Its "fun day" Wednesday again!

05 June 2008

Norm and I have been heading out for rides for only a couple of hours, but managing some fun on the MTB none the less.  Wednesday seems to be the day when I can get Norms butt away from the computer.

We headed up Kaanglang Rd again for a 10km dirt road climb.  Boring, yes, but great strength training in E2 HR zone.  Then comes the fun of the fast 1km downhill section to the Kaanglang Quarry that has been used in Otway Odyssey twice.  Drop in on another overgrown but awesome downhill that is a bum touching rear tyre, smelly brakes section of around another 800mts and land on the doorstep of Lake Elizabeth.  

Lake Elizabeth offers some cruel hill climbs, then a 2km climb up the No2 Trail to link onto Red Carpet(no3).  The trail was definately hard packed and reasonably dry today. Unlike 1 week ago where I was sliding all over the place going around corners. We had to do a few tree removals over the track, rotted out old trees that just fall after rain and dampness creeps in.

After our final hoot downhill through the last section of Red Carpet and 20kms later, we were home and ready to get stuck into another days work.  We may even be going for a night ride tonight in Forrest.  Have a great week!
