Always looking for somewhere different to ride, and today it was Trailforks to the rescue. So, we rode Rokeby, for the first time, which is only an hour from home. Just natural bush trails, all starting and/or finishing on a rail trail. Lots of meandering, and taking one fork, then backtracking and taking the other fork. Loving the new bike. The was some fear and loathing with the wide bars and some very tight switchbacks between trees, but I think I’ll persevere. Had to park a few times as there was a few horse riders. Anyway, it was a lovely day, and it’s always good to ride somewhere new.

Loving the legendary Trailmix kit. Reminds me of good times at Lysterfield.

It's all just a little bit of history repeating... ;)
Building bikes is pretty addictive.

Fortunately my shed and bank account are not big enough for me to indulge as much as I like. Plus Mrs will wonder why you need N+4 and beyond.

Sure it will be a super build.

Love a new trail. Looks a bit Blair Witch in those parts sir :)
Yep, quite Blairlike for sure in spots, but with some other bits being very tight and quite slow going, but fun still. Other bits were fast and flowy. We'll go back for sure and ride some of it the other way and some of it both ways next time.

Yeah the Trailmix post ride days were great. Justin was such a loon with his dicking around, and just being able to talk mtb with like minded souls after the ride, with a coffee and a bite to eat, was great. ‘twas my LBS for a while and we bought a few bikes off Snoz.

Re the top, Sue hadn’t worn it for years, preferring running tops, but it resurfaced recently and I think it looks good. She wore it at Blores last week, see the pic.

Today’s ride was some of Candlebark and then more of the new to us trails further out of town. Speco. Very nice.

Pretty fun weekend out at Youies with the All Mountain race. Hope there's more similar events in the future.

Pretty unlucky day on the bike though, did 7 total runs and only 2 were trouble free. The rest had flats, dropped chains, false restarts etc.

Was an awesome day yesterday. Didn’t make Saturday practice because broken bike.
Thought I must have walked under a ladder too as my first 2 runs had 2 flats then 3rd run caught up behind a kid but managed to pull 4 good runs out the day.
Great event and great format.

Not happy, Jan.
What's it called/where does it start?
Dunno what it’s called but it runs parallel to Pork Barrel - entry a few meters beyond the entry to PB when coming down off Wedgetail.

It’s all huge built berms, then crosses over PB as it enters the trees and turns into a technical downhill territory - armour and full face required, big rocky drops!

Ah ok. I rarely go that way, I tend to head up to Magpie Rock from Wedgetail.

Can't see what you're describing on the trail map, so will have to have a look when I'm there next.
