26/05/2010

Commute:
A bloody gorgeous morning, and just as pretty looking day. I tried to pull a sickie mid way through the day, but no one was convinced once they saw my longing looks out the window.

P5260002

Monos are still coming along, they're not perfect but today I managed a couple that lasted around a hundred metres each.

D: 27.2km
A: 220m

Fatties:
It should be self evident that to do a night mountain bike ride it is vital to have charged your light battery. As you've probably guessed I completely forgot to charge mine, and hoped that despite it's age it would still hold it's claimed 5-6 hours of charge. It didn't.

Just before the pipe bridge it died, from there through to Studly Park I rode behind others, trying hard to stay loose and judge the trail by their silhouette. A couple of times I started to drift back off their wheel. Fighting all logic, going against your natural reaction to slow down, and instead chasing back into that inky darkness was unnerving.

D: 17.5km
