Survived my 2nd weekend without a ride


My 2nd weekend without a ride ... survived .. just.

I’m sure seasoned MTBers, certainly those Sydney-siders who sat out last year’s wet, will tell me being on the sidelines is just a fact of life, but that doesn’t make it any easier. I had planned on defying Doctor’s orders to ride OMV on Saturday but the rain gods put an end to that – maybe they are looking after me.

The weekend was spent doing “Man Jobs” and scoring much needed “Man Points” with the missus. A few more weeks of this and I will definitely deserve a weekend riding Stromlo and Majura Pines.

I did however get some quality time with the keyboard. A few backend improvements to the website while working on the backlog of MTB videos that need watching definitely eased the pain.  What I didn’t do was get on the exercise bike ... the weigh in this morning wasn’t pretty.

This week’s goals:

  • No Doner Kebabs
  • Walk at lunch every day
  • Get on the exercise bike every day
  • No chocolate (beyond the daily ration)

Trail Centres and Trails featured in this blog



This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
