The day of the first Wombat Forest Monthly MUni finally arrived, and amazingly after more than a week of cold drizzly weather the sun came out. Blue skies, fresh clean air — an awesome day for Mountain Unicycling.
After meeting up at the Glenlyon General Store we drove to Bridge Road/Reed Track, a handy starting point with forest rides heading out in all directions. With uni’s sorted we hit the trails.
The ride route:
Mud puddle crossings were the order of the day, providing lots of laughs and wet gear, but unfortunately no full on face plants 🙂
After looping down to the Loddon river and back up to vehicles we rode down an unnamed idyllic stretch of single track.
After the ride we headed back to the Glenlyon General Store for drinks and food.
Many thanks to Barry and Julie who came up from Melbourne, and generously helped out with a spare MUni. Barry, Morgan, Paddy and Eric, thanks for the ride. Onya guys!
Lesson learned: Everyone bring more food next time, and a few more tools.
Next monthly MUni: Sunday 12th July
