    Wombat Woodend track status

    WTF, Rus is more likely to tell you it will be crap if its wet. Saves us a lot of work filling in holes. It's very wet and soft out there after the rain and snow we had on Thursday.

    Bsc !!

    Im not sure why you are surprised. TFM almost went under 6 months ago. If it wasnt for one of the smaller investors taking on the whole lot it would have just closed down.

    Mt Macedon MTB Trail Map

    I think RVM means Wombat Trails. The Mt Macedon trails (Als tracks and the piney loops) are lot closer to Woodend than the Wombat track. Its only about 10 mins until you hit ST. Russ can help, also the thursday night rides are good as we usually ride on the Mt during winter. The link bellow...

    Mt Buller to Craigs Hut Return

    Craigs Hut is about 5 kms from Bluff Spur Hut which is the one at the top of Stonefly. Im not sure why you would lug a 5-6 inch bike through a great cross country ride like that.

    KONA Clock2clock Challenge, Sunday March 4th 2012, Woodend

    Ok back inside now. The biggest problem we have had is the 17 trees that fell down on the track this afternoon. We have had just under 10mm of rain in woodend today but it was more drizzle and we didn't need rain coats etc to stay dry and we were out for 8 hours. As long as we don't get more...

    KONA Clock2clock Challenge, Sunday March 4th 2012, Woodend

    Ok just back in from the track. Other than puddles the track is dry. The puddles are pretty much all drained and even if we get rain tomorrow you should be riding a reasonably dry track. The forecast for the local area is bellow and race day should be good. We will continue to keep drain puddles...

    KONA Clock2clock Challenge, Sunday March 4th 2012, Woodend

    Just a quick note about the track after the rain. This area is not to be confused with the Wombat track. This area dries very quickly after rain because its on the side of a hill. We have a temps in the mid 20's forecast for Thur, Friday and Saturday so it will dry out. Actually most of it will...

    29er spoke tension

    Mate I had issues with this as well. Everyone kept telling me that they shouldnt be as tight as 26ers and I went through 3 rims in 6 months. I got very fed up with it all and built up a set of FRM 388 with DB dt's and BRASS nipples and asked the builder to tighten the $%^&& out of them. Havent...

    Camping at Wombat State Forest

    Actually the best camping would be at the caravan park on Blckforest drive. Firth Park is the coldest bloody place thats full of moto dicks and 4x4 dicks in the world. But that just my view.
