Fatties:
Despite knowing about this fact yesterday, I decided to with hold it as it related better to tonight. The inner trails are once again accessible!!! :D

To clarify, the big gates are no longer gates, they're big wooden chicanes that you can fit your bars through. At least one fence has been cut and removed in a way that suggests parks did it. There were several missing "no bikes" signs. Now, while none of this suggests that we're allowed to ride on the trails, we can at least get to them.

P3030002

On a sad note the broken pipe on the trail between the Eastern Fwy and Bellbird Park has been removed. I will miss that pipe, it was a challenge the first day I rode those trails and each winter the best line changed, meaning that it was still a challenge the last time I rode it.

Oh, the ride? It was a nice cruisy night. No one felt the need to go hard, so it was mostly laughing and chatting about the enormous tiger snake that almost ate Mario.

As an aside, I highly recommend you ask Gavin about his night. After the ride, over beer and pizza, he told a story that reminded me of a movie I once saw.
