Until today I knew nothing about MTBing, but now am keen to give it a go.....It is off road, challenging +++ and the best part had a really friendly atmosphere and lots of people having fun.
My pics will be available on www.actionpactpix.com on Wednesday, as I am in Melbourne for a couple of days now. I was only originally staying at Blores until 12, but left at 2, walked about 40 minutes longer than planned and enjoyed the whole time.......All I can say is get into your local bike shop, Avanti were sponsoring today and the gang fro Sale's Push N Pedals were there to provide test drives on Mountain BIkes and also ride the event.
It was an 11 km course and had a couple of testing and scenic climbs................Here are some sample pics from today...........and stay tuned for the rest....
