since the weather was crap this morning I had a nice lie in and when i arose the weather wasn't to bad! Giddy up I thought, so hoiked over to Lysty for a cheeky run, did a different route to usual and took in the quarry track valley view, games track and then down to the lake via the Hug. The place was empty, i saw maybe half a dozen lads on bikes, Trail mix was closed!! no coffee shattered!
Anyway i wanted to testride a few goodies I got recently. All i can say is get a dropper seat post. Up hills is fully extended as usual, down hills and switchbacks drop it and you have much more confidence to really throw it into corners and over stuff.
New pads were a godsend, pretty hairy in places today, these new ones bedded in pretty quickly after a few hard stoppies.
Considering the deluge we had in the last few days, the trails were in great shape, well drained.
So there it is, carpe diem and you get rewarded with an empty park and not bad weather! I met the mrs after the ride in Coles to do the shopping covered in mud hehe the looks i got with a skunk ass stripe and tide lines where my socks were!
