    Do enough of these rides and your turn will come

    I was offered a ride out on the quad. That sounded like hell. Plus someone might have seen me.

    The steep cunty hill I rolled down on the bike a few metres at a time. Looked safer than walking.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Everybody listen, do yours say, what mine says?

    I could barely fucking walk let alone ride, I got a ride out to the ambulance in a side by side, that's better than a quad right ?

    Yeah some of the tracks would on the main loop would be much more difficult if it was wet

    9 weeks on, thought I'd better get xray. 5 ribs still broke. Well now I know. Guess that explains a few things

    The weather was mint, however l felt the course was pretty average. Not much challenge in the main loop.( and l am a bit wimpy to do Enduro loops unless they have been checked out first as muppet friendly!) Very dusty. Kick, l saw an it200, was that you?

    Great ride. Nor Wester kept the dust mostly away. Kick had the mighty RMX out. Nice. I did fail on the first Enduro. More hill climb practice needed......

    Beautiful valley was ummm beautiful! Brilliant weather and a technical track with some great forestry sections. Some of the steepest descents l have done. Unfortunately l borked my knee on a slow speed crash on a wet grass downhill and could only do one lap. Great ride.
