The Thursday Morning Ride

Well, it looks like the Thursday morning bunch ride might turn out to be a bit of a winner. There was 11 of us that turned up at Craig's for this mornings ride. It was good to see not only the regulars but also a couple of new faces as well.

For those that don't know the circuit, the bunch heads out past the Gardens and then along Kirkwood Road. From here, we drop down into the Freezer before turning off the main road into Beecher Estate. A couple of us took the easy option and turned left onto Schultz Rd whilst the remainder of the boys went out to Kitten's Mittens aka Devil's Elbow. There is a little bit of pacelining through Becher Estate and then the bunch turns around and heads back up over Haddock. All up its about 40ks.

We weren't the only ones up and riding at 5am... it appears that a few others were also sneaking in ekky laps around the Sunshine Track before this weekends Sunday Ride. I think the MTB Bug has been biting!! Ray's Brother was also busted doing a few ekky road k's in the wee hours of the morning.

Don't forget Saturday's ride is leaving Craigs at 4:45am.
