Mount York

A full run of mt york

This is the best way to sample all the the convict trail on Mt york. Has some tough techi ups, which will have most people off and pushing now and then,

Some nice techi downs and some lovely flowy trail.

Starting at the bottom of Mt Vic pass the first 100m of Berghoffers is tough but doable with the hardest bit going over the drain as you pop back out onto the highway.

Hassans Walls

Grand tour of the classic All Mountain trails on Hassans Wall

Wasn't sure how this one would end up.

Set off and caught a site of the rare and endangered Meggsie-on-a-bike, this is the second siting in 2 weeks so it appears they could be back from the brink of extinction. It was such an honour to interact with one in it's natural habitat....

Umm we headed on up and hit the Town House track and then came back around town where Meggsie decided that was enough for his second ride back in far too long.

Ride Database Entry: 

Motor bike loops a bit of a mess with deadfall and ruts at the moment

This one was tough. All the hills normally doable but the first bit of single trail is all but unrideable due to dead fall meaning I was off pushing far more than I would have liked
