- Perth STWers Kalamundu bimble
Bugger, I can’t do Kalamunda tomorrow, the Trek is broken and riding the Curtis with one brake round there is likely to cause certain death from either a heart attack. If you see me up there at some point say hi, I ride a black and red Trek 8500 the size of a large gate.Posted 4 years ago
Was there just after 10. My God I’m so unfit. Crashed once chickening out of a jump and lost my front wheel turning too fast. Rode from the Camel farm to the Dell and down the road back to CF. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Very techy in places. I really like the flowy sketchy stuff. The rocks were a bit of a pain but fun and I definitely don’t need the wider bars I’ve been thinking about.
Heard lots of English accents and followed a bright blue Disco back down to Kalamunda but it turned off.Posted 4 years ago
I started off just about 9.20, did the circuit and met perthmtb in the car park at about 11 I think. Loved the ride, took some getting used to riding off road again and getting confidence back after breaking my wrist a few months back. The rocks did my head in (rocky balboa was certainly aptly named!) and gave me a pinch flat. After the obligatory cake I then took my soon around the skills loop and over to the pump track so you might have followed us into Kalamunda about 1 ish Aphex.Posted 4 years ago
Was that your blue disco then we followed out? There was a black disco behind you, then my x-trail. You turned off then we followed the road round to Kalamunda and straight to the pub and a chat in the bike shop.
Some of the rocks are a pain – you just get into a flow then have to totally adjust your flight path to avoid a rock. Don’t think we did Rocky Balboa section. Was a bit stiff by the time I drove back to Rockingham. Smiles all round though. I think there’s some race on tomorrow? 6hr or something. There were a few people out fixing up certain sections.
Going to head over to Langford Park / Jarrahdale on ThursdayPosted 4 years ago
It may well have been me Aphex, its bright blue, has a couple of stickers on the rear window.
It’s the Jorgensen park 4 hour race, did it last year and ripped myself to pieces on the gravel, not this year though!
The circuit reminded me of Penmachno, good fun, just not enough flow.Posted 4 years ago
Well I was there at 8am, but no sign of Wildhunter (guess Friday night was a good’un) so I went for a ride at about 8:30. Back at the car park 9:45, again no sign of anyone so went for another ride – realise now Marmoset would have just left for a ride and Aphex wouldn’t have arrived yet. Anyway, passed Marmoset mending his puncture – but not realising it was him carried on, but we finally hooked up in the car park and had a cake and a coffee together and swapped details so we can ride together soon…Posted 4 years agoWildHunter2009Subscriber
Yeah oops. A slightly enthusiastic night sampling belgium beer in Mt lawley led to extreme pain on saturday morning. I think i might have been ok to ride but certainly not to drive!
Made it up on sunday morning though, what a beautiful weekend for riding! First ride this year where iv felt remotely flowy or skillful. Kamakaze is good fun though i find it pretty frustrating sometimes, if your having a slightly bad day it punishes line choice horribly. Metasoma is good fun and i love the last section coming towards the pump track car park.
Off back home wed so riding old haunts if i gte lucky!Posted 4 years ago
