What did you do TO / WITH / FOR your bike today!

Took the cx bike for road ride (there was a tiny bit of gravel) then finished off the morning with a short mtb segment on it. I was a few km short of my longest ride so was looking for an extension.





Probably gonna do this once a month to keep the legs in check, the speed factor was a stack of fun, but not the same fun as single track!

Rode The Oaks firetrail yesterday, has been graded recently, pretty smooth, no golf ball rocks trying to kill you.
Single trail is awesome, lots of little jumps and drop offs. Rougher than last time I was there, maybe even better.
Climb out still steep

Rode a Red Hill roadside trail today, not a big ride. About an hour. Nice though.

Had to swerve a bit to miss a tiger snake, about an inch to spare. I wasn’t going fast but no way I could’ve stopped, so I hippy shaked around it. Definitely a tiger, but it may have been dead, as it didn’t move at all and it was sort of matte coloured, just didn’t look alive, but I wasn’t stopping to find out.

Took my rear wheel off to check out a slow leak I have at the moment.
Went downhill from there when my cluster fell off!
Seems I might have broken the axle lol. Shit
Now the race is on to find something in time for a Bright trip this weekend.

Sure that's not how its supposed to be?
Either way put it back together and pretend you never saw it.

Went for a pedal yesterday - I'm almost fit enough to go for a training ride with Moorey.

Actually - went for a lap of Lysterfield with some mates and was close to death at the end. I did enjoy a 2 hour nap when I got home. An my bike gear came off the line pre-ironed when I got up.

Yep, I chickened out today on the regular one but that is the higher line and means you hit the landing on an angle.
Wow. That top line is till a big drop. Is the regular to the left with that looks like a ledge to come off?

Yeah the main line has a rock ledge and you can practically fall of it and make the lander. It's all psychological your riding and just seeing sky till you hit the lip, I'm happy to hit dodgy drops and trails but not blue sky for some reason. Brains are funny things when they are trying to protect themselves.

Rode the top bit of Lake Mountain's Cascades track again yesterday with my boys. Was hoping to make it all the way down but it was a touch hotter than expected and had to call it at the ticket booth. Still a great day out, good trail that one, though the abundance of March flies wasn't awesome.

Yeah the ledge also slightly obscures the lander too, totally a mind game, before hitting this I'd never dropped something that blind. On the day I didn't even roll up to the edge as I'd seen it before, instead I focussed on watching the guy who was giving me some guidance land it a few times and then just decided I could land it and went.

Another cruisy 43km river ride this morning. Quite pleasant aside from the behaviour of quite a few cycling groups.

I’m really puzzled how they expect patience, courtesy and respect from drivers on the road, but can’t provide same to pedestrians and recreational cyclists when they’re on the shared paths.
Given up riding around the river, too many people who either take up too much space or hoon around.
Only shared path I'll ride at the minute is the freeway bike path and (if its super busy), between the Narrows and UWA.

I don't understand how that can happen without also snapping the through axle?
