It’s a good service Stu and you’ll get a lot of runs in. When you thinking of doing it? I’ll give you a state of the trails update at the time. Worth having a ride of the Freeminers if you’re riding at pedalabikeaway, there’s even some ‘shore being built! 8)

In short, I think it’s still well worth the effort in the wet, but dress appropriately!
It was dry yesterday and this morning and I was really surprised how dry the trails were on the first couple of runs. There were quite a few puddles, but the trails themselves were all running pretty well. The morning started dry, but the rain set in just before lunch and it was lashing down when we went back out after a rather nice pie in the cafe. Due to the heavy rain this afternoon there was water running down/across a few of the trails, but the ground below that was still pretty firm and was actually faster (probably because the mud was less sticky).
The stoned track from the start ramp to the start of Corkscrew and GBU was running really well, Corkscrew was muddy in places, but flowing nicely and really fun, the top section of GBU was a bit heavy going, but it was running well from the first fire road, Endo was really sketchy and I’m not sure how I got down it, but it was still good fun and got the adrenalin pumping! The top of Ski Run was a bit of a slog (as always), but the rest of it was running nicely and I didn’t ride Sheepskull as it was raced on last week and a few others said it was pretty cut-up (I rode the top section down to the start of Ski Run and it was very muddy and cut-up). The only area which was particularly difficult was the flat section where all the trails end and cut back to the uplift, but that wasn’t really an issue.Posted 4 years ago
