Again more than just a ride journal today. A mix of riding and bushwalking. But first the riding.
This was my first real go at mountain biking. It turned out to be much harder than I expected, lots of fun and much harder than doing the same kilometres on the road. We “road” 11.2 km, but it was much harder than I expected. That 11.2 km involved I think five falls, some walking, and lots of heart rate spike moments ( but good ones!). It was fun!
I put down some of the falls to just not being able to un-clip quickly. The Shimano M520 SPD clipless pedals on Julia are tight and seem to need to be worn in somewhat. I have them fully adjusted out but it is still hard to get a good un-clip movement.
Nine of use enjoyed a great night of wine, food and good humour at the Murray Campsite. There was water in the pool out front of the campsite, so well had swim after arriving. Not too cold at all.
The walk in was an easy 4 km but still nice to get out with like minded folks.
