Smile Went for a mountain bike ride

Well i decided to continue my plan this weekend for the Woodford to Glenbrook fire trail ride with a friend from work. The weather was cloudy and it sprinkled abit at the start of the ride from my place, but on the track it didn't rain once.

But i must admit i was stuffed after the ride, as i haven't rode my bike and this distance for ages. We done a total of 30km's.
Whats even mroe amazing is this guy i did the ride with is in his 50's and he beat me up the final hill (bloody steep and long) from the Glenbrook creek to the entrance of the park. Put me to shame thats for sure though i didn't stop at all.

Me thinks i need to do abit more biking before my next one. Oh yeah last but not least Aussie Pete was planned to do the ride with us but took the easy way out and watched the sand down 500 in his lounge.

And last but not least about 300m from Glenbrook station my bloody chain snapped and i didn't have a chain breaker. Oh well looks like a new chain and a 7 gear cluster is comming up.

Sounds like you had a lot of fun! Don't worry about the older guy beating you up the hill, I know a few over 60s that are hard to keep up with!

Damn, I got knackered just reading all that!

Forgive my ignorance, but why would you require a chain breaker if it's already broken? Heh, sounds like a BSR invention!

Mate, the chain breaker gets you out of trouble, you break the link that is broken and re join the chain minus one link. At least it gets you outta trouble if the chain snaps during a ride.

I will have to buy to save future troubles.

Hey, I at least pumped up the tyres on my bike in preparation......

I also DID offer to ride in the National Park so we could BBQ afterwards!

Hi Gary,

Good to see you back on the bike. As to getting beaten up the hill, who cares, slow and steady is my motto. You made it up that's the main thing.

Maybe we can get together with a few other FF's some time in the future. 6.00am start so that you get the best out of the ride and surroundings.

Yeah, I'm up for it. Especially if we're talking Royal National Park. After the ride we can retire to my joint for a huge BBQ
