Awesome day guys. Lots of fun and laughters all day long playing in the mud. For some it was Karma day
but if you wanna give you have to be prepared to receive.
Looking forward to the next one!
Special thanks to Mick for leading and Macca for making sure we were all staying together.

Todays ride report: The season opener.
With the weather being kind to us it would be a crying shame to waste it. Mick called the ride and 7 of us jumped aboard. Not a bad turnout for a school day👍 Mick, Jed, Junior, Hooters, Pas, Macca and me. Meet at Sawyers Valley 7.30, I rock up fashionably late as normal then off to the park spot. First drama of the day my truck goes into limp mode on the way up🤦‍♂️
Eventually we get there and gear up.
Mick leads and Macca takes sweep duties. Steady away into a few single tracks to ease us in (its been a while) then into the hills. Trails get better, pace gets quicker hills get tougher. All going great until Hooters spots a nice rock face to test our abilities 😬 Mick comes to a hault followed by me then Junior🤦‍♂️ here comes the excuses "that bloody Pommy" hes always in my way🤣 same shit different ride🖕🤣
Anyway Junior picks up his dummy and we continue. Tons more single track, hills and creaks. Ahh speaking of creaks, Hooters must have been feeling the heat as he took a quick swim in one🤣 zero sympathy was given by myself, Junior and Jed whom all just laughed at the daft sod and revved our bikes in applause👏
Clearly none of us have grown up as roosts and soakings got bigger and better by the day, my best offering was to Pas who took it with real grace😉
Micks idea to get a few action shots at the top of a steep valley led us to our next highlight, Hooters and co cruise up with Jed and me next up. To my horror half way up Jed hits a neutral and almost stops dead, me fully committed behind get a smell of the hospital grub😬 by some miracle Jed hooks a gear, I mess him and we both come out smelling of roses with the pic of the day👌
A few more big climbs and Macca is feeling the pain on the big 4 banger, deffo gets my vote for ride of the day for chasing all the smokers all day👍
Back to the trucks for a cold beer and a yadder to put the world to rights. All in all a bloody awsome season opener. Cheers boys, roll in the next one🍻👍
Oh final point stack of the day has to go to Hooters for his little swim in the creek😝

Big trip!

e-Mountain bikes!!

Good luck with the sale Andy400 - it's on the notice board.
If you get no takers here, I'd say put in on Perth Adventure Riders Buy and Sell on Facebook before putting in on Glumtree etc...

So Eddie, Mick and I had a sneaky E MTB ride up in Kalamunda. We hit the ground running due to the hot weather so we were on the bikes about 8am not stoopid early, perfect. First time for me running an e- bike on dirt. Both on Giants, me on a reign Mick on a trance. Ummm it was wicked, so much fun, different but same same. Mick has been out a few times but it was basically a couple old gumbies floundering around. Peddle strikes everywhere, trying tweak our skills to suit a 25kg mountain bike. The trails were cool just as much fun uphill as down due to the motor. The basic skills transfer easy, line selection, braking, balance- to a point. We hit one of the black runs, and apart from a couple of man made jumps which looked big an scary they were mint, easy rideable for the average dirt bike rider. Iíve got a long way to go, timing the peddle rotation to avoid the dreaded strike, getting momentum correct and the much lighter braking instead of skid braking everywhere. But fun times ahead, stay tuned for the first big stack cause itís coming I reckon, we were both wearing knee elbow guards gloves an helmets, it was warm towards the end but not too hot wearing all the gear so Iíll be using it for sure. Junior.... you out there.... helloooo... junior?......

Ps cheers mick for being gentle with me on my virgin ride
