Just wondering if anyone was up to a ride on the 24th.

Starting @ 8:30am from Douglas St entry. I'm open to suggestions as to routes to take.

Weather permitting (it hasn't so far :S) I will bring my camera.

Sorry Mitch,

As you can see, I've been talked into Yellowmundee Saturday 24th June.

Might be looking for something short and sweet on Sunday though, depends how it goes tomorrow.

I was just reading the Yellowmundee conversations and I wondered how long it would be before you posted for Cascades Mitch and there you are!!

To say there was mud would be an understatement; they have resurfaced most of the main clay :S Needless to say the trip down was slow, and up was slower. It was kinda cool though, there was a whole lot of fog in the valley at 8:30, and I was riding through it. I went down the main train from Douglas St, and there is clay on most berms, and just before. I turned down Bear Creek trail, they have resurfaced the hill just before the stream, so it is now relatively smooth. The stream was now a river. So yep. I saw Tien on the way back up.

I took my camera, but didn't take many pics because I have an SLR in a backpack, and every tiem I stopped to take it out my shoes would sink into the clay/mud, so i've taken a few pics. I'll post links sooner or later.

I'll most probably be riding it again tomorrow, for those who want to join me. I'll see if I can bring mum's point and shoot, for easier access Sticking out tongue
