When surfers go mountain biking good shit is going to happen.
Chocolate and chairlift runs. Not a bad way to spend Easter Sunday morning I’ve gotta say!
And just like that, Summer in the mountains is coming to an end. It’s been a good one!
All those warm, sunny hours of daylight at the start and end of the work day have been replaced by the cold and dark that precedes Winter. Who knows what that will bring… more ridey ride time hopefully!
Managed to squeeze in an early morning ride at Falls Creek before heading back to Central Victoria for a few days.
There’s definitely plenty going on in the run down from Cloud Nine to the village. Fast open sections, tight twisty sections winding through snowgums, tight bermed corners, lots of rocks, big and small, scattered eveywhere, and some good opportunities to get air. Add in the climb up from the village and it’s a super interesting loop and a challenge to ride fast. All up perfect for gradually rebuilding fitness, confidence and skills after the AC Joint reconstruction in November.
Really looking forward to banking some epic night rides in the mountains at Falls Creek before the Summer is out. I’ve had a few shorter test rides since Australia Day just to make sure everything is set before heading out on an epic. It always feels pretty sweet ripping along the trails in the dark, amongst the snowgums… and not a bogan to be seen up out along Frying Pan Spur at night, well apart from me that is 🙂
Heaps of riders enjoyed prime trail conditions at Falls Creek over the Australia Day Long Weekend thanks to a massive storm on Friday. The cafe and shuttles were pumping Saturday and Sunday but I still managed to get out for some big rides after work, including one down to Bogong Village via Junction Spur, returning to Falls via the tracks that service the Mt McKay Power Station. Solid climbing effort, on flats even!
