Nice to see DM. All that hard work by yourself and the RedHillRiders and other local MTB riders has finally paid off!

Thoughts on the new trail at Buxton for anyone thats been up recently?

Went today, the climb up is tuff, good luck to 1x10 club. View across to Cathedral Range is incredible, and then its quick. Didnt even attempt any of the gaps, im no good at them anyway but they are big ones. Can see some accidents waiting to happen and there is no fire trails to get an ambo in, maybe its good thing not many venture out there.

Haven't been up to check out the new bit, but there's been some discussion on Rororburn mentioning a few stacks already. Might have to go up for a squizz before they close it for the winter.

Oh?

More climbing than what used to be there? It's always been SS territory for me in the past...

They basically doubled the length of the rollercoaster bit at the end, to get up to the start of it is nearly a 1k climb a bit steeper than anything else there. Bit similar to the Comm games climb at Lysty.

Hmmmmm

Doable on the SS, but I think the 1x10 hardtail might have to come out. That last bit is always the most fun with a bit of bounce :D

Shot out to Lysterfield on Friday lunch time since I was working from home. Had an awesome time, except for a little OTB action. No harm done. Managed to roll on my right hand side, slightly graze the elbow and bruise my thigh. Caught the whole thing on camera so I can look back at what a n00b I was. Nobody else saw me so it's OK :)

Anybody here ridden Silvan or know of some kind of map floating around on the web somewhere?

Ventured out there today but struggled for a bit to find my way around or figure which trails are which and what direction I should be heading. A lot of potential for a good set-up if it gets the green light and legalised. Was starting to have fun until a stick bent my RD. :cry:
