanes big smile.
I love to join in on your Spring ride one year, sounds like lots of fun.
