- Today, I are mostly going
Weather set to be sunny, 30c with a slight breeze. Feeding the little one now (giving the wife a lie-in gets me a day out on the bike!) and packing up shortly.
For any Perth locals who know the area, where’s the best place to park? Is there a visitors centre / cafe?Posted 5 years agofarm-boyMember
Depends how far south you are. Roe Hwy -> Welshpool Rd -> Bickley is a fast drive to the KC.
Jarrahdale is ok. Lots of flowy singletrack but no real hills and nothing technical. Jarrahdale General Store do a mean Jarrah burger for afterwards.
KC is worth the trip and def will be in a couple of months when all the new trails are open.Posted 5 years ago
Just got back from kc. Bloody knackered. Was 34c.my first proper my session since we came back to oz. Been riding to work most days but this was fun and tiring. Nice nit of cake and coffee when I finished then dropped into Kalamunda cycles to look at ibis bikes I can’t afford. Going back on the 20th but don’t count on my fitness! So out of shape.Posted 5 years ago
Hi Rich. Thinking I didn’t have any takers for Sunday, I’ve since committed to a 7am ride with my usual crowd. Will be back at the Camel Farm by 10am though, so if you want to meet then for a ride? Cafe doesn’t open till 9am anyway, so if you’ll be leaving the family to fend for themselves then a later start might be better.
Let me know if that’s of interest, or we can do another time – I ride every Sunday, and some Saturdays too… Maybe we should try for the 20th if that’s when aphex is next available?Posted 5 years ago
Yeah I’m over there on the 20th. Meeting a couple of mates there who are NOTORIOUSLY late for everything. I will be there on the 20th, just not sure what time. If you see someone struggling round, sweating and swearing on a Pipedream hardtail with green Oury grips, that’ll be me.
BTW if anyone knows Lakes Bikes, they are relocating and have 20% off sale today, Friday and Saturday.Posted 5 years agoWildHunter2009Subscriber
Didn’t realise so many people lived in Perth! I will be up there from about 8 ish sat morning, trek ex9, not fit and most likely muttering angrily at my lack of technical compensation at the mo. Rode metasoma for the first time this sat, tis a fun addition!Posted 5 years ago
8am is early for the first weekend I’ve had off in months! I had to book annual leave to get it too. I pictured a fry up, some coffee, casually putting my bike in the car, driving up Kwinana Freeway and a leisurly jaunt around ‘Munda. I have a feeling we have very different fitness levels. The other week was the first time in 6 months that I’ve actually been off road and was buggered, eh! Normally on the roads and coastal paths.
I’ve texted my mates to see if 8am was too early but, in true Aussie fashion they’ve not even replied yet. *rolls*Posted 5 years ago
Hey, I’ll meet whatever time works for most people – I only said 8am as that’s what Wildhunter2009 suggested above. And don’t worry about fitness, I was only kidding (kinda) that you did a lap with us then another with your mates 😉
I’ll check back on here before the weekend, and whatever time has been decided, I’ll be there… 🙂Posted 5 years ago
