Best thing I've ever done

Well apart from mountain biking and well... you know.

Renee bought me a RIP:60 for my birthday last year and like with most things I was skeptical.  I admit that it gathered dust for about 6 months until due to a change in jobs I had an hour spare in the mornings.  I dusted it off, hung it off the patio and started the first DVD in the series.  I initially didn't like the cardio bits in the workout but each week it builds and I see the benefits of it now.  Then I was hooked.

When a Sunday Morning Ride Becomes an Epic

This morning three mountainbiker friends and a dog set out from the Italia Road entrance and headed into Wallaroo. "Take it easy on me.." said the Captain, "I haven't ridden for a while." Well what started out as a  gentle ride to take it easy on the Captain ended up a glorious 4 hour epic to Wallaroo's boundaries that had the best of Wallaroo: technical up hills, rocky downhills, awesome views, hike-a-bikes, wherethefuckarewe moments and fun all the way.

Shiny Objects Aren't the Answer - (Mike Kazimer, Pinkbike)

Mountain biking isn't about shiny objects. It's about where those shiny objects take you, the adventures they facilitate, and the stories that result. There's a raw simplicity to it all – even the most elegant and meticulously crafted bikes are still designed to be ridden away from the concrete, to be pummeled and thrashed like pugilists, enduring round after round of use and abuse. 

Cairns & the Smithfield Trails

During our 3 week trip north I got two sessions in at the Cairns Smithfield Trails and one session at Atherton - both very different beasts.
My first session at Smithfield was by myself and the second I got talking to a local at the Trailhead and he was more than willing to show me around some more (even though he had finished his ride) and lead/talk me through some sketchy sections like 'Croc Slide' and 'Rodeo Drop'.
