ahh im jealous. had a ride planned for today but got stuck dogsitting. on top of that, did a 25 mile road ride yesterday and had wanted to add some gravel to it but ran out of sunlight.


Not sure how i feel about the global warming/extended alpine riding time. on one hand, extra months in the higher mountains means better riding for me, but it also hasnt rained here in over 6 months i think? every time i get stuck behind a slower rider now, i get to the bottom of the trail with a literal mouth full of dust.
Yeah, It is very dry here as well, The soil is hydrophobic and wont even absorb moisture.I would love to see the mountains covered in snow and get back to normal weather patterns.

speaking of which i went out for a ride before work today at a usual "winter" spot, and the steeper stuff was nearly unrideable, like 2-3" of loose dust. still sent it but damn, if it would rain, that'd be pretty cool.

Rode Bert Flinn today. Got bit by an off-leash dog, ironically owned by a mountain biker. Ran into a bear on Jo-Jo Finn.

Fun day.
Your bears hibernate late.

Mediterranean climate. It was warm enough for shirt-sleeve riding yesterday. And today. Tomorrow, not so much.

It really is magic.....

Well..at least one of the provinces is magic.

Pamplemousse is probably the best way to end an Alice Lake ride..after all the steep rocky jank, that flow makes you feel like a super hero.

I`d would have come and gone if it wasn`t for the PANDEMIC .
Had plans to visit Canada in their summer . Stayed at home and discovered a bunch of trails here in Oz .

Maybe New Zealand in the new year ? Other wise could be Tasmania or the Alps in Victoria for some relief from the heat .

Looking into buying another battery I can post to a destination in Oz before hand and fly the E bike battery less .
Or hire a battery on the road .

Unless you park on Perth.

Love that trail. Just rode it a week ago. The more you rode the more jumps and gaps you find. So well built.

Lol was planning on some alpine riding this weekend and of course we are getting a storm, probably some snow up there, and yet still no rain out here on the coast, just wind. ahhhhhhhhhhh
