Butting Out

Butting out, Ibis Mojo HD, Mt Tarrengower

Fine and cool  with virtually no wind — what a cracker of a day. Had to get out to The Butts at Mt Tarrengower this afternoon to make the most of it. I really enjoy it up there, lots of fun riding, rugged bush and boulders, views, peace and quiet… and loads of white wildflowers […]

Spring Rates

Spring Returns, Ibis Mojo HD, Mt Tarrengower

First day of Spring, cracker of a day, feeling ok with some time to spare  so had to get out on the Mojo HD. Headed out to Mt Tarrengower to play around on the granite rocks and boulders above The Butts.  Have hardly ridden in the last three weeks so tried to take it easy, […]

29er Stumpy, The Butts, Mount Tarrengower

The guys at The Bike Vault kindly let me take their Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29er demo bike out while the Mojo HD’s rear wheel was getting rebuilt. I’ve had a couple of days on the demo Stumpy 29er before and had a bunch of fun.

The Butts

The Butts, Mt Tarrengower

Not as much riding lately mainly due to a touch of the flu over the last few weeks, combined with mainly grey, cold, damp overcast days. I’ve started to feel better over the last couple of days so made the most of a sunny, clear morning — last day of Autumn — and headed out […]

A thread on Rotorburn a while back asked What defines AM to you?.  All Mountain may be category of bike but it’s way more than that. The heart of MTB is AM, where it’s all about The Ride. It’s not about the race, not about the weight of your bike, what clothes you’re wearing, or […]
